About Sports Stars

At all of our Saturday Stars groups children are supported to progress towards their own personal goals within 5 areas: relationships, social skills, independence, confidence and mental health/wellbeing. At the end of each term children receive a star certificate to celebrate their acheivements.

At Sports Stars children improve their fitness, co-ordination and teamwork through a range of inclusive sports and active games.

Sports Stars is split into two sub-groups:

Stretching Stars: 10am – 11am

Stretching Stars is an introduction to being active and participating in team games for children who benefit from more support.

Squad Stars: 11:15am – 12:15pm

Squad Stars suits children who already enjoy being active and taking part in team sports and games.
