We offer a range of after-school and weekend introductory sport courses, specifically designed to help your child learn core skills and progress their abilities in their chosen sport.
Courses run for 9 to 12 weeks during each academic school term and are instructed by our qualified, DBS checked coaches.
We also offer drop-in sessions on a 'pay-as-you-go' basis; a great, flexible way to try out a new activity.
Essex Sport on social media:
All courses are held at the Colchester Campus and take advantage of the fantastic sport facilities we have at the university.
Download our leaflets to find out more about junior courses in tennis, climbing, karate and dance, as well as Pay and Play sessions in futsal, basketball and badminton.
There will occasionally be weeks without a session due to other events taking place in the sports facilities; please refer to the course timetables for more details.
If space permits, taster sessions may be accommodated for a course. These must be pre-agreed by the Sports Development team.
Demand for places is high and some courses sell out quickly. If you would like to join the waiting list, please visit or contact the Sports Centre Reception on 01206 873250. You will be contacted if a space becomes available.
