"I’ve been involved in youth football for many years and currently Mercian League CWO for the FA. I have to say that your contribution to providing high standard grassroots football for the community in holiday times is the best I’ve seen around for years
Your whole approach and daily structure of the game is outstanding, we will be joining most certainly for many more.”Sharon Townsend, Campers Parent, Mercian Youth Football League CWO
Worcestershire FA is pleased to add AJB Sports in Education to the list of accredited coaching organisations in the county.

AJB have worked closely with Crowle First School for a number of years now - they are hard-working and always offer us exactly what we have asked for. Their service is excellent, and Andy is so approachable. They offer us small group interventions (fine and gross motor support), have supported our play leaders, supported PE planning and coached our staff across all areas of PE. They are friendly and polite, and our children love working with them. I cannot recommend them highly enough!Martina Abbott, Head Teacher at Crowle First School
Andy has delivered several masterclasses to our students and is helping to inspire the next generation of coaches at our University.
AJB Sports in Education has provided our students with valuable vocational opportunities to apply their theoretical knowledge and practical skills within a coaching/educational context.Chris Cattell Senior Lecturer and Course Leader for HND Sports Coaching and PE - University of Worcester
Andy and his staff have been working with us now for the last three years. They began by providing after school clubs but have quickly moved into teaching PE to cover staff PPA release. Andy teaches from Reception to Year 6 with total professionalism. Activities are always appropriately aimed at the age and stage of the children and he caters for SEND children extremely well; managing some very challenging behaviour with a firm but fair approach.
In the past three years Andy has become part of our staff and does so much to support physical activity in school; including accompanying groups to sporting activities. It is always a pleasure to welcome Andy and his team to school; they are cheerful, professional and enthusiastic. Most importantly the children love them! They have done a fantastic job in motivating our children to love sports.
I have been working with Andy from AJB Sports in Education for a couple of years now. Andy and his team have been invaluable for helping to get badminton going in local schools. His positive energy and enthusiasm is endless and he clearly is very passionate about giving all children he comes into contact with the best possible PE experience. I look forward to continuing to work with Andy and the AJB team!Campbell Wilson - Badminton England
My son has been going to camp ever since starting school and still looks forward to attending every time. He has made life long friends in a fantastic environment, with brilliant staff. I never hesitate to recommend AJB Camps whenever fellow parents ask me what I do for childcare during the holidays.
As a bonus, by the time the end of summer and the football season starts, I notice a huge difference in his ability, year on year! Kid's develop best when they're enjoying themselves!
We have worked with Andy and his team for a number of years and feel very lucky to have found such reliable, friendly, and nurturing educators who take the time to provide a tailored curriculum to support our school. They take the time to get to know the children as individuals and address the physical educational needs of each child as well as their social and emotional well being. The activities are really enjoyable for the children and we have watched them growing in confidence and independence as they have moved forwards.Lisa - PE Coordinator, Crowle First School
Andy has been teaching multi skills to my Reception classes for the last three years. He is always punctual and well organised, setting up in good time for the lessons.
Behaviour is always very well-managed and Andy has high expectations for listening and good manners. He plans his own sessions, in consultation with the teacher and taking into account the expectations for the end of the Reception year. He also provides feedback on the children’s progress and achievements, as well as their ability to work together and follow instructions.
The children really enjoy their sessions with Andy and he develops great relationships with them based on mutual respect but also allowing for lots of fun. I would thoroughly recommend him to teach Reception classes.
My daughters have been attending Multi-skills holiday club for over 2 years now. There is a good choice of activities on offer and my girls never get bored. I like the fact they can be active in a safe and motivational environment. The coaches are friendly and approachable and my daughters always have a big smile on their face when I collect them. We'll be definitely coming back!
My daughters joined Wild Cats last year. They enjoyed every single session and always look forward to another one. We can see them develop a new skill every week. The coaches create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in which the girls are able to learn the value of team spirit.Izabela - Campers Parent
My two children, age 10 and 8, have been going to Football Fun Camps for the last two years. They always have a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoy the wide range of activities that are offered. Andy and his coaches are great fun and give off a positive attitude which reflects onto to the children. As a working mum there is nothing more assuring than to know your children are safe and happy.Siân Upshon - Campers Parent
