Sport Plus Perth? July12-17th 2020
Sports Plus is an intense week of specialist sports coaching and team competitions for young athletes who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. A focus of the camp is exploring who Jesus is and what it means to be a Christian in sport (you don't need to be a Christian to come to Sports Plus but helps if you are interested in exploring who Jesus is).
You can choose one of these sports to get coaching in: cricket, tennis, netball, soccer, rugby, triathlon, AFL footy, hockey or basketball. Sports Plus is a 6-day fully residential camp. In 2020 Sports Plus Camp will run from Sunday 3 pm 12th July til 12 pm on Friday 17th July at Guildford Grammar School.
Sports plus is an event of On Mission Games and has been running in Perth since 2014. The Sports Plus model has been run for 20 years in the UK by Christians in Sport. Sports Plus has no official association with Christians in Sport but has modified the Sports Plus model used in the UK.
Hear more about Sports Plus in an interview with Director Dr Laurence Houghton on Sonshine FM.
Who is Sports Plus for?
Sports Plus is for young people (School years 7 to 12) passionate about improving in their sport and is the perfect way to explore the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian sports player.
Sports Plus is for young people who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. There is over five hours of sport a day and so we want to ensure that young people have the stamina to meet the demands of the week, enabling them to progress in their sport. Typically the young person will choose their main sport to be coached in but don't worry there will be opportunities to try new sports. If a young person does not play regularly in a club or team we will contact the parent/guardian to discuss whether Sports Plus is a suitable camp for the young person and may request a reference from a coach/PE teacher to support the booking. If a young person applies who does not play sport regularly or only at a recreational level we will contact the parent/guardian to discuss whether Sports Plus is a suitable camp for them.

What Sports are on offer?
Athletes chose a main sport to be coached in for the week. First sports on offer are: Aussie rules footy, rugby, triathlon, soccer, basketball, netball, tennis, hockey and cricket. It's important that you select a sport that you regularly compete in. You will need to bring your own equipment for your sport. You can read more about our quality coaches here.
What is the cost?
The cost for Sports Plus Perth 2020 is $525 - $100 deposit is required to confirm your spot. If you are sending more than one child from your family there is a discount price of $475. Please note that these costs are very reasonable for a fully residential, fully catered, sports coaching camp. Unlike many sports coaching camps our leaders and coaches actually pay to come to Sports Plus to help keep the costs down for young athletes.
Please note that these prices are very comparable to other high performance coaching camps. Sports Plus is approx. $100 a day including accommodation and full catering. Other coaching camps are typically equivalent to $110 to $250 per day and don't always include food or accommodation
