Welcome to PTC Sports

Kids, Health, Exercise and Wellbeing

PTC Sports was established in 2013 as a sports coaching service provider. We work with schools across the country to deliver the most current and exciting sports activities. Our programs are not only incredibly fulfilling, but also help children to maintain a healthy lifestyle and wellbeing.

We do this by providing:

  • Support to help schools achieve outstanding PE sessions
  • Continuous professional development for teachers and school staff

Extracurricular activities, including:

  • Before school
  • Lunchtime
  • After School
  • Holiday clubs
  • Inter-school competitions.

It’s wonderful to see children enjoying a sport they’re passionate about. As they get older, we strive to connect them with local sports and gymnastics clubs so that their skills can be developed even further.

Our Objective

At PTC, we aspire to create the best opportunities for children, regardless of their age, gender or status within the community. We provide activities that may not be accessible to everyone outside of school and ensure a fun and safe environment.

Our staff set themselves high standards, ensuring that every attendee is fully engaged with their sessions. They take pride in being qualified in their chosen sports; constantly developing their knowledge so that they can continue to advance the skills of their pupils.

When my business partner and I heard of the franchise opportunities with PTC Sports and what was to be offered, it was an easy decision!

What really set PTC apart from other franchises was the support on offer. They have a more personal approach due to being able to deal with the manager 1-2-1 rather than having information passed through numerous individuals which you find in more corporate companies.

Upon visiting PTC sessions, delivery was of a high standard and professional. This coincided with the good reputation I had heard from neighbouring areas.

Taskin, the director, has played a key role in the start-up of the franchise, setting up marketing strategies to reach new schools, attending and leading our first five appointments and supporting us on a daily basis with admin, coaches and courses.

I cannot wait to see what the future brings for myself and the PTC brand.

PTC SPORTS HOLIDAY CLUB

We can now announce that we will be able to hold our Easter multi-sports holiday club at Caterham High School. Due to government guidelines, spaces are limited, so contact us if you are interested to avoid disappointment.

Our popular holiday club is packed full of activities for all abilities. Basketball, gymnastics, dance, cricket or rounders are just a few of the sports available.

We offer two different Holiday Club Camps in two different dates:

 

Covid information:

In PTC we are very much aware of the Government and Public Health England guidelines on social distancing, and we operate ensuring children, staff and parents’ safety. But that doesn’t mean your children can’t have fun!

These are some of the protective measures we are going to implement:

  • Smaller group sizes. Each group would operate as a bubble during each day of the Holiday Camp, and they would be assigned a coach for the whole day.
  • Staggered times for registration at lunch times.
  • Adapted activities & equipment.
  • Improved hygiene & cleaning routines.

In order to keep everyone safe, we are asking that you do not bring your child if they:

  • Show any symptoms of COVID-19 on the day
  • Have any symptoms within 7 days prior to attending
  • Are living with an individual who has shown symptoms within 14 days before the date of their attendance (they and you should be self-isolating as per government guidelines)

Children who turn up with a cough – or who are accompanied by an adult or sibling with a cough – or who are otherwise obviously unwell, will not be accepted by the registering leader. The leader’s decision on this matter is final, and neither they nor we at head office will engage in any discussion on the matter.

Please be responsible when making a decision about registering and bringing your child – bringing a child who is mildly ill, even if you are sure they are well enough to attend, could threaten the health of other children, and of our staff. Our staff are required to self-isolate at the first sign of any symptoms, so if you send a poorly child – even if you are convinced that they do not have COVID-19 – you risk us having to cancel all future sessions for this season because our staff will be unable to work.

 

Staffing

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, our activity professionals have completed an Infection Prevention, Mitigation and Management qualification in order to provide the very best care to the children under their supervision, and to colleagues.
We have revised our activities to ensure that they can be delivered whilst observing the 2m social distancing rule. This does mean some activities will not be on offer this summer, such as contact sports, but most importantly it will facilitate the delivery of fun and engaging activities in a SAFE way.

 

Day swap:

Spaces are given on a first come first serve basis, once a child is booked onto a day, this day CANNOT be swapped, this is to ensure bubbles have the correct number of children in them and that the time taken to organise the day for the coaches is not disrupted. 

 

Refunds:

We cannot issue refunds if your child decides to not attend your select booking.
If at any point your child is NOT permitted to attend the camp due to COVID-19 symptoms and has to self-isolate, please be aware that we will be offering a transfer to another camp in the future.

Back to school checklist: resuming physical activity

As many UK schools now begin to open, there are still a lot of concerns about the safety of children and families. After lockdown, many children’s physical activity has dropped significantly, and it is more important than ever for children to be active for at least 30 minutes within the school day.

 

The benefits of physical activity during those first days of school

 

  • Promotes physical fitness and mental wellness. This would help kids to adapt to a new routine after months of being at home.
  • Physical activity, performed the right amount of time and intensity, can provide benefits to the immune system.
  • Keep practising important concepts of teamwork, leadership, work ethic and integrity.

 

Safety tips for the new first days of sports

 

  • Ensure that children have no COVID 19 symptoms when they go back to school. Families have the responsibility to report any symptoms within their households. Coaches and parents should encourage children to self-report any symptom.
  • Coaches and athletes MUST wash their hands OR use hand sanitiser BEFORE and AFTER each practice or competition.
  • Whenever possible -between games and during breaks- athletes must maintain social distance from their colleagues.
  • Don’t allow them to share any equipment, food, bottles, etc.
  • Prevent them from celebrating or congratulating each other with hugs, high fives or touching each other’s hands.
  • Clean all the equipment used during the games both BEFORE and AFTER the practise or game.
  • Masks MUST be worn whenever possible by parents, coaches and children who are spectators or on the bench during games.
  • We STRONGLY encourage contact tracing for spectators/athletes/coaches.
  • Common spaces like locker rooms or showers must be limited to a number of kids in order to allow social distancing.

 

Keep in mind that, for some kids, those first days are the first in a long time. Therefore, take into account that:

 

  • Children who have had an extended time away from sport should start slow. There is an increased risk of kids getting an injury if pushed too hard too fast.
  • Some of the participants may have had the chance to keep practising sports, but others didn’t. Don’t make them “catch up”. This won’t allow their body to adjust and recover, which again can lead to the risk of getting an injury.

 

If your child has had COVID 19 infection, it will be their GP the one who determines when it is safe to start a graduated return to physical activity, based on their medical history, symptoms and recovery. In this case, there should be monitoring at all times to check if there are any new symptoms or if they seem to be worsening.

 

Dizziness, a difficulty for breathing, less tolerance to exercise or chest pain are some of the symptoms that might appear. If that is the case, discontinue any activity and check with the kid’s health provider what is the best option to follow. Before allowing them to make any physical activity, you should check your kid’s symptoms in case there is a danger of them returning to practising sports.
