COACHING


We offer an extensive group coaching programme for both adults and juniors during the week and on a Saturday morning.  


Junior Coaching


Our group junior coaching programme is run by our Head Coach Chris Hull and supported by Sam Kingdon and Mel Hiscocks.  We run sessions for children aged 3 years to teens.

Work hard but have fun is our philosophy and we have found that this formula works well encouraging confidence and social skills as well as learning a life long sport.
