Pia Cow a great event, coach­ing cour­ses on

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport - By LOU BEER

Thank you to all the triath­letes from Mata­mata who joined in the Pia Cow Com­mu­nity triathlon last month.

We had over 300 en­trants with 95 per cent com­ing from the Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict and at least one fam­ily with three gen­er­a­tions tak­ing part.

As a town that pro­duces great sports teams of adults and youth you should def­i­nitely be part of the up­com­ing com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion on youth sport which will help shape the fu­ture Ki­wis­port Waikato de­liv­ery model.

This is tak­ing place on April 29 at the Mor­rinsville Her­itage Cen­tre at 6.30pm and seeks to iden­tify bar­ri­ers and com­mu­nity pri­or­i­ties in each town.

Sport Waikato is also of­fer­ing free coach­ing cour­ses to Mata­mata- Pi­ako sports clubs and schools.

The first course on April 23 is for new and be­gin­ner coaches, whilst the next course on April 30 is Teach­ing Games for Un­der­stand­ing. Both take place at 6.30pm at the Tat­u­anui Hall.

Due to change of jobs and or lo­ca­tion we have lost a cou­ple of mem­bers of the BMX work­ing group so would wel­come any ad­di­tional help.

We are look­ing for a fundrais­ing co-or­di­na­tor for the next three to four months, and a trea­surer. Please con­tact my­self or the pres­i­dent Ziggy Burch (021 394 555) if you can help.

Fi­nally, a no­tice for club com­mit­tees, if there are any as­pects of club ad­min­is­tra­tion or devel­op­ment that you re­quire as­sis­tance with please get in touch so that I can ar­range for train­ing or as­sis­tance to suit.

Also, don’t for­get to check your con­tact in­for­ma­tion is up to date on the Sport Waikato web­site so po­ten­tial mem­bers can get in touch quickly and eas­ily. While on­line, don’t for­get to nom­i­nate your Sport­mak­ers – a lit­tle vol­un­teer recog­ni­tion can go a long way.
