Sports Leaders Course
Between Thursday, 22 October and Thursday, 29 October a 5-day-long Sports Leaders UK Course was organised by Daniel King from BGC Wales and Mark Hutton, the Dynamic Communities Project Leader for Rhondda, at Ynyshir & Wattstown Boys’ and Girls’ Club. 10 girls and 4 boys aged between 14 and 17 took part in the course and learned how to run successful training sessions.
The course entailed theoretical lessons about how to be a good leader, different coaching styles, the key elements of a training session and much more and a lot of practical exercises. During the last two days of the course, the participants had to plan a whole training session and present it to the group as their final assessment. For completing the course, the boys and girls have to volunteer for 10 hours in a sports club of their choice.
