Frequently asked questions
How long are the lessons?
How many children are in a class?
How much are the lessons?
Can I do a trial lesson?
Yes, you are welcome to do a trial lesson, once there is a space available. This will be charged at a rate of £8 and should be paid online and prior to the lesson.
I am on the waiting list, how will I know if a space is available?
When should I pay?
Payment should be made before the first day of the lesson. NO place is guaranteed without payment and enrolling first.
I’m not sure how my child will react at the first lesson?
What happens if I don’t wish to continue?
Where are the lessons held?
The lessons are held in an indoor venue. This could be a sports hall, community centre, school, leisure centre or church hall.
How will I find out where the lessons take place?
Can I join part way through a term?
The courses are ongoing, so you can join at anytime. Fees will be charged pro-rata accordingly. You may still register even if the start date has passed.
What are the term dates?
Are the lessons fully insured?
All Tots in Sport lessons are insured by a leading childcare insurance company and cover both personal accident and public liability.
Are your coaches trained?
Our coaches hold full coaching qualifications and have undergone our comprehensive Tots in Sport in house training scheme.
What should I bring with me?
We advise that you bring suitable refreshments for your child after the lesson.
What should they wear?
It is advised that comfortable and supportive footwear is worn. Sandals, Crocs and Welllington boots are not advised. Comfortable clothing should be worn. Your Tots in Sport kit will be supplied during the first course and the majority of children wear this.
Can I bring younger siblings to the lesson?
Yes, but we ask that siblings are kept clear of the playing area. Please ensure that they do not disturb the lesson or play with any equipment, unless it has been offered by the coach.
My child loves Tots in Sport how can I make sure that they can continue next term?
Once you have enrolled them, their place will automatically be reserved for the following term. We will send you an email (with plenty of notice) when the next term dates will be available. A deadline will be stated in the email of when you need to rebook by. This will give you priority before we remove your child from the lesson and offer the place to someone on the waiting list.
Will my child automatically move up to the older age group?
Our online booking system will not automatically move your child up to the next age group. If the classes you attend are busy, it is worth adding your child to the waiting list sooner rather than later to ensure you are notified as soon as a place becomes available.
All of the lessons are full, can I place my child in an older lesson?
Each lesson is designed for a specific age group. The pace of the older lesson is faster and more challenging skills are achieved. It is therefore not appropriate to have a mix of ages outside of the recommended age groups.
Are you taking any COVID precautions?
In accordance with guidelines and to ensure infection control, all equipment is regularly cleaned with antibacterial treatment.
