About Sports Trek Coaching

Sports Trek Coaching was originally formed in the late 1990s by John McNamee (FA and ASA Licensed Coach) and Lyall Timmons (LTA Tennis Professional) to offer sports coaching to boys and girls of all abilities and ages, with a core philosophy that sports sessions are delivered with care so that all children enjoy learning new sports skills regardless of their ability.

Todays Sports Trek Coaching was established in January 2011 by John McNamee and continues to go from strength to strength.
Without doubt, we attribute our success to being exceptionally customer focussed, coupled with a high degree of professionalism and expertise.
We continue to provide our very popular Soccer and Swimming coaching to youngsters at several venues around the Cockermouth area,
with our ethos towards making children feel valued and confident, whilst improving their own targets regardless of “starting point” ability.

Sports Trek Coaching has also run the Pool at Embleton Spa Hotel near Cockermouth since October 2012. A truly luxurious pool, it is offered for private hire as well as being available to members, with a range of membership options

The hotel now plays host to the Sports Trek Gym at Embleton Spa - a state of the art fitness facility, with a great mix of cardio and resistance equipment spread over two floors, in beautiful surroundings.

In line with our philosophy of inclusiveness, one of the main drives with our gym was to attract people who may not have used a gym before. We are proud that we have managed to break down the biggest barrier to gym participation - peoples uncertainty over their fitness, or feeling intimidated by others in the gym. We feel we have accomplished this by regular, optional fitness testing and programming, whilst setting realistic goals at no extra cost to members. More importantly, Sports Trek have achieved this by encouraging a friendly atmosphere where it's fine to work at your own pace.

Whether your looking for Soccer or Swimming coaching for youngsters, or looking to improve your fitness or even to spend some time in our lovely pool, Sports Trek can help - get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.
