Operations Manager

Hi - My name is Davie and I‘ve been with Club Sport since 2014. Within that time I’ve had various roles but now oversee day to day operations as well as heading up our Balanceability programme which I love!

About Us

Club Sport was established over 10 years ago with the aim of inspiring and engaging children in Sport.

Our director James started the company himself in 2009 with a passion for providing outstanding, energetic and fun sports sessions for children.

Since that time we have managed to maintain that core aim and now deliver activities to around 5,000 children per week through our sessions in schools.

We also now deliver Oftsed registered holiday camps across South Buckinghamshire with our team of fantastic coaches ensuring the children try new sports and activities while having endless fun throughout the day.

Our aim is to provide a ‘one-stop shop’ for local parents to engage their children in sports and physical activity. Our passion for health and fitness has lead us to work with numerous partners across the country and now, as well as our in school PE & Sports sessions we also deliver Active Maths classes, training courses for teachers and even teaching children how to ride a bike!

A Letter from our founder

When I first started Club Sport it was due to a passion for getting children active and engaged in a sport they love.

I honestly believe that there is a sport or physical activity out there for everyone! Children just need time and patience to figure out which one is for them.

Most importantly though is that they first enjoy being active and have great fun being involved with sports to ensure that they develop a lifelong love for keeping fit and healthy.

Yes it’s important that our staff have the right training, development, certification and licenses required to be a sports coach but the magic ingredient is Enthusiasm and Energy which is what i always tried to instil into my sessions when i first started the company.

If the coach is having a great time then so will the children which leads to happy parents and schools!

This simply methodology is at the centre of everything we do and is my main aim when I start each day.

If you ever need anything I’m always at the end of the phone or an email and would love to hear from you.

Our Staff

Having delivered high quality sports coaching to schools and parents for our 10 years we pride ourselves on finding, recruiting and training individuals that are energetic, engaging, professional and fun to teach your children.

As well as this they have all the certification and training that you would expect such as:

  • DBS Checked
  • Paediatric First
  • Safeguarding Children Training
  • Level 1 or 2 NGB Qualifications
  • NVQ Level 3 in supporting PE & School Sport

We maintain a small, closely knit team of around 80% full time staff and 20% part time staff to support our delivery as well as our Operations Manager, Davie, and Company Founder, James, who support our customers and staff from our office in High Wycombe.

Over the years we have recruited and worked with some outstanding individuals. As is the quality of our recruitment and training system over the years many of our staff have been recruited by local schools as their on site PE Teacher. Although we are always sad to see them go we believe that career progression, development and a continual willingness to learn is one of the most important qualities of a good sports coach. We always take it as a compliment that so many of our staff have gone on to be recruited by local schools that we also service.

“Club Sport have been delivering with us this year and it’s been a really positive experience. All the teachers that have been involved have asked to have them back again next year for PECS.”

“My two children have been attending the Club Sport Camps since they started running at Widmer End School. They both love it, and it’s a great club for the kids to attend with different sports for them to try. The coaches are really good and great with the kids, and it’s the only club that my son will attend. Thank you Club Sport!”
