About Us

Funsport4kidz is a sports coaching company formed in 2006 by Head Coach Chris Yates who has 20 years experience coaching a variey of different sports, it has grown from strength to strength working with School Sport Partnerships, Sports National Governing Bodies & Sport Organisations in the Greater Manchester area, coaching children aged from 3-16.

Funsport4kidz provides a full school sports provision and is currently working full time in 5 schools per week in both Wigan and Salford.

We run four weekly football academies for children aged 6-11 years of age where children are personally scouted and invited into my sessions and then coached by myself, covering all the technical aspects of the game, this is encouraged by playing lots of skill based & small sided games to learn and develop their footballing ability.

I believe in the children learning football through playing, where children can express themselves without the fear of making mistakes in a safe, stimulating and a enjoyable environment.

My academies have a direct link with a Football League Championship Football Club, where the boys attend the clubs Pre Academy sessions at the age of Under 8s, my academies have proven to be very successful with 10 players signing a professional contract, something that I'm extremely proud of.

Funsport4kidz coach overseas, after developing strong links with Progress Sports, a sports coaching company based in Belgium, which has enabled myself to coach football to children in both Belgium and Luxembourg.

The link with Progress Sports enables Funsport4kidz enhance their coaching experience, cultures, diversity and learn new languages and coaching styles off foreign coaches and children.
