Academy: Sports Academy
Leader: Mr. J Ugarte
Your profile It is my belief that two characteristics synonymous with success, not just in sport but for life, include dedication and professionalism. Here at Buttershaw, we have an array of sporting talent and I am looking to develop and nurture.

I have experience of coaching in a variety of sports, with success at amateur level. I was fortunate enough to obtain my coaching qualifications at a young age, which is something I am keen to offer our current Sports Academy pupils.

My aspirations developed when I first enrolled in my Community Sports Leadership Award, which is something new we can offer our pupils this year.

‘Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard!’

Weekly provisions All activities will be running every other week on Thursday evenings. These will include climbing training and participation in the Community Sports Leadership Award (Level 2).
