Coaching programmes are normally structured as 1 hour weekly sessions in blocks of 6 weeks as that fits in with the school curriculum. Where possible we aim to run two or more programmes at the same location concurrently to reduce travel and maximise coaching time. However, Prime Sports NW prides itself on our flexibility and we can tailor a programme to meet the needs of the establishment.
We provide coching in
Rugby (contact and non-contact)

4Rs – Mindfulness and Well Being through sport and classroom activity
As part of the initial discussions with a school or group we will clarify the targets and outcomes of those taking part and develop a programme accordingly. A school sports coaching programme would focus on curriculum targets, which in a Primary School, would perhaps take the pupils from a basic introduction to being able to play the sport as a team in a tournament. At a Sports Club targets may be to develop basic skills or focus on a sport specific skills.
Prime Sports NW provide sports coaching at schools, colleges, after-school clubs, holiday camps or sports clubs.
We are particularly keen to involve those with behaviour problems, physical disabilities or mental health issues.
BME Multi sport
The BME Multi-Sports package will focus of the particular needs of Black Minority Ethnic girls and introduce them to activity in a non-competitive manner with female coaches and under conditions that are appropriate.
Our coaches are very experienced in motivating young people, will make physical activity fun, and will challenge negative behaviours when necessary. We will work with you to determine expected outcomes before we start, and will begin with base-line assessments to determine abilities. We would also like to encourage teachers/ carers to develop their coaching skills alongside our staff as this develops a longer-term sustainable coaching programme for the organisation. It also gives teachers new tools of engagement to use in the classroom environment.
Our coaches will observe, listen and provide an hour of fun interactive movement. They are trained to address 'excuses' for inactivity thrugh challenging ideas and perceptions of exercise and also setting small attainable goals for individuals which promote positive behaviour change towards becoming more active. We will modify weekly activities to ensure we are able to meet agreed outcomes or support areas for development. All coaching is inclusive and we will bring out the best of their abilities
The primary aim of our coaching is to develop the rugby style ethos of Teamwork Respect Enjoyment Discipline and Sportsmanship (TREDS), plus of 3Cs of Communication, Cooperation and Cohesion. We want to instil good habits through making exercise fun, and promoting teamwork as this will create a desire to be physically active for life.
