Meet our inspiring Red Tops

Our coaching staff are amazing individuals, each with their own unique background in sports or childcare. We call them Red Tops because of their iconic red uniforms –  you can’t miss them in a crowd! Red Tops get selected by our in-house recruitment team for their outgoing and energetic personalities, dedication to child development and ability to inspire children. We call this magic formula The Kings Factor.

Feefo Parent Reviews

Every day my son had an amazing time. He tried new sports, had loads of fun and made new friends. The Red Tops were amazing and make such a difference. I’ll take him every year; he loves it!

Arron

Friendly, kind and enthusiastic coaches. My daughter had a fabulous time, in fact, we extended the hours as she kept telling me to go away again at the end of the day!

Emily

My daughter waits at the door to get to Kings Camps in the morning, she loves going, makes lots of new friends and is happily exhausted at the end of each day.
