Throughout the day:


The day will be split into several sessions and each of these sessions will have several sports to choose from. We encourage children to choose different sports throughout the day but also promote excelling in a particular favourites. We will have short breaks between each session and these breaks will allow the children to unwind and prepare for their next chosen activity. Lunch will be between 12 and 1 and will also provide a place for arts and crafts.

 

 

HDO Day Example:


HDO is the perfect place to entertain those who are just starting to enjoy sports as well as those who already have a clear talent for sport. Our coaches range from county to international professionals and can boast great teaching success throughout a number sports. What better place to help your children improve and excel before school starts?

 

For any more information please don't hesitate to contact us using our contact us drop down tab or emailing at info@saturdaydropoff.com



How ages are split:


HDO has age specific sports (more contact based sports) but also have sports that cater for a mix of age groups. Trampolining for example, benefits from having a mix of age groups as its a non contact sport so poses no danger. HDO knows that having different ages groups or development levels helps children advance far quicker as they have the opportunity to see and learn from those who are progressing ahead of them.

We would never mix ages should there be any safety issues. 

HDO always gives several sports to choose from so siblings have the option to stay together should that be a concern.

 

Swimming:


We understand that swimming is a big concern for parents and it shouldn't be. Before any swimming session children will do a non pressurised swim test that allows our lifeguards and swimming teachers to assess swimming levels. 

Our swimming sessions are always heavily staffed  and we are very strict in the policing of the pool to make sure it is as safe as any other sport that takes place. 

HDO provides children with armbands for those that need it

Testimonials

"Just to say a huge thanks for making the Easter holidays so much fun for Josh and Sam. They had an absolutely brilliant time, were so eager to get out of the house every morning and full of news about what they had been doing during"

"My two children, aged 9 and 4 absolutely love Holiday Drop-Off. They enjoy the variety of activities on offer and meeting other children. They feel safe and secure in a familiar environment and always ask to go back each holiday. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming and my children are always delighted to see them again. I have no hesitation in recommending Holiday Drop-Off"

"My 5 year old son had a really enjoyable time at the October half term HDO. He has been to other holiday clubs but HDO is by far his preferred option. He really enjoyed trying out new sports like archery, and loves the trampoline, but its the relaxed, friendly and individual approach of the team that makes HDO different and so much better than other holiday clubs. He happily did his first full week with HDO, something I would not have even contemplated with another club"

"Amazing camp, amazing staff"
