Three of our children attended a multi sport day and all came back really happy and had an excellent time. My partner also commented on how enthusiastic the coaches were and how good they all were with the children. The costs were really reasonable too. Highly recommended.
We are so pleased with Progressive Sports. The service and coaches are completely professional, extremely hard working, they’re very prepared, and they come in with everything. They’ve added real value to the school and the children.
My son has been for his first couple of session this week & loved it. He’d been really anxious about going which had made me stress about it as he’s only 5, but his response tonight was that it was “100 X awesome”!! Huge thanks. Great relief to know we have a super holiday club option on our doorstep.
I just want to say a massive thank you to the coaches for the year 6 Summer of Fun event yesterday! It was absolutely amazing, the kids loved every minute. The coaches were just faultless with their energy and relationships with the children!!!
