A bit more information on funetics

Athletics is where it all begins. Learning to run, jump and throw is the foundation for a lifetime of activity.

funetics school athletics activities offer everybody, irrespective of size, shape, cultural background or disability, the opportunity to achieve great things and to live a healthier and happier life.

We want to help children of all backgrounds and abilities to flourish and reach their full potential.

funetics aims to create opportunities for more children to find a sport they enjoy. It is important that primary school children sustain their participation in sport and to do this we believe creating the “right experience” is key.

What do the athletics holiday camps offer your child?

  • A safe, fun and supportive environment with qualified and experienced coaches and funetics Leaders.
  • The opportunity to interact with current friends or make new friends.
  • funetics creates moments that they will want to share with family and friends.
  • The opportunity for a child to continue to enjoy primary school sports and to 'learn' during the holidays.
  • A 'taste' of the entire funetics programme, which they could access thereafter in funetics schools or athletics clubs (via breakfast and after school clubs, curriculum lesson and junior athletics sessions).
