Kate Martin - Sports Tour Adviser

Kate is one of our experienced Sports Tour Advisers and knows our destinations and local suppliers extremely well, having previously worked as one of our Itinerary Coordinators. A big sports fan, Kate is also a keen traveller, who has had many memorable, thought-provoking and educational travel moments. She joined Halsbury Sport to help young people to enjoy similar memories of their own. Her substantial experience in educational and sports travel means that Kate is ideally placed to advise you on your next sports tour and ensure that your students enjoy a sporting experience that inspires them.

What do you enjoy about working in sports travel?

I love being part of a company that provides people and groups with lasting memories and unforgettable experiences that they may not otherwise have had access to.

Jack West - Itinerary Coordinator

Sport is the big passion of Jack’s life and he’s played and coached football in many different countries around the world. After spending his childhood at Nottingham Forest FC’S elite academy, Jack moved to the USA to pursue a college degree and play college soccer. After completing both his bachelor and master’s degrees, he then went on to spend four years as Executive Director at a large sports organisation in America, volunteered on the North Dakota Soccer Board as the Director of the Olympic Development Program, and worked as Head Coach for the boys and girls soccer programs at a school in North Dakota. All this means he’s exceptionally well placed to help you craft your perfect school sports tour.

What inspired you to want to work in the school sports travel industry?

I believe in a hands-on approach to learning. Travelling gives students and athletes a chance to experience new and different life lessons. I enjoy creating sports tours that will give individuals and groups memories to last a lifetime.

Jessica Woodhall - Itinerary Coordinator

Once you’ve booked your school sports tour, you may very well speak to Jessica, who will work closely with you on the finer details of your itinerary. She’ll ensure that everything is in place to ensure that your tour runs smoothly. Jessica has always loved playing sports and thrives on being part of a team. Amongst some of her finest sporting achievements include playing cricket for Nottinghamshire Women’s U15s and she currently plays hockey for her local club, here in Nottingham. Jessica even won the small stunt competition at the British Cheerleading Awards in 2013!

Why did you choose a career in school sports travel?

I became interested in youth sports travel in the summer of 2014, when I travelled to Connecticut in the USA, to work as a camp counsellor mentoring 16 year olds in several sporting and general life skills.
