The safety of the children in our care is our utmost priority.

It is the first message we teach them both at the after school club and at the holiday camps. The children are taught how to keep themselves safe whilst playing sports and how to handle the equipment safely. They are also told to tell an adult if they have any concerns about anything.

All our staff have current enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) background checks.  Caroline and Nikkii have Paediatric first aid and child protection certificates. Simon has current first aid and child protection certificates. Allsports Kids Ltd is fully insured to deliver children's sports programmes.

About us


Allsports kids have been running after-school clubs and holidays camps at St John's C of E school, Buckhurst Hill since 2013. In 2019 we started On the Ball, before school sessions to wake children up before they start the school day. 

Our aim is to foster a passion for sports and the outdoors in children from a young age through a combination of fun games, adventure, engaging sports and creative art projects.  Childhood should be a magical time and we enjoy getting children back to nature and giving them a chance to be creative.

An increase in physical activity has also been shown to improve children's attention span, social skills, self-esteem and confidence.

'Fit for Life' - we believe passionately that when children are exposed to regular sports,fitness and exercise in a fun and engaging way the desire to stay fit and active stays with them for life. We love sports. We have spent our whole life involved in sport and want to pass that love onto the next generation.

​The coaches


Allsports kids is run by Caroline and Simon, both with extensive experience of delivering sports and adventure programmes for children.

Caroline: I am a qualified primary school teacher. I taught for 10 years at a school in Chingford before having children. I then trained and worked as a Montessori teacher  in Walthamstow for 6 years, taking my children with me. I taught P.E at Braeside Junior School when my children started at St John's school.

I also coach tennis to adults and children at The Connaught Club in Chingford. I have played tennis  for Essex for over 30 years and represented England in the over 40's team. My parents both represented Great Britain at tennis too. 

I was a Beaver Scout Leader for 6 years with the 41st Epping Forest group and took the children on many camping trips.

I now get to combine my love of children, the outdoors and sport by running Allsports kids.

Simon worked for the NHS in London and specialised in health and fitness and emotional wellbeing for young people who have learning disabilities for 10 years after being a social worker. I was a Scout Leader with the 41st Epping Forest Scout group for 11 years, working with cubs, scouts and explorers and still supports them on sleepovers.  He also has a Sports Leaders Coaches Award in multisports.

Nikkii is a qualified P.E teacher and worked in schools for many years. She has worked for Allsports kids for 5 years and also runs Nordic Walking sessions in Epping Forest.
