Encouraging the next generation of sports stars
Founded in 2021, ABC Sports Stars is a unique youth sports club, here to help children of all ages get active and have fun outdoors. Based in Lewisham we work with schools, nurseries and activity centres throughout the South London area.
All members of our team are fully DBS checked, and committed to the safety of everyone who takes part. We hold qualifications in PE (Level 3) and youth football (Level 2 Youth Module, FA Football).
At ABC Sports Stars, we strive to provide a unique learning structure that allows children to have fun. Our main philosophy is ABC: Agility, Balance, and Coordination. We aim to create sports stars of the future, whilst incorporating the EYFS guidelines in all of our sessions.
We also utilise specific topics each month, for children to learn and develop a new skill. Combined with our coaching methods we feel the children will not only benefit physically, but also mentally.
