1 review for Nordic4Teens (Y7 – Y13)

  1. Rhiannon Dunnejones

    My daughter joined this group when she was 14 years old as she needed to do a sport for her Bronze DofE. Not knowing anyone, and feeling a little apprehensive Katie suggested a trial session. My daughter came back full of enthusiasm and joined the next week. She loves the weekly meet ups where she gets to develop new friendships and time off from her screen. All the teachers at Nordic4 are professional. Their warmth and enthusiasm of the sport and the youths they teach emanates.
