Onside Coaching has over 20 years’ experience in the children’s sports coaching industry. We provide fun and engaging school holiday childcare services and bespoke sports and activity programmes to primary schools. As a business, we are registered with Ofsted and as a franchising company we are members of The British Franchise Association.  We are proud to be associated with both of these organisations as it demonstrates that we understand the importance of high standards and good practice.

Franchise Overview

OSC Franchising formed 3 years ago. With having so much success with their Central Team, it was time to duplicate in other areas. It was time for the Onside Coaching Central Team to replicate their business model that they have had huge success with for over 20 years. The franchise model operates over 3 areas of business; school provision, holiday childcare and community work. Each of these areas of business can form different topics such as Forest School, Sport and Dance. They welcome new ideas that can be shared across the network of franchisees to share best practice and to offer more branches to the Onside Offering. OSC Franchising has a Franchise Manager, to support growth and be on hand for all franchisees and an inhouse graphic designer for any design work they need to help promote their business.

OSC Franchising aim to be operating Nationwide with franchises in the North, East, West and South of England within the next 5 years.


Every new franchise owner will spend the first 4 weeks completing initial training with the Franchise Manager. They will also shadow Senior Coaches within the central team to understand how they operate in schools. Franchisees will have access to over 60 safeguarding and child protection courses. For example, first aid, DSL, introduction to thematics, mental health first aid, health and safety, GDPR are all mandatory as a business owner. These are all online and can be completed at home.

Franchisees are also invited to any coach training courses ran by HQ. HQ informs the network of any other training available too. These usually take place in the beautiful setting of the HQ office ‘The Warwickshire’ Golf Club.

The franchise manager will hold brief weekly network meetings, to discuss how the week has gone, and what is planned for the following week. Termly planning meeting individually with franchisees and then annual financial and growth meeting that include the Directors.

Franchise Network Meetings also happen termly. This will include specific training to help a certain area of business. This may include social media training, sales training, or recruitment training. The franchise Manager is available at any time to help support business owners.

What will I do as a Franchisee

All the franchisees are Operating Directors. Predominantly working on their business in the morning and in their business most afternoons, ‘on the shop floor’ doing what they do best. Delivering outstanding sessions to schools within their territory. Even the Directors of the Onside Umbrella still deliver sessions today. A typical week would include; keeping contact with existing schools, informing parents of childcare courses, promoting childcare courses and extra-curricular courses, recruiting and training staff, running social media pages, keeping the CMS updated.
