Urgent Request For Help With Juveniles..
Members, Friends and Parents of Bray Runners Juveniles
We have a fairly urgent need for additional coaching resources. While we are fortunate to have a committed team of coaches, we have recently had to turn away new potential athletes due to capacity limitations - one week, we turned away as many as 8 potential athletes who wanted to join the club. Also we now have very limited cover should one of our coaches be unavailable for a particular training session.
Would you please consider joining the coaching team, either as a coaching assistant, or with the intention of becoming a trained juvenile athletics coach in due course.
If you wished to become a fully trained coach, the club will sponsor you to attend the relevant Coach Education courses over a period of time, run by Athletics Ireland.
Alternatively if you were willing to help out as a coaching assistant we would pair you up with a trained coach from one of our groups, and would ask you to help out for 2 weeks a month, or on alternative months, in rotation with another coaching assistant.
There is no initial requirement or qualification, other than a willingness to get involved.
In line with AI's policy on child protection, all members of the coaching team do have to get Garda Clearance and attend one of AI's Code of Ethics courses.
If any of you would be interested in knowing more, please contact me on this email address,
Thank You, Bill Stanley, Juvenile Coordinator.
