Keith decided to form the academy after talking to local youth talent Bradley Brooks. It came to his attention that there was no real opportunities in the area for youths to progress in the sport. Keith wanted to change this and create a legacy for youth darts.
In the past Keith has played in local leagues and has won numerous cups in the Accrington and District League.
Keith has a vast amount of experience of working with youths having managed junior football clubs for over 10 years and working in children's homes in the North West for nearly 3 years. Keith also has a Bsc Hons Degree in Sports Coaching and Performance and has the Level 1 JDC International Coaching Certificate.
