How To Join

Your child can join the programme at any time during the season. Your child either attends a trial day and will be offered a place, be hand selected from one of our coaches who may be watching your child's grassroots fixture or hand selected from one of our many after school clubs, holiday courses or weekend classes. We can also now book in trials for your child even if open trial sessions are not running - Contact us to find out more.
