Amersham & Chorleywood Principal - Helen Girdler
,Helen is the director of MSG Leisure Ltd who are the company that sit at the top of the MultiSports Schools. Also being the Principal of the MultiSports Amersham & Chorleywood flagship school her days are busy ensuring continuity and high standards throughout all the schools and also being able to role out the best assistance through having hands on experience for the last 10 years. Helen was previously a mentor for Bucks Education, currently coaches sports degree students at Bucks New University in practical coaching and for the past 7 years has run extra curricular sports clubs at the ACS International Schools in Hillingdon and Cobham.
With the growing awareness of the benefits of sport for both physical and mental health, schools and parents are beginning to realise the need for children to increase the amount of exercise they get in a week.
Helen says "Providing extra curricular clubs and weekend schools such as MultiSports means that children have the opportunity to increase the amount of sport they do in a week as well as broaden their sporting experience but most importantly they are taught by professional coaches who have lots of experience coaching children of all physical abilities.I am in a very privileged position to see the development of our students and the benefit they get from the sessions. I often stand out on the field or in the sports hall and watch the students and as a parent myself I think if other parents could experience the joy I do from watching the children develop and see how much enjoyment the children have they would want their children to do this too. I welcome anyone to call and come up and take a look for yourself please don't hesitate to call. I will be more than happy to show you around"
MultiSports Coach - Joelle Bonfante BA (hons)
Joelle has returned to us this Autumn 2016 after going back to her home in Gibralter for a year after finishing her degree course at Bucks Uni. She is now back and as well as coaching for us she is at Brunel University doing a PGCE in Teaching.
Joelle is a lively member of the team and works very hard in channeling her enthusiasm into her sessions, which are always varied and packed with fun. She has a wealth of sport coaching as well as dance and cheerleading!
JOelle says "I love working at MultiSports Amersham & Chorleywood! The program is so varied and I really enjoy getting to know the students and see them improve and develop their skills. Sharing in their moments of success gives everyone such a good feeling. EVERY child should come to MultiSports!!"
MultiSports Coach - Daniel Eggleston BA (hons)
Daniel has a degree in Sports Coaching and a full time position coaching for the MK Dons. He has a broad background and came to us a year ago with lots of experience and plenty of new ideas. Daniel is a very attentive and caring coach and works hard to ensure his lesson plans are tailor made for each particular squad to ensure that all the students benefit from his sessions.
Daniel leans toward the team sports himself and says "So many skills for life can be learnt through team sports and by introducing new physical and fun activities all the time the students are constantly being challenged. The wide variety of sports we offer also helps keep them interested. 18 sports in a year - who could ever get bored with that!?"
Multisports Coach - Tom Bell
Tom is a relatively recent addition to the team and coaches in the main school. He has a passion for Basketball which is his coaching background and he comes to us from Bucks New University and is a sports coaching and development degree student with plenty of coaching experience and heaps of enthusiasm.
Tom Says "MultiSports is the only club I have come across that offers such a wide range of sports and team building to it's students. It really is a great program and I can see already how all 3 aspects help the children develop a rounded approach. The team building sessions are very exciting and challenging and often very amusing too!"
MultiSports Coach - Nicola Theis BSC(hons) MSC PHD
Nicola works across all the MultiSports schools, and her knowledge and experience including working with children who have cerebral palsy makes her a valued member of our coaching staff and she is a great asset to the MultiSports team.
She has attained her Doctorate and lectures full time at St Mary's University in London.
Nicola says " It is great to be able to offer such a great sports programme to children as young as 4. Whether your child is physical or not they still need to be taught how their bodies can move - but in a fun way. Parents teach their children how to tie shoe laces or hold a pen, but often it won't cross their mind to teach a child how to throw and catch a ball. At the MultiSports children learn so many skills for different sports in a very fun yet disciplined and physical environment. It is so lovely to watch their faces when they accomplish something new."
MultiSports Coach - Harriet Olliffe BSC(hons)
Harriet has coached at MultiSports for 5 yeas across several of our venues and is now both a Main School coach on Saturday mornings and the leading Little Sporties coach on Sunday mornings at Amersham & Chorleywood.
Harriet is passionate about sport and having played and benefitted from being in the county netball team for many years she combines her weekend coaching with a full time job for England Netball where her role is to ensure netball is made as accessible as possible in schools and communities.
Harriet says "Children learn so many invaluable skills through sport that are transferable to everyday life. I believe every child should have the opportunity to do this and the MultiSports club in Amersham & Chorleywood provides the perfect environment for this to occur."
MultiSports Coach - Little Sporties - Annie Hewitt
Annie coaches in the Little Sporties classes on a Saturday and her classes are always lots of fun and very energetic. She has a great rapport with the younger students and connects with them well enjoying running around herself and motivating them.

Annie is hard working, enthusiastic and fun! Her sessions are filled with enthralling themes including pirates and princesses, aliens and goblins and the imagination of the Little Sporties is actively encouraged along with the skills and drills of the sports. With 40% of our Little Sporties being girls we are delighted to have such a great role model for girls in sport coaching the classes.
