Hi all parents of Juniors and Teens Club members,
We are about to send out invoices for renewing membership of the Juniors and Teens groups. I thought it was time that we formalised what that membership entitles you to. So, what you get when you join?
Membership of club and affiliation to England Athletics (recommended/required). Cirencester is affiliated to England Athletics (EA).
Weekly Coached sessions
designed by an EA Qualified Athletics Coach, as part of a suitable development programme
delivered by the coach and competent helpers
Monitored by two parent “safeguarders” (based on a volunteers' rota)
Using suitable equipment for the children’s development
How many weeks:
During term time, at least 80% (4 weeks out of 5)
Free membership of “Summer Camps” sessions (2 pairs of two weeks, i.e. 4 weeks)
Half terms’ sessions (if numbers sufficient) – may be different to usual sessions, e.g. combined Juniors and Teens, or at different time
Sessions when Kingshill facilities not available, located elsewhere in Cirencester and may be at different times
Bespoke training plans for children to aid their athletic development outside of the weekly sessions, if requested by parent
Opportunities for older children to participate in the organisation and delivery of the sessions, e.g. as part of a Duke of Edinburgh activity
NB Cirencester AC does not support external charities but instead subsidises the cost of the Juniors and Teens such that financial status is not a constraint on participation.
