School Sports

Since April 2010 Premier Sports Coaching has worked to bring sports to Primary School children in a fun and educational environment that will enable them to develop an interest in health and physical activity, while at the same time progressing a wide number of sporting and personal skills. When one of our coaches comes into your school they are fully insured for the coaching activities as are the participants. Coaches have also been Garda Vetted! Our School Services on offer are as follows:

PE Classes/School Coaching

By working with the principal and teachers, as part of the school timetable, we can help to provide the children with many of the fundamental skills that they are required to learn as part of the National PE Curriculum through our coaching sessions, Skills development programmes and PE activities!

How it works:

Simply, each week (or agreed dates) we can come in during the timetabled PE classes and take the session for you. All the basic skills of the curriculum can be worked upon such as:Running, Jumping, Throwing, Catching, Kicking, etc. We can cover both team games and individual sports skills. Our coaches can work with the teachers in deciding what will be covered during the class time, or if you prefer, you can just leave it to Premier Sports Coaching to design a suitable programme for your students – it is entirely up to you! Sessions can be carried out indoors or outdoors, and the length of each PE session will depend on the amount of time allocated as part of the school timetable. These details should be stated along with class sizes and type of sports required when contacting us, in order to help with session planning. Special rates are available for long term bookings, and we regularly have special offers available for schools to avail of on our Special Offer page! Our PE classes and coaching sessions can be used as a way of introducing a new sport to your school!

We offer a wide variety of sports and activities to choose from and unlike some other sports coaching groups we can work with ALL primary school children from Junior Infants up to 6th class!! Sports currently available for schools to choose from include:

  • Basketball
  • Soccer

We pride ourselves on our flexibility when it comes to working with schools, this means that the duration of a programme can be decided by you! (we recommend between 5 and 10 weeks to get the most benefit from a programme).

The price of a school programme will vary depending on number of participants, duration of activities and venues but we will always do our best to meet your schools budget, with prices starting form as little as €2 per hour per child!

Sports Days

We can plan, prepare and run sports day events for your school. Our sports days can be tailor made to suit your requirements. These can be sports specific, multi-activity, team based/individual or designed with a class vs. class element (within year groups, but not overly competitive), etc.

The emphasis of our sports days is on fun and participation! Prizes/Medals/certificates can be provided if required (these will be included in your total price when you receive your quote). Each child will get to participate equally in all events. Although our team will be running the day, Teachers will be required to be present to monitor the students between events. All equipment will be supplied by Premier Sports Coaching if required, we can also make use of any equipment schools have and would like to be used. Sample Activities would include: Races (Running, Skipping, Obstacle course, etc.) Novelty Activities (egg & spoon, sack race, bean bag etc.), Sports Skills (Soccer, GAA, Badminton, etc.) or Team Games and matches.

Please note schools who are not current or past customers of Premier Sports Coaching will need to pay a 50% deposit when booking a sports day to secure your date. Sports days are available subject to dates being free, please be aware that we work in schools all year round and often get bookings over a year in advance so we advise booking early to avoid disappointment!

Extra Curricular Activities

Our Extra Curricular activities are an excellent way to bring regular exercise and physical activity into the lives of school children. These activities can take place at any school and are available in a host of sports and activities! They are a great way to introduce kids to new sports, get extra coaching in a popular sport or for schools to offer additional activities that they may not be able to squeeze in during the school day! We currently offer three after school sports programmes for you to choose from:

  • BASKETBALL; 5 week programme
  • SOCCER; 5 week programme
  • BADMINTON; 5 week programme (please note a hall is required)

Our extra curricular activities can operate with children in all classes of your school so nobody misses out!!!
