Educational Sports Coaching in Newark

In today's era of digital immersion, children can easily indulge in virtual adventures with the push of a button, but it's vital to not overlook activities essential for their development and growth. While video games offer excitement, they lack the capacity to enhance physical and mental well-being, motor skills, cognitive abilities and social interaction, or instil discipline, resilience and self-esteem – all benefits from participating in group activities and team sports.


Grade A Sports stands out as a premier provider of educational football coaching in Nottingham and the surrounding areas, boasting over a decade of experience in primary and secondary schools. We are dedicated to delivering top-notch physical education to all students. We firmly believe no child should face barriers to achieving their dreams, regardless of abilities or background. Through our extensive network of professional and grassroots clubs, we provide fantastic opportunities to propel children toward their career aspirations.


Reach out to our knowledgeable team and explore our sports coaching sessions that can elevate your child's abilities and help them become the next Mary Earps or Jude Bellingham.


Benefits of Sports for Children

While we touched on the benefits of child development through Nottingham educational football coaching, we want to emphasise the true value of participation in sports and group activities for children, encompassing both physical and social aspects.


  • Physical Health
    Participation in sports promotes regular exercise, strengthens muscles, improves cardiovascular health and helps maintain a healthy weight.

  • Social Skills
    Involvement in group activities fosters teamwork, communication and leadership – essential for success in various aspects of life.

  • Sense of Belonging
    Sports cultivate camaraderie and a sense of belonging, reducing feelings of loneliness, enhancing social integration and nurturing empathy.

  • Discipline and Perseverance
    Through sports, children learn discipline, perseverance and resilience as they set goals, work hard and overcome challenges.

  • Self-Confidence
    Achievements in sports boost children's self-confidence and self-esteem as they recognise their capabilities and accomplishments.

  • Healthy Competition
    Engaging in sports teaches children about healthy competition, promoting 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 impart valuable life lessons such as time management, responsibility and the importance of dedication and commitment.


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

School Holiday Sports Activities

Supporting Parents Too


“Mum, Dad, I’m bored.”

Does this sound familiar? Parents often face a significant challenge during school holidays: juggling work commitments while ensuring their children remain engaged. Finding suitable childcare or arranging activities can quickly become a logistical nightmare or an unwelcome financial strain.

During the summer of 2023, Grade A Sports stepped in to ease this burden by delivering over 600 hours of high-quality sports and developmental activities to children in Newark and the surrounding Nottingham areas as part of the HAF (Holiday Activity and Food) program.


The primary goal of the HAF initiative is to aid children from local schools during holiday periods, including offering free places to those who would typically receive free school meals.


We firmly believe that the HAF program is a vital initiative, enabling children from disadvantaged backgrounds to access the same opportunities and essential social development as their peers. Throughout the summer of 2023, we served over 2000 hot meals to children from more than 30 different schools, alongside hosting engaging holiday activities filled with laughter, camaraderie and enjoyment.


Contact us to learn more about our upcoming school holiday sports program in Newark.

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.

Let’s Get Active Together

Sports serve as the ultimate means of connecting with others. If you meet someone who doesn't share your language, what better way to communicate than by simply kicking a ball to them? Chances are, they'll kick it right back, highlighting the universal language and bond that sports create.


At Grade A Sports, we wholeheartedly embrace this philosophy and provide unparalleled sports education to children through our Newark educational football coaching. Our mission revolves around aiding children in achieving personal growth and development through active participation in sports, thereby shaping a brighter future and improving their current mental wellbeing.
