About Our 3 Centres
You can do Firm Foundations in stunning Shropshire countryside, over beautiful lake views or in a bustling vibrant sports centre. Each of our centres has its own flavour, and each its own community of staff and trainees:
- Whitemoor Lakes is our brand new watersports centre in Staffordshire.
- Pioneer Centre is our outdoor centre set near the Wyre Forest in Shropshire.
- Benham Sports Arena is a busy indoor sports centre in Northamptonshire, great for those pursuing a career in Leisure Management.
We offer various qualifications across our three centres, so for a detailed breakdown please see their Firm Foundations page. You can earn recognised qualifications from the British Canoe Union, British Fencing Association and many more awards ranging from watersports to climbing, archery to first aid. On top of this you will also receive centre-specific training.
“To equip his people for the works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”
