arrowTHE TEAM

Our team is dedicated to improving physical activity levels and continues to enhance our reputation for bringing reliability, affordability and sustainability to Lancashire schools.

Over the summer, Pro Sport Coaching expanded its work force significantly following a merger with Sweeney’s Multi Sports. Adam and Damian (former owner of Sweeney’s Multi Sports), long time friends and previous coaching colleagues, decided to pool their resources and join together to bring a stronger offering from Pro Sport Coaching. Damian brings great coaching and management experience to the Director partnership and shares Adam’s vision of providing high quality coaching to children throughout Lancashire. Expect to see exciting changes from our ambitious directors as they work to bring new and exciting initiatives to schools and continue to keep children active and engaged. Let us introduce you to our new team…
