Training for Athletics Leaders and Coaching Assistants Print
With support from England Athletics we are seeking to train club members and parents of Junior athletes to be Athletics Leaders and Coaching Assistants. June Swift, our England Athletics Club Support Officer, is really keen to help our club following the refurbishment of the track at Foxhollies and is ensuring that we have access to the required EA training.

The Athletics Leader qualification will enable us to help out with a juniors' coaching session under the guidance & supervision of a qualified coach (Dave or Ambrose).

It will involve one day at Foxhollies Leisure Centre (facilities being kindly provided free-of-charge by the manager Andy Bradshaw) with classroom work followed by track work (probably 8.30 x 16.30 or similar). There is no test/examination/assessment for this qualification.

If you wish to become an Athletics Leader please contact me and let me know your availability for the following date please:

Sunday 24 November 2013

(This is a date where we have no junior or senior X/C fixtures, and is before the mad month of December!) As soon as I have replies (and - I hope - enough of us to make the day worthwhile) I will contact June and Andy to confirm. Please confirm interest and availability asap.

I am aware that some of our members wish to undertake the assessed Coach Assistant (2 day) course as a preparation for eventual full coaching qualification. Please let me know if you are interested in this qualification as I will be sorting out future course dates with June Swift. Now that we've got the track done it'd be great to increase our coaching capacity and these are the first steps in doing so. Please give me a ring, call or email if you have any queries.

Volunteers needed: painting & decorating! Print
Andy Bradshaw, Manager at Fox Hollies Leisure Centre, has managed to secure £400 worth of paint and materials from the "Let's Colour" scheme to redecorate the main hall in the Fitness Suite (the room used by our Juniors on club-nights before going onto the track).

It is intended to do this work in a single day: many hands make light work!

The day is: Thursday 14th November 2013

We are looking for Sparkhill Harriers and parents of Juniors to help out on the day: paintbrushes etc will be provided.

If you can join in for whole or part of the day please let Rob Mills know asap.
