Working in collaboration with the Community, unique programmes are available throughout the North West. Our football and multi-sport courses for children aged 4 – 11 years are great fun, helping children to build confidence and meet new friends.
We have a wide range of fun and inclusive multi-sports & football camps for boys and girls aged 4-11. SGI coaches hold industry recognised qualifications and valid DBS/CRB, First Aid and Child Protection certificates.
When SGI was founded in 2009 by former Professional Footballer and Japan National Side Assistant Manager, Stuart Gelling, the objective was to educate and support the next generation of Football & Sports Professionals.

SGI aim to offer exit routes to all of our learners across each unique programme we deliver, ranging from Apprenticeships to full-time employment in the U.K. & U.S.A!
