About your mentors
Zahid Hossain
An award-winning community Sports Academy
WHO WE ARE Pro Touch SA is a registered Community interest Company born out of a desire to use the power of sport to encourage young Londoners unleash their potential. Established in 2006, Pro Touch SA delivers structured community sports and elite football programmes in over 11 London boroughs to young people aged 4-25 and as well as engaging with their families who require support and guidance. We started as a soccer academy offering opportunities to gifted and talented footballers but have evolved to providing healthy active lifestyle opportunities to young people, with everything from fitness to fencing and more. With rising cuts and closure to services, we see it as a responsibility to provide much-needed services around community, youth, and sports to engage with hard-to-reach children and young people in inner-city London. Alongside our community projects, we also run an Elite football academy, run by qualified coaches who have helped develop, mentor and guide over 40 plus young "gifted and talented" athletes aged between 9-25 years old signing schoolboy, scholarship, or professional contracts within professional football clubs in England. As a not-for-profit organisation, we re-invest all profit back into the programmes we operate across London.

Learning aims
Aim 1
Self-esteem and confidence Activity camps provide children with the chance to explore various activities within an enjoyable and stress-free setting, leading to the potential discovery of hidden talents or abilities that can significantly enhance their self-esteem. Moreover, these camps help children develop a sense of confidence when confronting unfamiliar situations, reducing their apprehension towards change as they grow older. Our activity camps create an atmosphere of healthy competition, enabling children to cultivate resilience, a valuable attribute that will assist them in overcoming future challenges with greater ease. Undoubtedly, fostering these skills during their formative years will prove beneficial in preparing them for life's inevitable trials and obstacles.
Aim 3
New hobbies and experiences Kids camps present an exciting array of fresh hobbies and experiences for children to explore. At Pro Touch SA, our diverse range of activities encompasses everything from swimming and science to arts and crafts. With such a rich selection of options available, children have an excellent opportunity to discover activities they truly enjoy, and who knows, they might even ignite a passion for a new hobby that could last a lifetime.
Aim 5
Exercise In today's digital age, children have a plethora of sedentary entertainment options available to them. However, we are well aware that maintaining an active lifestyle can significantly benefit their long-term mental and physical well-being. That's precisely why activity camps like Barracudas play a vital role in instilling a lifelong habit of being active among all children. At our school holiday camps, a variety of active games and activities are always on offer, and the best part is that your child doesn't need to be sporty to enjoy them. It's all about having fun, and we ensure that each child can participate in a way that feels comfortable to them, making exercise an enjoyable experience rather than a chore. As a parent, you'll be pleased to know that this increased physical activity will have additional benefits. With an active day at camp, your child is more likely to have a good night's sleep, making life easier for both them and you. At Barracudas, we emphasize the importance of staying active and having fun, creating an environment that nurtures both physical and mental well-being.
Aim 2
Social skills Are honed through the shared experiences at activity camps, leading to the establishment of enduring friendships among many children. Additionally, these camps offer an opportunity for your child to interact with a diverse group of individuals beyond their usual school circle, which plays a pivotal role in bolstering their self-assurance when meeting new people. Acquiring the ability to mix and engage with different individuals is a crucial life skill that is often easier to develop during one's younger years. Even if your child tends to be reserved or shy, there's no need to hesitate about sending them to an activity camp. We have witnessed children of all personality types thoroughly enjoying their time with us. Our dedicated staff understand and appreciate the uniqueness of each child, ensuring that every effort is made to ensure your child feels welcome and settles in comfortably.
Aim 4
Outdoors When weather permits, there's nothing quite like venturing outdoors, as it brings with it a multitude of mental and physical health benefits. Surprisingly, research suggests that the increase in allergies among children may partially result from a lack of contact with nature. For those residing in urban areas, activity camps provide a rare opportunity to reconnect with the natural world. Nature possesses the remarkable ability to ignite children's innate curiosity, unveiling the wonders of the world before their eyes. They need not embark on a grand expedition akin to David Attenborough's to be enthralled by the natural world. Even simple encounters with little creatures on a nature trail can evoke a sense of adventure and excitement when experienced at a young age.
Aim 6
Summer of fun At Pro Touch SA, our main goal is to create a summer filled with incredible fun, leaving children eagerly anticipating their next visit. With a focus on catering to children's needs and desires, our holiday camps are thoughtfully designed, from the exciting range of activities to the top-notch facilities and our dedicated and passionate staff. Nothing is left to chance. Witnessing children embrace new activities, forge friendships, acquire valuable skills, and enhance their confidence during their time with us brings us immense joy. We take pride in providing a memorable and enriching experience for children during their school holidays.
