Your school multisport tour to York will leave your students with a greater enthusiasm for their sport, greater confidence in their skills and a stronger bond as a team.

We can arrange friendly fixtures against local opposition of a suitable standard for a number of sports, including football, netball, rugby, cricket and hockey. And before your fixtures, we’ll arrange for you to enjoy a self-led training session at a local venue, to make sure you’re fully prepared.

When you’re not on the pitch, court or field, there’s plenty of exciting activities and excursions in and around York. One of our favourites is the walking tour of York’s most haunted places – and there are lots of them, thanks to the city’s long history! You can learn more about the city’s history at Jorvik Viking Museum, or York Castle Museum. And make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to visit York Minster, one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals.
