FEEDBACK

Wayne was so understanding and knowledgeable, but what impressed me the most was the manner in which he formed such an early positive relationship with Saul.

Wayne has genuine likeability factors anyway, but he is not merely a very effective listener and fitness/ conditioning coach, he breeds confidence in his client in a way I have never witnessed elsewhere.

In our opinion, Richardson Sport seems to have filled a vital gap in the academy system.

Problems with conditioning, fitness, running styles and the like are noted by academies, but not rectified.

This possibly results in many talented footballers being released. Wayne and his team are the plug in this gap.

We were first referred to Wayne by BWFC as they have had previous players who trained with Richardson Sport and value the coaching given very highly. Wayne is not only a coach to Fin but also a friend and a mentor who has offered Fin guidance with his football, school and personal life.

Since working with Wayne, we have seen massive improvements in Finlay’s football, his athletic ability and his strength but more importantly his confidence and his attitude both to sport and general life. I would recommend Wayne to anyone and feel as though Bolton putting us in touch with Wayne is the best thing that could’ve happened to Fin.

Thanks for everything you have done Wayne we look forward to continuing Finlay’s journey with you.

Luke joined Burnley Football club in August 2012 at the age of 10. Luke was doing extremely well but in order to raise the bar higher and add an extra dimension to his game we decided to invest in some training sessions with Wayne. Wayne had been recommended to us by coaches at the club.

In 2013 we went for our initial consultation and Wayne made us all feel welcome and we instantly felt at ease. The facility at Manchester Sport City was second to none and the work ethic of the young athletes within the complex was inspirational to Luke. As a family we discussed Luke’s strengths and areas for improvement and Wayne devised a bespoke programme to stretch him and improve his overall game.

As a result Luke has become quicker,more technical and physically stronger. He naturally applies his new skills to his game and has continued to make excellent progress. In March 2014 Luke signed for Wolverhampton Wanders Football Academy and is now enjoying category 1 Football.

He has just been selected to represent the club in an International Football Tournament with the year above due to his ability.

Wayne has without a doubt improved Luke as an athlete. Luke always enjoys his sessions and Wayne will adapt his sessions due to the amount of activity Luke has done in a week.

We are all really pleased with his progress.
Thank you Wayne!!

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Our Championship, Premiership, and League 1 packages include the following support:

SPORTS MENTORING

Sports Mentoring of the athlete or parent – talking about and working through any concerns the parent has about their child’s progress outside of the physical training sessions. We might not be able to talk straight away, and may ask you to book a telephone or face to face consultation.

GAME ATTENDANCE

Game attendance – during the season, we’ll get out to watch you in games so we can see first-hand how our coaching is translating on the pitch. Once fixtures are known, please send them over to us, and we’ll put plans in place to be at some of your game.

SESSION USE & ADDITIONAL COSTS

The above packages provide one session per week for the duration of the package.

However, during the Off Season, some athletes choose to use some of their sessions intensively over a short period of time (usually during the school holidays) and in the lead up to returning to their respective clubs in order to ensure they #GoBackReady

Please note you may be asked to adjust your payments to keep them on track with usage if you opt to use some of the sessions in the way described above.

There is the opportunity (availability permitting) to use some of the sessions to work on the players foot work and finishing skills outside on the 3G Astro Pitches.

These sessions must be booked in advance and will be charged for separately.

If you want to sign up for one of our 1-2-1 Coaching Packages, you must arrange your Fitness Test or Assessment Session via a Discovery Call using the button below. Thank you.
