WE DEFINE 
Professional TRAINING

It is important to us that everyone who attends our studio sees themselves or their child making progress. As such, we keep our class sizes small and our ratio of coaches to athletes high. 

 

All of our coaches are enhanced DBS checked, reference checked and qualified with a minimum of two years' experience in their field as a coach or as an athlete, this includes our volunteers. 

Safeguarding is a high priority at Empire and as such we have a designated safeguarding lead and a first aider on site at all times.
