Create Future Sports Stars!

MUGA - Create Future Sports Stars!

Global sporting events such as the World Cup and Wimbledon always hope to inspire the young sportsmen and women of the future. Success in a sport comes through practice and dedication, as well as through talent.  But where would the top sports stars be today if they had never had the chance to even try their sport?

Here at Schoolscapes, we believe that all children should have the chance to engage in different sports, so they can discover which they enjoy, which they are good at and which they’d like to focus on into the future.
