Northern Hope Centre Ltd
We have a young leader Academy for our gymnasts ageing from 11yrs-17yrs. These young people assist in the coaching of our beginner and improver sessions they also have monthly meetings to which they orgainse and deliver fundraising activities. As well as coaching in the session they also organise fundays in the school holidays, they work together as a team to organise the days activites ensuring that the children on the course have a good time.
Our Young leaders have impressed our governing body (British Gymnastics) so much that they have bee asked if they can use pictures of them for their information booklets that they send to other clubs, they have also had an article on the website about their organising skills.
As an incentive to keep up the teamwork and focus on the tasks in hand we give the young leaders a choice of a thankyou day out. This year they chose to go to Lightwater Valley a local theme park all expenses paid. This was paid for by the fundraising the young leaders did this year.
We also use the fundraising money to pay for any courses that the children apply for.We have had a number of the young leaders on a variety of courses which include : coaching, judgeing, child protection and first aid.
