Mentoring

& Workshops

We should not just aspire to make a living, but aspire to make a difference

We have a strong grassroots focus and increasingly deliver sports programmes across Greater Manchester to schools and communities. We also offer motivational support and guidance on fitness and activity, particularly to highlight and address physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Our continued development into one of the top Performance Sport specialists in the UK has been underpinned by strict adherence to our core values of Commitment, Honesty, Positivity, Passion and Personal Development.

MENTORING FOR SCHOOLS AND PUPIL REFERRAL UNITS

I am ready to deliver extraordinary insights and motivation to your students

Through the Pupil Premium allowance, Wayne works with students on specifically designed programmes, either 1-2-1 or in small groups. Projects take place at your venue or ours, and the students we work with generally have an interest in sport and fitness, and like the idea of working in the industry in some capacity. Students may also need to work on their own personal fitness or have the need for an intervention to improve their well-being. Availability for these projects is very limited.

SPORTS MENTORING FOR ASPIRING COACHES, ATHLETES AND PARENTS

We can help you gain the experience not found in books or posts

Sometimes the most important thing is to be able to speak to someone that understands the journey you are on. If you are an aspiring coach, athlete or a parent it is not unusual to need some extra support and someone that can listen and advise. Contact us to find out how we can support you.

WORKSHOPS

“Wayne always provides an informative, educational and insightful sessions with our students”

Wayne runs a number of workshops, designed to tie in with your course syllabus and your desired outcomes, where he talks candidly about his time with clubs and players throughout the leagues, from Manchester City FC through to non-league Droylsden FC. He will visit schools and colleges or invite them to attend sessions at The National Taekwondo Centre, Manchester, where we are based.

He talks about how he got started as a coach and provides tips and insights that will resonate with students pursuing a career as part of a back-room team.  He is sometimes joined by guest athletes and players (retired and current) and he is always happy to answer questions.

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

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.
