Want to get your summer childcare sorted…our football camps are just the answer!

We know the summer holidays can be a pain for parents.

You want to balance childcare, your children doing something they’ll enjoy and then not having to pay loads for an activity that is essentially glorified babysitting.

That’s where Foot-Tech comes in.

Not only will your child have so much fun, they’ll also love showing you all the new flicks, tricks and skills they’ll learn under the expert guidance of our amazing football coaches.

May half-term was a SELL-OUT with over 75 kids per day learning through our unique coaching methods, experiencing our fun-football games and, of course, taking part in the daily World Cup Tournaments.

Early drop off available from 8am and late pick up until 4pm at an additional cost at Roundhay camps.

Nearly 3 years in now and I’m nearing 3000 kids, big and small, taught to ride a bike for the very first time.

As a National Standard, British Cycling accredited Instructor for Bikeability Levels 1, 2 and 3 I can get anyone riding in a fun and friendly way. I am also a Qualified HSBC UK/British Cycling Level 1 Ride Leader… and also being a British Cycling Level 2 Coach also helps… with plenty of tricks and resources up my sleeve.

I can get your little ones started on a life of two wheeled fun and adventures from mastering balance bikes to proper pedalling to school or for weekend exploring. If they are already riding and need to brush up on their skills/got a new bike, then an hours 1:1 tuition is perfect too.

Kids shouldn’t have all the fun though so I can get you, a friend or a whole gang of pals pedalling too. Whether you’ve never even sat on a bike, you’re just a bit rusty or you want to take your skills and cycling confidence to the next level for commuting, fitness or just fun I can teach you how to ride happily, healthily and safely wherever you want.

Decades as a super keen rider and test consultant to the UK’s best selling bike magazines means I can even help you choose the best equipment, learn how to plan routes that suit your needs and ride them with you if that helps.

I’m fully insured through British Cycling, a qualified Emergency First Aider and have a full and complete Enhanced DBS certificate.

Cycle lessons for kids. Bike lessons for adults. Learn to ride a bike. Cycle tuition. It all boils down to one single word… fun ”

w/c 5th, 12th and 27th August 2019, 9am -4pm

Our holiday clubs are a great way to introduce or progress children’s music and art and craft skills.

Our clubs are welcoming, with a family feel, as we keep our numbers low (usually up to just 16 children).  Camps are suitable for children 5 -11 years.

All our music and craft skills activities are carefully planned around a story and offer something for everyone, whether they are avid crafters, or already play musical instruments or if it is all completely new. Everything the children make they get to take home. Snacks are provided in the morning and afternoon, so children just need to bring lunch. We are also lucky enough to take our creativity outside to the Inspirations Garden, which we use as much as possible.

W.C. 05.08.19: For the first week of our summer holiday club we will be getting into the holiday spirit by exploring the book, ‘Over in the Ocean’. We will also be looking at the very topical discussion of how to reuse our plastics, rather than recycle and making some fantastic things from them before they end up in the sea.

W.C. 12.08.19: Our 2nd week will be with the fantastically funny book, ‘Revolting Rhymes’, by Roald Dahl. The songs from each story very cleverly teach the children about pitch, dynamics and tempo, as well as the opportunity to explore the different instruments and their timbre.

W.C.27.08.19: All our music and craft activities for week 3 of our summer holiday club will be based around the book, ‘The Days the Crayons Quit’. We will be exploring colour in all ways possible, including mixing colours, using tie dye, separating colours in a way where science meets art.

Our usual day runs from 9am to 4pm, however there is an option to book an early drop off from 8am or a late pick up session until 5.30pm

Just call 0113 4001077 for more information or email or go to to book your child’s place.

29th July – 1st August & 12th -15th August 2019, 10am -3pm (Ages 8-14 years)

Leeds Rhinos Netball provides training programmes for the Yorkshire region, including a high-performance Academy linked to England Netball, as well as weekly training sessions for beginners and improvers from the age of five years. During school holidays, we run a number of age-based netball camps where children learn skills specific to netball and others great for general development – cognitive, social and team-building skills. Most of all, our camps are friendly, inclusive and fun!

Our Minis Camp, for ages 6 – 10 years, includes fun games and lots of netball basics and is ideal for those who are very young or completely new to the game. Our Fun Camp, for ages 8 – 14 years, provides more netball-specific skills and techniques, perfect for young people already familiar with the game and looking to improve.

Each camp runs from 10am to 3pm daily, with individual day tickets available or a discounted full camp pass. All you need is comfortable clothes and training shoes, a water bottle and a packed lunch.
