Top five concerns about kids during school holidays: 

  1. No exercise
  2. No mental and social stimulation
  3. Too much tech
  4. No personal development

At Tom’s little Rhino’s Summer Camp, parents or guardians can find a place for their children aged 6-12 to not only play and have fun, but to learn, socialise, and develop in a mental and physical capacity.

My name is Tom Shuttleworth, and for the past 22 years I have accumulated both a love for sports and extensive experience in the field of coaching and rugby. In recent years I have worked as a performance analyst for rugby clubs such as England Rugby, Ireland Sevens, London Irish, and Wasps Academy, as well as coaching ages 2-18+ for the past 13 years (one of which was International Professional Football Player for England and Leicester City, Ben Chillwell, who was 14 at the time).

My experience working with children, along with my analytic approach to sports, is perfect for giving kids a perfect balance between fun and technical development in sport. Other experience and qualifications include:

  • RFU badges level 1 and 2 in coaching
  • Health and safety in concussion
  • Fitness instructor level 2
  • Performance analyst at Ealing Trailfinders
  • Performance analyst and coaching at Sussex County
  • Talent acquisition for Ireland
  • BA degree in Sports Coaching and Events Management
  • And more…

The core focus for Tom’s Little Rhinos summer camp is to combine professional sports coaching whilst providing children with entertainment and a platform to make new friends. The summer camp is a safe environment, creating a space for children to develop naturally through sports and other activities. Using my PDER strategy, the children will learn different skills while exploring their creativity with a fluid free-play approach. Our activities include:

  • Touch Rugby
  • Football
  • Karate
  • Kickboxing
  • Cricket
  • Hockey
  • Tennis
  • Drama
  • Catching and throwing games
  • Individual challenges
  • Team challenges
  • Meditation strategies
  • Mindfulness strategies
  • Learning strategies
  • Water Fun!

Over the summer period, Tom’s little Rhino’s offers six hours of fun-packed activities, from 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday. Parents or guardians have the choice of daily or weekly sign ups.
