"for every child's sporting needs"

Latest News & Updates

Woody’s Sports Academy Mission Statement is to deliver leading multi-sport provision to the community. In order to encourage children of all abilities to develop and express themselves in an inclusive environment.

Founder - Paul Wood

Today founder Paul Wood is better known for his exploits as part of the Social Media duo ‘Woody & Kleiny’, who have amassed a following of over 25m people across all platforms.

However, Paul’s passion for empowering children of all abilities through sport remains undiminished.  Under Paul’s guidance the WSA team have successfully run ‘after school and breakfast clubs’, ‘holiday camps’, ‘lunchtime sessions’ and ‘PE lessons’ since it was formed over 2 decades ago in 2001.  In doing so WSA have acquired an outstanding reputation and boast a wealth of experience.


Paul accredits the coaching qualifications and training he acquired at Arsenal Football Club, along with his experience playing for Watford FC in providing him with essential life skills.  The creation of WSA was born out of Paul’s belief that high level coaching should NOT just be exclusive to those that excel and should be accessible to all children regardless of their ability.  

Head of Coaching - Nick Davis​

Nick is a vastly experienced coach and has been part of the WSA family since its inception.  He also takes a keen interest in grassroots football having run a number of youth football teams down the years.
