During your child’s first week with Play Sports Academy our expert coaches will observe and assess your child’s individual human and game characteristics to ensure they are placed in a group that will give them the correct challenge point to help them maximise their development. Play Sports Academy believes wholly in long-term child/player development to ensure they fall in love with the sport whilst learning key skills along the way.
