About us

ESDC UK Ltd was set up in August 2009 to deliver PPA in SEN schools around Coventry. After being extremely successful in this area and establishing ourselves as a major player within the sports sector we have expanded the company. We now currently offer Curriculum Delivery, breakfast and after-school coaching, BTEC lecturing, holiday activities, birthday parties, a mobile climbing wall, 3G Football Pitch and a swimming programme. In December 2018 we took ownership of the old Arley Sports Centre, now called ELITE Sports Centre. The centre now offers brand new gym equipment, a functional training zone, over 14 exercise classes per week, sports hall hire for indoor football, badminton, basketball etc as well as birthday parties, children’s holiday clubs and more.

Our team of expert coaching staff all specialise in a variety of sports, from dance and gymnastics to tag rugby, hand ball and cricket. All staff hold at least one Level 2 coaching qualification and participate in a minimum of 6 training days per year to help with their CPD portfolios. Everyone employed by us will hold a valid and up-to-date enhanced disclosure and first aid certificate.
