What is the point of the Minis' Tour?


The tour is a great way to bind our minis squads together, strengthen friendships, strengthen the club ethos and ultimately have a great weekend of family fun. It’s a wonderful end to the season that everyone, of all ages, enjoys. It’s also a great way of raising money for the club – for the development of the minis and junior sections, and the infrastructure around them. Helping to keep Beccs as one of the best drilled and most admired clubs in Kent!

What is “Beccs Got Talent”?


Every year, each age group takes to the stage to perform a dance number in the style of
“Britain’s Got Talent”. How seriously you take it is up to you. Some age groups have been
known to get choreographers etc. At the end, the judges and the age group coaches will
vote for the best act. The winners will get fame, glory, and a spot on Michael MacIntyre’s
Big Show. Probably.


Costumes and props are pretty much mandatory – anyone not dressing up will be fined on
the spot.


Do we have to take part in the sports morning?


No. But if you don’t you will be tarred, feathered and chained to a kids slot machine for the
rest of the day, then forced to do a solo dance routine as an opener to the evening’s
entertainment.
