About Progressive Sports


Progressive Sports was started back in 2006, and continues to operate its services in schools and communities around Staffordshire in the Midlands. The step was taken to Franchise the business back in 2009, so that the Progressive Sports experience could be experienced across the whole of the UK!

A lot has changed since the early days, but the commitment to provide excellence to all of our customers is just as strong, there is a very friendly atmosphere within the company, so whether your a Franchisee or a part-time employee we want everybody to feel part of the family. The main difference between when we started and now, is the amount of knowledge and know-how that we have gained. We are very serious about setting the standards in our industry, and there is a continued process of refinement with all our services.

We are very happy to share all the information and knowledge we have gained over the years with those people who are interested in owning their own successful sports coaching business. There are a number of revenue streams to the business which offers a comprehensive package to potential Franchisees. So to truly understand our business you should come to our next Discovery Day.

The future is bright, and the deep rooted passion Progressive Sports has to make a difference in schools and communities across the UK, just grows stronger. When you meet us you will understand there is a simple message that underpins our business, and this is to inspire, engage and empower - children to be active and involved in sport across the UK. 

here's whatOur Franchisees Say

our clients say
testimonial quotes
  • “When I looked to purchase a franchise, the business support available to me was a key factor in my decision. Progressive Sports have been excellent; the start up business training and the assistance with the initial marketing and launch strategy was really superb. Thanks to Eddie and the Progressive Sports team, I have hit the ground running and have positioned myself to build a significant client base in the first three months of trading.“

    Kevin WattsKevin Watts, South East London Franchisee

  • "Since the launch of Progressive Sports in North Gloucestershire in September 2012. Eddie and his team have always been on hand to help with any matters. The advice and knowledge that Eddie offers to me as a franchisee is excellent, nothing is too big or too small, and with the help of head office we are continuing to grow as a franchise in North Gloucestershire and are looking forward to many successful years ahead"

    Brian BurkeBrian Burke, North Gloucestershire

  • Having left the corporate world behind after a number of years working in banking, I decided I wanted a fresh challenge, which combined my passion for sport as well as having the freedom of becoming my own boss. When I came across Progressive Sports and listened to what they had to say, I realised it was a perfect fit, and my only regret is I wish that I had done it sooner!

    Wayne RobinsonWayne Robinson, South Essex Franchisee

  • After being involved in coaching for a number of years, we decided to go into partnership to start our own sports coaching business, and after some research Progressive Sports was the right franchise for us. The support from head office has been great from day one and we are looking forward to growing a significant business in the years ahead.

    Mauro and LiamMauro Beca & Liam Loynd, South Manchester Franchisees

  • “The support has been really good and has helped is establish ourselves in our first year. We receive a lot of support in the way of marketing, which helps us to continue to grow our business. Also, outside of the direct support we receive from the Head Office, I meet up regularly with neighbouring Franchisees to share good practise.“
