Our Values

Legend Kids is all about keeping kids active, positive and motivated. We want to help kids develop a love for physical activity, fitness and sport and an enthusiasm for adventure and new experiences. Our hope is that this will set them up for life, so they won’t ever be content with staying on the sidelines or in their armchairs watching other people making the most of life.

We’re committed to inspiring Nelson kids to embark on a life-long love of sport and outdoor recreation. We’re passionate about keeping kids off couches! We run children’s adventure courses, in-school sports initiatives and OSCAR after-school and holiday programmes.
