The LSC Schools BMX Competition was a huge success!

We had our Schools BMX Competition at the start of February, 20 pupils from 4 schools attended for a brilliant afternoon of coaching and competition.

Our Schools Competitions happen each half term, this time we headed to the HSBC National Cycling Centre to hit their BMX track!

 

 

We are delighted to announce that we'll be back delivering our brilliant Holiday Courses at the Life Leisure facilities at Bramhall & Priestnall Recreation Centres!

 

 

This half term we built on the success of last year and hosted another Badminton Schools Competition at the EnergyBox at Levenshulme High School. We had teams from Greenbank Preparatory (Cheadle Hulme), Cheetwood CP (Cheetham), St James’ (Rusholme) and St Ambrose (Chorlton).

We had our FC & TSC Social Fundraiser on Saturday!

Everyone in attendance had a great time enjoying the races, chatting and watching the kids enjoy themselves.

With your help we raised £580!!

 

Always striving to improve & continuing to grow, Little Sports Coaching has now launched in Leeds, meet our new area manager Matt!

This Wednesday the 10th of October we held our 4th annual Schools Football Competition, at The Armitage Centre Fallowfield. It was brilliantly attended with 12 teams from 8 different schools competing. Travelling from Dukinfield, Marple, Altrincham, Oldham as well as Longsight, Chorlton on Medlock, Didsbury & Levenshulme.

 

We’re always striving to improve here at Little Sports Coaching, whether it be our apprentices’ gaining qualifications whilst working, or our head coaches finding new and improved ways to develop children in all sports. The training doesn’t stop there, as our CEO, Craig Brennan, has recently completed The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme.

For many people, sporting activity can be a lifesaver. To what extent, is impossible to say but there is no doubt that playing or spectating can be more than simply an escape. It can prove to be beneficial to a person’s overall mental wellbeing.

Little Sports Coaching currently organises weekly Character Education Mentoring sessions within local primary schools across the North-West, with one of the aims being to support the mental well-being of young people.

Stamford Park were crowned the champions of the Little Sports Coaching Netball tournament at Levenshulme High School.

 

 

The typically Mancunian spring weather forced the tournament to be moved inside but that didn’t dampen the spirits of all those involved. The event, which was attended by 10 schools across Greater Manchester, was deemed a success by students and teachers alike.
