At Lions Sports Academy, we believe in inspiring children and young adults to realise their potential through participation in sport and physical activity.
Our mission is to provide a holistic development where individuals become self-motivated and understand how to develop their body both physically and mentally. It doesn’t matter if they want to play sports at their club or simply be fit and active, we will be there to support their development. Our coaches will connect on an individual level to take away the feeling of being taught, and in a way that gets them to drive them to be a fit and active person for the remainder of their life.
We will achieve this through our Athlete Development Programme which encompasses both Foundation Strength, a youth resistance training programme and Speed Academy, a youth speed and agility programme.
Our aim with Athlete Development is to create an ecosystem of support for your child through small group sessions with sports nutritionists, physiotherapists and sports rehabilitation professionals alongside the quarterly testing to keep on top of where your child is with their development.
BENEFITS OF ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT
With a wealth of experience, we know how to get the best out of our players so that they can flourish on and off the pitch.
"My children (son and daughter) have both taken part in several Lions Athlete Development Programmes over the last few years. They have always had a great time (making new friends) and have come away with improved physical attributes, attitudes to training/learning and lots of new and important knowledge. The sessions are more than just workouts. I believe that the education and training they have received from their time with Lions has played an important role in their successes as athletes and as students in general. As well as earning multiple national and international medals in Judo and Olympic Freestyle Wrestling my son is now in his 2nd year in the London Irish DPP. And my daughter, as well as an avid rugby player, has won both Judo and Olympic Freestyle Wrestling British Championships. Andy and his team are awesome. Their sessions/programmes are highly recommended."
