• Julian Cousins Sports - Kids Sports Camps





    Julian Cousins Sports Camps was started to offer fun, progressing sports activities during the school holidays. We have been running successful sports camps at Clapham Common for over 10 years now. Partnering the team is Alberto Kurti, formerly of Oliver House School and now appointed women’s coach at Crystal Palace F.C.


    My team of coaches and I offer a range of sports including tennis, football, cricket, rugby, hockey, rounders, volleyball and golf. All activities are scaled for age and abilities. Our staff are qualified sports coaches and local school teachers well experienced working with young children. Simple games and drills to encourage rapid skill development, co-ordination, footwork and teamwork, and most importantly... fun!


    We follow the Ofsted guidelines on ratios and all the leaders have current DRS/CRB and safeguarding training. We will follow the Government & Sports Council instructions on Covid-19.


    Mini Camp

    Here creating a safe fun environment is key and we employ many local school teachers to help this. Our sports coaching programme can help develop their motor skills, team work and understanding of sports.


    Junior camp

    With this group we start introducing more technical elements of the sports and fun competition. Introducing sport specific vocabulary is a key part of this group.


    Senior camp

    The older children will develop more advanced technical and tactical elements of the sports involved. We encourage their input to ‘take ownership’ of the sessions which engages them further.

    After that there will be a structured warm up before the children are separated into their age groups and assigned their coach for the first activity.


    We have three separate age groups:


    Mini camp 3-4 year olds

    Junior camp 5-8 year olds

    Senior 9-12 years old


    All the games and activities will be scaled for the abilities of the groups supervised by qualified coaches. There will be regular rests and water breaks throughout the day with a supervised lunch. You will need to provide the packed lunch and water bottle. Scroll down the page to read the 'essential information'


    You will receive a further email prior to the camp with more information too.


    3pm PICK UP

    The Bowling Green Café








    All the activities take place within the area by and around the tennis courts. No transportation will be used. In case of poor weather we will use the pavilion to take shelter.


    1. Don't forget refillable water bottles, lunch and if the forecast suggests a rain jacket.
    2. Sun tan cream in the unlikely event of sunny weather!
    3. We will take frequent water and rest breaks so don't be bemused if you see us sitting near the pavilion or under a tree for a few minutes.
    4. Mini-club HAVE TO BE TOILET TRAINED. We can help but we don't have the staffing time for nappies. If your child is liable to accidents(!) please supply a change of clothes.
    5. NO SANDALS OR OPEN TOED SHOES - NO EXCEPTIONS. Spare trainers if you have them please as the ground is currently wet and muddy.
    6. Please supply a nutritious lunch for an active day. Please do not give your child money to buy lunch from the cafe.
    7. Please NO NUTS in snacks or lunch. Please ask your child not to share any food at camp.

    9. Any questions etc please drop me a line or speak to us after registration.
