At The Link we work in partnership with several clubs, organisations and companies.

Sports Coaching Northwest

Sports Coaching North West was born in July 2011, since its birth we have gradually grown both in terms of number of staff and number of schools we work with.

During term time we coach Physical Education in over 20 primary schools around Cheshire and Staffordshire, each school we work in is different and we pride ourselves in creating a bespoke service for each one, whether that be offering Change4life clubs, Sports Days, PPA cover, CPD lessons, breakfast, lunch or after school clubs.

During school holidays we offer a range of different sports camps, the majority of which last from 9am -5pm. Our Multi Sports Camps have been popular since the first one in August 2010, we offer children a choice of sports throughout the day, children get to choose what sports they want to have a go at, and so we don’t have any child doing anything they don’t want to do. During lunch times there are range of different challenges and quizzes including our popular “How well do you know the coaches?”

Our philosophy “Enjoy, Improve, Achieve” is very simple. Whether this is within the school environment or during school holidays, we want every child to Enjoy what they are doing, if they enjoy something they are bound to Improve and finally as they improve and play more and more we hope children will Achieve, within a school or club environment.

Koshido Ryu Karate

Our Club is run by Chief Instructor John Scott, 7th Dan. It was Founded by Dave Warburton in the 1970’s and John started training with him in 1982 reaching Black belt in1987. John went on to become his parent Association Men’s Lightweight Champion and took over the Club some years ago when Dave had to withdraw through illness.

The Club has gone from strength to strength and takes Students from the age of 6 years.

A Students first session is always free and parents etc are always welcome to stay and watch.

Once they know that a Student is going to stick with it they are required to get a suit to train in, we do not push for this at the start.

Payment can be made per session or on a monthly basis and there is a Nominal Club Membership fee (£20 pa) and an annual Association membership (£38) to pay. These are not required to be paid straight away.

We have a successful Competition squad run by Peter Barker 4th Dan and John, and have many recent Champions in the Club of all ages, including some placed in recent World and European Championships, as well as in domestic events.

Our Members are a friendly bunch and welcome and encourage new starters. There is no ‘waiting list’, we manage to fit in all who wish to join us.
