Woody's Sports Academy runs in local schools throughout the community and is a multi-sports provision. We provide a variety of sports to children of all abilities and encourage exercise, development and inclusion. We create a stimulating, fun and safe environment to allow children to express themselves, gain confidence and new skills. All staff are fully vetted, insured, qualified and first aid trained; some have even undergone courses in mentoring and also gained qualifications in class/teacher assistance.
