Sessions are planned with our Sports Ambassadors every half term.
Pupils can take part in sessions with the aim to see what it takes to be an elite performer, training methods and look at the psychological traits needed to be an elite performer. Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in sessions with the Sports Ambassadors as the coach.
Evening sessions are held for parents to attend, meeting with ambassadors and learning about their experience of coaching, how to support young performers, as well as, how to cope with studies and playing at an elite level.
