Come and join our experienced coaches for a day of exciting activities. We believe that there is a sport and activity for everyone. At our Multi Sports days, young people can expect to get to try a mixture of traditional and non-traditional sports from Tennis to American Football with some wacky games and competitions thrown in for good measure.

Young people will need to dress appropriately for both indoor and outdoor sports, we would also advise a change of clothing in case of bad weather. Young people will also need a packed lunch, and plenty to drink (fruit juice or water please, no sports drinks). A healthy morning snack will be provided.
