We would be happy to offer parents a free trial at one of our classes.  This would be subject to the class having spaces available.

Our classes are full of fun and are structured play sessions to take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way building on their motor skills, agility and balance and teaching them how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. Our classes are £7.75 per class and are booked in 6 or 7 week terms.
