We pride ourselves in ensuring that a safe, fun, and positive educational environment is consistently maintained, to encourage a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle for all children who we work with. The safety and welfare of all children who attend our activities is of paramount importance to us. We keep a valid DBS certificate on file for every staff member and all of our group leading coaches have passed the Introduction to Safeguarding Children course and possess a valid first aid certificate.
The service we provide prides itself on four key areas:
The outstanding on-site facilities we use provide an ideal setting for children and staff to be safe, have fun and to excel. Our base at the exceptional private facility of Hazelwood Sports Club in Winchmore Hill, North London hosts both indoor and outdoor tennis courts, sports halls, sports fields, state of the art changing/toilet facilities and a safe & secure clubhouse. Hazelwood is also the home of our permanent office.
Our coaching team is comprised of highly knowledgeable and qualified sports coaches who possess considerable experience working with children of all ages and abilities. The safety of your child is our main priority and we ensure that all of our coaches have a valid DBS certificate on file and that a certified first aider is always on site. Our staff all possess at least a minimum level 2 qualification in the sport they specialise in with most even higher and all lead coaches are trained in Child Safeguarding. We regularly invest in the enrolment of our staff in coaching courses throughout the year and hold regular team meetings to ensure our coaches are prepared to deliver the best service.
Enhanced learning occurs when we are placed within a positive teaching environment. Kalo Sport places a heavy emphasis in ensuring that we create a fun and sporting atmosphere for children whilst promoting an environment in which they are motivated and inspired to learn.
All of our coaching sessions and camps are structured to ensure constant development. We aim to blend instructive and dynamic technical practices with stimulating and enjoyable game-based coaching and mini-tournament play, which is suited to your child’s relevant age and ability. We are very strict with ratios and age appropriate coaching groups. All children who attend our tennis programme are assessed and receive a personal progress report twice per year.
