1st Step Sports Ltd is a growing sports coaching company with an exceptional reputation for providing high quality sports coaching and fantastic value for money; whether its delivering National Curriculum PE lessons and extra-curricular sessions in schools or our fantastic school holiday fun days.
The company was set up in 2005 by Paul Jones (PJ) to help support schools and local children by delivering quality, safe and affordable sports coaching. Paul took the company to new heights in 2013 by franchising the 1st Step Sports brand and in 2015 the company was accredited to the British Franchise Association as an Associate Member, further enhancing the companies reputation as an ethical franchisor and securing our credentials as a "good" franchise company.
All staff are fully qualified by the relevant national governing bodies and every member of staff attends safeguarding children workshops and first-aid courses as well as being CRB checked every 2 years.
1st Step Sports prides itself on being a local company and regardless of which area we deliver our services in, we always look to form strong links with local councils and organisations. A list of companies and organisations we work with can be found in the company services page.
We are very aware of the increasing obesity levels in children and believe in trying to provide quality, safe sports coaching to help combat this national problem. All our services are tailored for boys and girls of every ability and we try to make every session and camp as fun and relaxed as possible, encouraging the children to express themselves and develop through sport and recreational activites.
