Sportstarz Holiday Club @KGV

(For children aged 5 – 13yrs)

Every parent needs help during the school holidays, maybe you need childcare because of everyday work or maybe you would like your child to be outside taking part in different activities, socialising and making new friends instead of being indoors all day. We are here to help! Why not send your child to our holiday club? We provide a fun and active style of childcare which involves a wide range of fun activities from sports to arts and crafts.


Why would I choose Sportstarz?

We are a fresh, new company run by people with plenty of experience in organising and running holiday clubs that encourages young people to get off the sofa, or that Nintendo DS they crave, and get out there and take part in fun activities in a friendly and controlled environment. This can lead to new hobbies and interests, and of course making new friends.

Who would be looking after my child?

Gareth Coombes: has assisted and run activity clubs on the Island for nearly 13 years. He is well known to many children and parents across the island for tennis coaching and running childrens parties. Gareth has great experience in the running of a wide range of activities and possesses the knowledge and awareness to ensure this is done with full participation from children in a safe manner.

Michael Trotter: has nearly 10 years of experience in assisting and running activity clubs on the island. He has led activity clubs from a very young age and has had great success in doing so. Michael has also gained experience in working abroad in America on a children’s holiday camp during the summer as a Camp Counsellor and tennis coach. Michael is always planning new games and drills to get the best out of the players that he coaches, while maintaining a great level of enjoyment for all.
