Our coaches all have a wealth of experience and over the past decade have travelled; learning, playing and coaching, internationally across the globe. They are willing to share their knowledge and experience with players giving them a taste of what lies ahead within their sporting future.
Our ethos across all sports is to deliver the right messages in a fun and engaging environment. Providing players with the chance to learn about themselves whilst enjoying their own personal sporting journey.
What can I say both my children their friends, had an absolute fantastic time at your camp. They were buzzing when they came back but also shattered - just what they needed! They were talking about all the skills they had done - it was lovely to hear and see them practicing in the garden.
My daughter learnt new skills and improved others and at the same time made new friends.
She commented on how encouraging and pleasant the coaches were which contributed to the enjoyment and fun of camp
