Recreation & sport for schools

We're experts at kid's sports

We have a wide range of fun school sports which we can deliver at your school or in our centres. We partner with you to deliver your curriculum needs in a way the teachers, parents and kids all love.

We can tailor our programme to offer a wide range of gymnastics, sports and dance from fun to competitive. Speak to your local YMCA and find out how we can work with your school.

Our Programmes are

  • Interactive and fun
  • All about encouraging active participation
  • Run by qualified and trained staff
