The sessions taught the athletes how to take ownership of their talents by learning about the bigger picture of playing sports.

Sam and Sophie had the young athletes making use of their space at home with sock challenges and Kahoot Quizes to test knowledge retention.

The programme concluded with a morning full of physical activity with a focus on physiology at Walton Academy.
