The committee is pleased to report that Tracey Jones and Gemma Saint , both qualified coaches with the club, have volunteered to support the academy until the end of the current membership year, 31 March 2020. This will be run as a pilot scheme to assess the feasibility of this forming a long term solution for managing the academy.
We anticipate that other coaches in specialist disciplines within the club will come in to lead sessions on a rota basis so that our young athletes are exposed to all these different disciplines.
Tracey and Gemma will be at the sport centre on Wednesday 25th September to meet the athletes and parents and discuss some of the changes.
