Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA)

We’re a longstanding supporter of NASSA a charity set up for young people in the London Borough of Newham and the surrounding areas.  NASSA’s goals are to build ambitious, successful and responsible young adults and provide a real alternative to engaging in anti-social behaviour.

NASSA coaches have experience in Europe and the USA and are all qualified in their specialised fields. The sports sessions are open to boys and girls from the ages of eight upwards.  There are also extra-curricular school training clubs, a Saturday Academy, a High Flyers Developmental Programme, a volunteer programme, opportunities to gain coaching qualifications and NVQs, a summer scheme, holiday clubs and outreach work in local parks.
