The new 10-week Indoor Hockey Programme for all ages (5-10 & 11+) is commencing in term 3, and Indoor Soccer will hopefully be added in term 4 – very exciting! Thank you for all your wonderful feedback!

Please read Mahalia’s email and be sure you set up a profile for your family for easier booking now and in the future.

We do ask that you take a moment to create an account with Aimy Plus and register yourself and your family.
