Sports Xtra are the children’s physical activity experts. We’re passionate about engaging and educating children to inspire them to be active! Founded in 2002 by a coach, at one time this vision was delivered within a handful of Cambridgeshire primary schools. For over a decade, we have developed an understanding in delivering children’s physical activity, with our experience and expertise influential in the shaping of this emerging industry. Now as a market leader with the infrastructure to support a national network, we work across the UK with hundreds of professional coaches delivering high quality provision in nearly one thousand primary schools. We are supporting new entrepreneurs to launch their own sports management businesses in this dynamic marketplace.

The market for children’s physical activity and school sport is an exciting place to work. On the 6th February 2014, David Cameron announced the Government’s commitment to invest a further £750 million in school sport. That’s amazing news for young people, but every active child requires a great coach to inspire them.
Sports Xtra are looking for new entrepreneurs to manage their own team of coaches, inspire children to be physically active in their community, and build a successful management franchise within their own exclusive territory. You will have rights to our unique portfolio of top-selling products such as Spy School, as well as access to our infrastructure, and the support of a national network. We also believe in mentorship, and will assign you a mentor from the start, who will work with you to achieve your goals.
Starting a business is hard work, but the rewards are there for those that are focused on achieving them. Of course there are financial rewards for successful entrepreneurs and in a rapidly growing market there are opportunities to make significant financial returns. However that is not the driver for everyone. Being part of something that is positively impacting the younger generation is a great motivator. Building your own business and employing young people to make a difference in your local community is incredibly satisfying. Achieving a better work to life balance to spend more time with your family can become more important than any other factor in your career. Any of those motivators is a great reason to speak to us about building a successful business.
Sharing our passion for sports, children’s wellbeing and business is an ideal starting point. Our business is about building strong working relationships. Successful entrepreneurs within the Sports Xtra network come from a diverse range of sectors including sales, accounting, IT and operations - but all have the ability to establish and then build their relationships with headteachers, coaches and parents. Your background is important, but less relevant to your potential success than is your ability to build relationships with your schools using our successful model, identify staff that you can develop, and facilitate great activity courses for children.
