About Us


The Lions brand was originally set up in 2011 by one of our Founders, Simon Pennock, to allow more children from all backgrounds to enjoy top-level sports coaching on a volunteer basis. The Lions offered support to players who missed out on representative rugby and provided a structured and fun environment to develop young players skills, with the end result of playing games against established private schools. 

Lions Sports Academy is passionate, qualified and committed to improve and develop players of all ages and abilities. At present, Lions coach a variety of sports including rugby, speed & agility resistance training in schools, nurseries, universities, clubs and gyms within the Middlesex, Surrey and Greater London area.

Our mission is to become the leading sports provider across the country. It is an achievement we all believe will happen, however, we won’t stop when we get there!

We hope to see you all along the way.
