Known for its sports coaching excellence, the AFYA team will be responsible for leading on a development program for both the players and coaches at Lymm RFC.

Technical development will include strength and conditioning, speed training, tactical and place kicking plus scrummaging and lineout. There will also be a focus on positional awareness and development, contact development, team tactics and diet and nutrition.

Guy Larkin, Coaching Co-ordinator at Lymm Rugby Club, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with AFYA, a company with a strong reputation for sports coaching excellence.

“AFYA share our passion for developing our players and coaches so we can raise aspirations, skill, performance and attitude at all levels.

“To match our ambitious plans off the field with our clubhouse project, we are also keen to make further investment to support our many volunteer coaches by helping them provide safe sporting experiences for our fantastic young players through regular work with AFYA.

“We have a very proud tradition of producing many great quality mini and junior sides at Lymm RFC and we wish to continue this success long into the future.”

James Wade, AFYA’s Chief Operating Officer and a top coach who was Head of Player Development at Wasps, Head of Sale Sharks Academy and is currently Head Coach at Oxford University RUFC, said: “This is an exciting partnership for AFYA. Whatever the level of a player’s ability, we offer all players the opportunity to achieve their highest level of performance.”
