We have a number of different Squads at SGA, each following different pathways through the BG system.
We endeavour to fulfil each individual child's needs and believe in keeping training hours low to allow children the freedom to enjoy the fun things in life, sleepovers, parties, holidays and other sports. We understand the importance of education and the need for rest periods which is why we allow our squads precious time off during half terms and summer holidays.
