Active Kids Cancellation Summer 2020

We very much hope that your family are keeping well.

At Sport Sheffield we realise that the last 12 weeks haven't always been easy and many families are looking forward to bringing their children to structured activity camps over the summer holidays.

The health and well-being of our children and the grown ups that bring them to our camps is of the utmost importance, and it is with much sadness that we are writing to inform you that we don't feel we will be in a position to be able to offer Active Kids Camps this summer.

Whilst we are not in a position to offer children's activities at present, we are working hard deciphering Government and governing body guidance to ensure that we have policies and procedures in place to welcome your children to future camps.

We love having the children on site; they bring with them such energy and enthusiasm and whilst we will miss them this summer we are looking forward to welcoming them back soon.
