*Coaches correct at the time of advertising (October 2019) but subject to change

With such a talented array of coaches TAGS certainly offers a broad programme of high-quality coaching and opportunities to progress into sports specific pathways. With all highly qualified staff DBS checked, safeguarding and 1st Aid trained children get the chance to have FUN and flourish in this high quality environment.

Athletes are coached and analysed by up to twelve professional bodies per camp, from different pathway sports, with the purpose of finding new talent. Halifax RLFC, Panthers Cheerleading, Bradford Dragons, The Cricket Asylum, Brighouse Town FC, Brighouse Ladies FC, Calderdale Netball, Halifax Sport Karate and many others are a few of the amazing partners we have had delivering on the Halifax Camps.

Every athlete also undertakes the TAGS Tests to find out how fast, supple, balanced, agile, powerful and fit they are. All athletes and parents will be sent their “personalised profile” post camp. This can be shared with club coaches, school teachers and even compared with friends to see how good you really are! (We will not share your child’s information with ANYONE without your express permission).

There is also Dodgeball, Endball competitions, Olympic Days, World Cup tournaments, penalty shoot-outs and plenty of other activities for FUN and engagement.
