Be part of a thriving business We will give you all the tools you need to make your coaching business a success. Exclusive areas are available in many parts of England, offering you the opportunity to work with us to build your business using a proven system. After coaching for a number of other coaching organisations, we identified a number of fundamental elements that were missing from systems employed and so Foundation Sports was established in 1999, with a vision to create a quality organisation. Foundations Sports has evolved into a thriving business and now you can benefit from the exceptional systems developed over the last 15 years.
Why franchising? Franchising is a fantastic way to start and run your own business – it provides you with an opportunity to earn an income but with the support and backdrop of the franchisor behind you. Reduce the risk A franchise reduces the risk of failure. It is fact that a franchise has more chance of success compared to a standalone business, because a franchise offers more: • Knowledge transfer. • Skills and training. • Financial advice. • Support. For people who start up a new franchise the risk is substantially reduced – because you are buying the experience and expertise of the franchisor. This will also help you avoid making the same mistakes that they have while developing a good business model. When you become part of a successful franchise business you gain the advantage of better buying power and links into strong relationships with institutions and companies that have been developed already. Foundation Sports franchises receive a turnkey and business system, and a package so that they can start building their business immediately after completing the induction course.

In England there are 113,040 primary school academies and 1,249,865 secondary academies.
