Meet The Team

Little Legends was established to give UAE children between the ages of 2.5 - 9 years an early opportunity to discover sports in a fun, welcoming and pressure-free environment.

 

Our core mission is to engage young children, help educate them in a sporting environment, while making sure they enjoy themselves at the same time. We believe sport is an irreplaceable medium in which to help develop children’s self-confidence and we aspire to provide them with a platform from which they can develop their own personal love for sport.
