We were founded in 2012 with one coach and one school and since that point we have grown and grown. We now have a team of 3 full time staff and have recently seen our founding coach graduate out of the business in their own company.
In the beginning there was only one coach, volunteering in one school for one hour a week.
In September 2012 we started. Our first contract getting children active, playing football, arrived
By February 2013 we were working in 3 schools with 2 coaches and running our first holiday camp .
Suddenly we were getting calls from everywhere. Our vision for more sport was taking hold.
