Simon Scholfield, founder of SCS Sports Coaching Services is also Head of Prep PE at Gateways School. The camps provide a range of sports experience and activities including Unihoc, Softball, Tag rugby, Football, Basketball, Netball, Dodgeball, swimming (8 and over) and short tennis.

If you’re looking for something fun, educational and active for your kids to do during the holidays, look no further! Below are testimonials from parents who have used SCS camps before:

We genuinely cannot recommend SCS coaching enough, we have two boys aged 8 and 6 and they look forward to the school holidays so much just so that they can go to the sports camp. They love the staff and the variety of activities that they have each day, swimming is a highlight for my eldest child. They also enjoy meeting children from other schools as well as their own, so we cannot thank you enough for providing such a rewarding, reliable and trustworthy camp for our boys, we would be lost without you! Mr & Mrs Burnley

The camp is run by experienced sports coaches who have worked in schools and are DBS checked. The camps are held at Gateways School, Harewood with swimming sessions at Wetherby Leisure Centre (transport included). The camps run from 9.30-4.00pm with wraparound care available from 8.30 to 5pm.
