Craig's weekly roundup 17.02.20
Young activators - on Wednesday, during their mid-term school holiday, a number of our junior members gave up their time to attend a Young Activators course at Lochore Meadows. The Young Activators award is the first rung on the coaching ladder and will see some of our older juniors begin to take a bit of responsibility during coaching sessions at the club. They will lead warm-ups and cool-downs, help organise equipment for sessions and feed into the planning process for future sessions. Well done to all who gave up their valuable school holiday to complete this and we're looking forward to seeing you get more involved.
