Key Stage 2 Pupils at inner city and deprived area Primary Schools.
What does the programme involve?
It’s a weekly after school programme for up to 30 KS2 children (selected by school) and lasts a full academic year taking place at a local inspirational site, such as private clubs, universities and leisure centres. The children have 1 hours professional racket sport coaching, 1 hour extra STEM education (delivered by school teacher) and a healthy meal.
How much does it cost?
The Rackets Cubed programme is always free for the children. Schools are asked to contribute £350 per academic term towards costs. The host sites provide their facilities free of charge and the remainder of the costs are covered by Rackets Cubed through support from our sponsors and local funding.
What are the benefits for the children?
The programme has proven positive impact on children’s physical literacy, provides them with professional racket sports coaching, gives them additional STEM education and a healthy, nutritious meal in an inspirational location.
