Junior Sports Coaching
in Gedling

In this modern world of advanced technology, where every child can find themselves on an exciting adventure in an unknown world at the flick of a controller switch, it can become easy to forget other activities, even ones invaluable to a child’s development. There has not been a video game designed on any platform that can improve physical and mental health, develop motor, cognitive and social skills, teach discipline and resilience and build self-esteem and social skills while having fun.


All things provided by participating in team sports.

Benefits of Sport for Children

Though we touched on the child development benefits of junior sports coaching for Nottingham, we believe it is important to understand the advantages offered to children by participating in sports and group activities, both physically and socially.

  • Physical Health
    Sports engagement promotes regular exercise, strengthens muscles, improves cardiovascular health and maintains a healthy weight.

  • Social Skills
    Participation in group activities teaches teamwork, communication and leadership, essential skills for success in various aspects of life.

  • Sense of Belonging
    Sports cultivate camaraderie and a sense of belonging among children, reducing feelings of loneliness, improving social integration and developing empathy.

  • Discipline and Perseverance
    Children learn discipline, perseverance and resilience through sports, as they set goals, work hard and overcome challenges. They learn that not everything in life comes easy, but if you put in the work, you will see the results you want.

  • Self-Confidence
    Achievements in sports and group activities boost children's self-confidence and self-esteem as they recognise their capabilities and accomplishments. It can also help bolster a supportive nature as members of a team.

  • Healthy Competition
    Engaging in sports teaches children about healthy competition, encouraging fair play, respect for opponents and graciousness in victory or defeat.

  • Stress Relief
    Participation in physical activities serves as an outlet for stress and pent-up energy, promoting mental well-being and reducing anxiety.

  • Life Skills
    Sports teach valuable life lessons such as time management, responsibility and the importance of dedication and commitment.


Overall, sports and group activities contribute significantly to children's holistic development, enhancing their physical, social and emotional well-being while imparting essential life skills for their future success.

School Holiday Sports Activities

We Help Parents Too

“Mum, Dad, I’m bored.”

Sound familiar? Parents typically encounter a significant challenge during school holidays; struggling to balance work commitments while ensuring their children are occupied. Finding suitable childcare or organising activities can become a logistical nightmare or a financial burden we could all live without.


Throughout the summer of 2023, Grade A Sports delivered over 600 hours of high-quality sports and development activities to children in Gedling and the surrounding Nottingham areas, as part of the HAF (Holiday Activity and Food) programme. The objective of the HAF programme is to offer support to children from local schools during the holiday periods, including free places to children who would usually be provided with a free school meal.


We believe the HAF programme is an essential scheme that allows children from difficult backgrounds have the same opportunities and required social development of their peers.

Through the summer of 2023, we provided over 2000 hot meals to children from over 30 different schools along with engaging holiday activities filled with laughter, friendship and fun.

It's clear that Grade A Sports realise the positive difference sport and physical education can make to a pupil. They are highly skilled providers that act as a vital tool for schools.
