Squad development day July 2012

Dear coaches,

The next Regional Squad day has been set for the 29th July 2012. We appreciate this may affect availability of gymnasts and coaches owing to the holiday period, but coordinating dates, venue and squad coach availability has proven difficult.

The venue will be at the Brentwood Centre on Doddinghurst Road, Brentwood (signposted from central Brentwood and just a few minutes from our regular venue).

We will update the details of the day well in advance, but would personal coaches indicate their/gymnasts intention to attend the squad day asap.


Paul Kitchen & Jack Kelly

Funding Directory from SportsCoachUK

Sports Coach UK

Sarah Parker at BG has advised us of another source of funding opportunities:

Sports Coach UK in partnership with the CSSN and SkillsActive has updated the Funding Opportunities for Coaching guide. The guide contains information on funding available in England to support coaching.

The guide is now available to download from http://www.sportscoachuk.org/resource/funding-coaching-guide.

This is an extremely useful tool so please make use of it.

… with 66 pages of detailed listings though you will need to set some time aside to review them all (although the first 8 are national and the next 11 Eastern so maybe not too bad)!

We are pleased to announce the following performers who will (provisionally) form our first Regional Training Squad to be held at Bentwood School Sports Centre on Sunday April 1st 2012.

It is important that you understand that this is a  DRAFT squad and we intend to confirm the final squad on the Monday after the Saffron Walden Grading competition.  As previously stated we apologise in advance should anyone be named here that will subsequently not make the final squad, this will not preclude them from working towards the next squad day to be held in June.

As coaches could you please confirm that your performer is available to attend the squad session if finally selected and the name of the coach who will attend with them? The squad session will be operated along the lines of other regional squads where drills and measures will be carried out.  Future squad participation for all members will depend upon continued improvement towards national goals.  Jack Kelly will be attending the day.

Should you have any queries or feel we have omitted someone from the squad in error please do not hesitate to contact us.
