Click here to see our clubs. We have new clubs on offer including a Karate Club Run by 3rd Dan Will Homer.  
We have some fantastic clubs running this half term but unfortunately not many children have signed up for them.  If we only have one child in a sports club it makes it very difficult to provide the experience of matches, positions, game rules etc.  
Please help us to provide these clubs by encouraging your child/ren to attend. We really want to give your children a good sporting experience and positively influence their development!! 
Thank you.
