Clubs, Teams & Open Classes Performance

Teams of all ages and sports are welcome here

We specialise in ‘Athlete Development’ and provide sessions for teams and clubs at a variety of levels.

Athletes in all sports and at all levels want to win. But winning takes determination, confidence, technical ability and above all, fitness. At Richardson Sport, we treat mindset and training with equal importance.  Whether you’re a professional or amateur athlete, we can transform you into a winner. Having access to professional football fitness coaching in top-class facilities is vital to the development of players, both young and old.

Our sessions are aimed at improving key performance indicators for every pitch position in football (sessions can be tailored to other sports). We explore disciplines such as competent body control in all directions, safe jumping and landing, power-developing ballistic movements such as medicine ball work and joint stabilising/strengthening work, to help keep you injury-free. We also look at correct technical models for sprinting and plyometric work which, if performed correctly, will have a direct influence on speed development.

For clubs/teams/groups we can provide one-off sessions or a programme of sessions.

Amazing place and coaching our girls loved every minuite

    Thank you, Wayne, for the continued support with Ewan’s sports performance. Your coaching has played a huge part in progressing Ewan’s strength, speed and fitness, so much so that he has been offered a further 2-year contract with a Rochdale Academy. Your sessions push him mentally and physically and he looks forward to getting back to the sessions.

    I couldn't speak more highly of Wayne and the team at Richardson Sport. Not only is he a fantastic coach but a great mentor. He is really passionate about his students and takes time to understand what drives them to make a better athlete. Thank you Wayne and Richardson Sport

    My daughter has just started a course of sessions with Wayne, she found the first session really useful. Her exact words were, ‘that you've connected a lot of dots’. She has always been a child that is eager to learn and be the best she can be. So she is really looking forward to working with you and can already see the benefit that you will bring to her football. Thank you.

    My son spent around 10 weeks working with Wayne in his football athletic development sessions & loved it. He’s never been blessed with pace but Wayne taught him techniques that gave him the boost that he needed.
