Our Sports Development Team have used R & D to help deliver a wide range of successful events and sports coaching courses over the last 18 months and we will be continuing to work with them,
on a number of new initiatives, in the future.

R&D Coaching have provided out of school sessions at our school for the last six years. They offer a wide variety of sessions including football; dodgeball; and hockey. The coaches are reliable, approachable, well organised, and deliver sessions in a fun but professional manner. They have worked in school taking PE lessons across the key stages from nursery to year 6. All of the children show great enthusiasm in the sessions and have great relationships with the coaches. All of the sessions are challenging and take account of all children’s abilities; the coaches total commitment to the children is evident in the progress made by all the children.
Having worked with R&D coaching for over ten years now, I can only praise their professional and responsible approach. They have consistently provided an excellent service to both my current and previous schools. We have the R&D coaches in school on almost a daily basis to cover both curriculum and before and after school clubs. The clubs are charged at a very reasonable rate and are always extremely popular with the children. One child who previously did not take part in any sports clubs told me that he now loves Tag Rugby and thinks that Dan is really fantastic! A great testimonial from a child!
Children have fun in their learning and development, and look forward eagerly to being active, engaged and challenged. They thoroughly enjoy taking part in team games and individual challenges and benefit from personalised, fun and exciting sporting activities covering a range of games and PE themes.
The coaches are extremely reliable, always arriving early in time to prepare, and not leaving until all of the children are safely returned to their parents or teachers. The professional and friendly way that the coaches engage with school based staff is great! I have no hesitation in recommending R&D Coaching and will continue to work with them into the future.
R&D coaches have been providing curriculum games lessons, after-schools, and holiday club activites for more than ten years. The coaching is of an extremely high standard and our children find the sessions challenging, but great fun. The children benefit from cricket, football, multi-activity, tag-rugby, and dodgeball. R&D provides an excellent, professional service and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other schools.

R&D Coaching provided an excellent range of activities, professionally delivered in order to ensure my 7 year old and a huge selection of friends enjoyed the best football party ever! The medals awarded at the end were a fantastic touch. We will most definitely be arranging more in the future. One very happy mum and son!
R&D's approach to coaching is absolutley first class. The boys love going, love the sessions, and love the coaches. Learning through complete enjoyment is the best way to learn. Well done guys, and I think JB will still want to come when he's 24.
