DPD Coaching Services was
established in 2001 to provide a wide range of sports coaching services
for children and adults throughout Sussex. The company has continued to
develop all areas of the business and now provides sports coaching and
children’s holiday activities all year round.
We enjoy working together with health clubs, schools, local social clubs
and hotels. The Company was set up with the view to create and
develop a service for children giving them the opportunity to excel in
sport, thus creating a healthier future generation in Sussex.
Through recreational activities, we believe, by encouraging children to
participate in sport we can install confidence and focus, whilst having
fun and making new friends.
Just a few of our successes we are very proud of include children going
on to swim at County level, adults overcoming a life-long fear of water,
players representing their schools and clubs.
