What we offer
National Centre Inverclyde has been open for more than 30 years, welcoming world stage athletes alongside our community members and school and education groups.
We also offer residential trips throughout the year, enquire for more details.</p
What makes us a great choice?
Our facilities are for everyone, the centre was built with inclusivity in mind. Everyone can train together and stay together during your visit. We are the first in the UK to achieve this standard. Our coaching team are always on hand to adapt their sessions and we work together to ensure every group gets a fantastic experience.
Group Sizes Catered For
We can cater for up to 120 children on a trip at any one time
Materials, Resources & Information Provided
Generally for day visits we do not provide work sheets but on residential visit all children fill in log books to record their trip and what they have improved on throughout. We always welcome feedback at the end of the day through feedback forms.
Photography, Filming & Audio Restrictions
Yes, they are able to do this anywhere in the centre and we have high speed wifi. However we would ask that children are monitored by their teachers and are not using mobile phones throughout sessions. We ask that preferably children do not have technology of this type with them but if they do then it does not prove a problem for us!
Risk Assessment Details
We are able to provide risk assessments to groups that require them, we have these arranged prior to any visit that takes place.
Education Officer Information
Please contact our Sports Programme Manager on 01475 674 666 to book.
There is also more information on our website: www.nationalcentreinverclyde.org.uk
Our day visits costs £16 per child and teachers go free. This includes 4 hours of coaching and lunch.
We ask that children come prepared to play sport – so PE clothing is fine. We also have outdoor facilities so arrive prepared to be outside (weather permitting).
First Aid Information
We have qualified first-aiders on site at all times.
We have a cafe and dining hall. Our dining hall is where the group will eat their main meal with us.
Our cafe is payable and we also have vending machines.
We also have merchandise available to purchase.
We would say no more than £10 per child as spending money but we usually allow schools to decide whether or not children are able to bring money with them.
Accessibility & Disabled Facilities
We are an inclusive centre and were built with this in mind.
Our accommodation is more than current DDA standard compliant and we have 4 extra large lifts and lip and step free entrances and exits to sports facilities.
We also have numerous disabled toilet facilities with extra wide doors and hoists available for those with further mobility needs.
We are able to tailor our sessions to those with disabilities and we also offer disability sport activities where requested.
Opening Hours & Information
We are open 7 days a week. Our opening hours are between 9am and 10pm every day.
