The courses we offer:

Boxing  (BTEC Level 2)

We offer a Boxing Fitness Programme that works around classroom-based teaching sessions, providing learners with an opportunity to study in an environment that encourages success and enjoyment, whilst fulfilling their potential in a practical, yet education-tailored setting.

 

Futsal 

Futsal is an exciting, fast paced small sided football game, the game places large emphasis on technical skill and ability in situations of high pressure, and is subsequently an excellent breeding ground for football competencies that can be translated into the 11-a side format of the game.
