The first ten years of a child’s life are game-changing in creating a lifelong commitment to physical activity. The case for promoting and encouraging a lifestyle that includes physical activity is unquestionable, and as a nation, the steady decline of an active lifestyle in our young people is inexcusable. Clearly, everyone has a role to play; schools, parents, communities, government and companies like ourselves; it’s one we are committed to and take very seriously.

“Since signing up to the SUPERCOACH Programme our school has been supported in creating a clear focus for developing a sports programme which will impact on the sporting and academic successes of all the children, regardless of ability.”
“Have tried various other holiday clubs for my two boys before and they have absolutely hated them all. Don’t know what these guys are doing differently, but no complaints at all from my boys this summer. They have got stuck in and tried lots of new sports and have come home worn out each afternoon! Thanks!”
“Progressive Sports led a very successful competition day at Hob Hill Primary. As well as them organising an enjoyable day of athletics for the children, they also brought two athletes, who inspired the children – and staff! Daniel Caines provided awe and wonder to the children, sharing his experiences as a medal winning international athlete, while Robbie Gleeson showed that children how an aspiring young sportsman can progress in his field. The event was really well run, great fun, and is what we have come to expect from the PS coaches.”
“Thank you, Progressive Sports and John, for coaching my son’s 6th birthday party, Harry and his friends had an amazing time and the hall looked amazing. Thank you, John, for all your hard work looking after 22 crazy boys and keeping them well entertained and under control. Highly recommend!”
