Welcome to Técnica!

Our highly qualified and professional staff deliver valuable in- and out of- school activities that are all specifically designed to meet the needs of everyone that we come into contact with.


Our vision is simple. By working in connection with schools, local organisations and clubs, we want to build a development first project that works inclusively to educate all of our participants, regardless of their background or ability. We aim to provide further participation opportunities, introduce new and exciting sports/games to young people and educate everyone of the benefits that physical activity can bring.


Our ethos is to identify existing or new participants who want to enhance their sporting education. We wish to develop knowledge, confidence and creativity whilst ensuring we inspire all who experience Técnica to love sports participation and achieve their potential.
