Sports Plus is a week of specialist sports coaching and team competitions for young people who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. Sports Plus is the perfect way for young people to improve in their sport, while exploring more about the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian sports player.

Over 400 Coaches, Team Leaders, Support Staff and Medical Staff are needed to enable Sports Plus to happen. Leaders must first and foremost have a passion to follow Jesus and be willing to serve God, the gospel, the young people and each other in one of these roles.
