FAMILY FUN DAY 2019
Today we had our first ever Family Fun Day to thank all the fantastic children who come to our classes and the parents who have given us so much support over the past year.
The day proved a great success with children and parents taking part in all of activities which ranged from floorball, VX, kurling, soft archery, Crazy Catch, bowls and sack races plus the compulsory bouncy castle.
Thank you to everyone who came along and contributed to a super day.
Thanks for delicious goodies you brought along although with the children there were no cup cakes left😞
Also want to take the opportunity to thank our coaches who helped out on the day you did an amazing job; Alex, Gavin, William, Jack, Will and Adam.
Big thank you to Deborah and Emma who helped clean and tidy up.
Also a big thank you to the staff at Dunblane Centre for their help.
Well done to Archie and Isla who helped with the setup and signs.
Lastly thanks for all the cards and presents very much appreciated.
Have an amazing Summer and look forward to seeing everyone after the holidays.
Some of you might not know that Coach my Sport is a Community Interest Company (CiC).
What is a Community Interest Company ?
A Community Interest Company is a business with primary social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.
CICs tackle a wide range of social and environmental issues and operate in all parts of the economy. By using business solutions to achieve public good, it is believed that CICs have a distinct and valuable role to play in helping create a strong, sustainable and socially inclusive economy.
Coach My Sport is now using it surpluses to fund an Academy Programme aimed at young people not in education, employment or training, those not engaged at school or those with disabilities (whether sensory, physical or mental)
Although our programme is looking to upskill the young people to become sports coaches any positive destination would be a success for us. Just to see the confidence building in young people moving onto a better future and becoming role models in their communities would be viewed as a success for the programme.
So your contribution to the classes goes directly to funding the Academy Programme and we could not support this work without your support.
We would all like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone.
Great article which I support as a parent and not the coach
One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money for your kids to do all their sports”? Well I have a confession to make; I don't pay for my kids to to do sports. Personally, I couldn't care less about what sport they do.
So, if I am not paying for sports what am I paying for?
- I pay for those moments when my kids become so tired they want to quit but don't.
- I pay for those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go to their training but they go anyway.
- I pay for my kids to learn to be disciplined, focused and dedicated.
- I pay for my kids to learn to take care of their body and equipment.
- I pay for my kids to learn to work with others and to be good team mates, gracious in defeat and humble in success.
- I pay for my kids to learn to deal with disappointment, when they don't get that placing or title they'd hoped for, but still they go back week after week giving it their best shot.
- I pay for my kids to learn to make and accomplish goals.
- I pay for my kids to respect, not only themselves, but other riders, officials and coaches.
- I pay for my kids to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to create a champion and that success does not happen overnight.
- I pay for my kids to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.
- I pay for the opportunity my kids have and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of their achievements as I am.
- I pay so that my kids can be out on the track instead of in front of a screen...
...I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for sports;
I pay for the opportunities that sports provides my kids with to develop attributes that will serve them well throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment!"
