Courses designed for busy coaches.

When you’re a coach, you have to live and breathe your job, you have to work long, unsocial hours, support your athletes around the clock, underpaid (we know, don’t worry, we’ve been there) and relentlessly pursue success – it isn’t easy!

All that being said, continuing to learn and sharpen your skills as a coach is not only a requirement, it’s absolutely vital.

That’s why we’ve designed our online courses to fit around your busy coaching schedule. Every mini-course is just 1 hour long and broken down into lessons that are a maximum of 15 minutes long. This means you can watch 1 lesson per day and can easily finish one course per week.

Harry Short

Harry Short

Sports Performance Coach

“I’d get so frustrated trying to stay up-to-date before my Science for Sport membership. I’d often find myself reading through something only to find that it was a complete load of rubbish copied off some fitness lifestyle website!

Now, I actually find myself excited to stay up-to-date. Everything is so easy to read and gives further details on where to continue reading about a certain topic. I’ve also saved a tonne of money on books and other research material!”

John Cheetham

John Cheetham

Endurance Coach

“I used to use various methods of keeping up-to-date with studies, such as word of mouth and internet discussions. This became a hodgepodge of information for me…

Since subscribing to Science for Sport, I’m now a more educated and well-rounded coach. It’s allowed me to free up some time that I now use to write a weekly email to my athletes. I include reviews from The Digest, and I’m able to cite every study referenced.

The result? More trust and more buy-in from my athletes!”

Michael Richards

Michael Richards

Performance Coach

“Before Science for Sport, trying to stay up-to-date with the latest sports science research was a stressful ordeal. Now, I have access to research that’s reviewed by a panel of industry experts, who quickly teach me how to practically apply these findings straight away.

Relieved and filled with confidence, I now spend less time pouring through Google and more time on the things that matter, such as acquiring more clients and educating myself.”
