Class4Kids - we are a free listing service for people that run kids activities. Our website launched in April and we have had an overwhelming response; we have over 7500 classes on our website today, spread out across 2500 clubs.
We are a group of sports coaches and parents ourselves and we care about children living an active life and trying out new experiences. We know that trying to encourage the next generation into participating is important for any governing body, so we’re here to help!
We know there are lots of swimming clubs and centres throughout the country and it would be great to work with them to promote their respective clubs. It’s entirely free for the clubs to list, all they need to do is go on to the site and then list their activity and classes.
You can promote your club for free and get even more children attending your activities.
The hits on our website are increasing massively month on month. In June we had 22,000 hits, rising to 71,000 in August. We are still growing rapidly and are on-course to double user numbers again in September. An average of 10-15 new clubs add onto our site each day. Our ongoing work on search engine optimisation is really starting to pay off as well; we regularly rank on Google's first page for searches on kids activities, often near the top.
This is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with your clubs and promote them for free. We would love you to get involved. If this isn’t something that you would deal with I would appreciate it if you could forward it on to the relevant person/department.
