Summer Sports Academies


This summer, Canford will once again be running its popular sports courses from Monday 7th - Thursday 10th August.  Now in their fifth year, the courses are aimed at boys and girls in Years 5 - Year 11 and are led by Canford specialist sports coaches alongside external coaching expertise.

There are two courses to choose from – a Specialist Sports Academy for those in current Years 6-11 and a Multi Sports Course for current Years 5-7.

The Specialist Sports Academy allows pupils to focus on developing their skills in a particular sport – this year a choice of Rugby, Netball, Hockey, Rowing, Football and Tennis.   As well as dedicated coaching sessions, during the four days they will also have the chance to take part in additional sports activities making use of the school's excellent facilities and grounds.

Meanwhile, the Multi Sports Course will be offering the chance to take part in a range of different activities each day making use of the school’s facilities such as the climbing wall and indoor pool.  There will be a number of activities on offer each day plus a sport session.
