High level support in mentoring and coach performance education

Develop your skills as a coach with our coach education workshops, which are built around a constructed programme to suit your performance requirements.

You can now supplement your existing coaching qualifications with real in-depth specific knowledge and understanding of your sport, alongside coaches who have delivered at the pinnacle of world and Olympic level.

Our team have been travelling the UK to deliver coach education seminars and workshops to county, regional and club groups of coaches.

"On behalf of the coaches and members of Activ Sports, I'd like to thank you for visiting our club on Saturday. The members had a great time and I'm sure we will be hearing about it all week! As coaches, you have opened our minds and motivated us to take Activ Sports further and we really appreciate the help you have given us so far."

Steve Kiernan, Activ Sports Manager
