MNR Coaching are a Primary School Sports provider delivering services throughout the school day, these range from traditional sporting PE lessons to more diverse extracurricular activities to ensure there are activities for everyone to enjoy. At MNR Coaching the philosophy is to Inspire, Educate and Develop all of the athletes and to do this we have pathway organisations with local clubs set up to ensure participation doesn’t stop when the school gates close!

To ensure all coaching is carried out to the highest possible standard and is most beneficial for the children ALL MNR Coaches have obtained a minimum level 2 coaching qualification and coaching assessments/training days are carried out throughout the academic year that are led by internal staff with specific coaching qualifications/experience in the sport.

MNR Coaching was formed in 2013 by three sports graduates who had a passion for sports coaching. One of the graduates Michael Chard recognised that sports coaching wasn’t something that should just be ‘coached’ and quickly established a link with West Berkshire School Sport Network to ensure there would be a ‘legacy’ from the coaching and opportunities given to Primary School Staff to upskill their own PE lessons whilst given children of all backgrounds enrichment opportunities with funded afterschool clubs and opportunities to compete against over schools in network based competitions hosted by affiliated clubs in the area.

Moving through to the present day MNR have quickly established a reputation as a high-quality coaching provider and this has been continually fed back to the organisation through testimonials which are available on request.

In 2015 MNR expanded beyond the West Berkshire Network and now replicate their services in Maidenhead and Ascot School Sports Network, this led by Nathan Baker gives opportunities to all schools in the affiliation to receive high quality sports provision throughout the year alongside a year ending multi-skills festival delivered by Nathan with the assistance of Ascot and Maidenhead Sports Network.

Outside of the academic year MNR Coaching also run multi-activity holiday camps under our ‘Let Them Play’ banner, camps focusing on the children having fun whilst staying active and socialising in a safe learning environment. You can find more information on the Let Them Play holiday courses page.
