About Us

Becky and Corrie currently work in sports development in the West of Scotland. Within their role they manage coaches and volunteers, deliver physical activity training courses and develop programmes.

From their experience within the Sport and Physical Activity industry and from working with schools they identified the decline in children's basic physical skill levels required to participate in physical activity and sport. This decline results in high drop out rates of participation in sport which is linked to the alarming childhood obesity rates in Scotland today. This inspired them to create Fun Skills Academy.
