One of the stated aims of the HAF programme is to enable children to: “take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment.”
So, it’s clear to see why the team at The Little Foxes Club were keen to lend their experience – and well-proven children’s sports programmes- to this excellent initiative!
It reflects our strong belief that grassroots sports should be available to all children, of all abilities and fitness levels. Everything we do is about building new skills and interests but also growing the social interaction and FUN children get from sports activities and games.
We also believe in providing bespoke children’s sports programmes in communities. So, we have worked with each local authority to devise school holiday initiatives entirely geared towards each area’s aims and needs. Including multi-sports sessions designed to attract active involvement from even the most ‘reluctant’ or disenfranchised participant.
After all, making children feel comfortable, welcome and supported is central to all that we do.
Of course, keeping participants active and out in the fresh air also helps to build up their appetite, when the HAF programme works with participants on the nutritional aspects of the campaign too.
