Coaching programme hailed a success
Arran High pupils who learned leadership skills will use them to coach younger children.
The Leaders Week programme organised by North Ayrshire Council’s Active Schools team to develop the coaching and leadership skills of 63 pupils, from schools in the authority area, has been hailed a success.
An army of top-class coaches from sports, including the Scottish Football Association, Scottish Rugby/Ardrossan Accies, Scottish Athletics, Scottish Hockey, Basketball Scotland, Ydance Scotland, Scottish Rugby and Scottish Disability Sport, passed on a wealth of knowledge during the four-day course at St Matthew’s Academy.
Pupils gained Active Schools/Scottish Governing Body awards at the end of the week.
Bruce McMaster, Active Schools co-ordinator, said: ‘It was a fantastic week and I must pay tribute to all the pupils who took part.
‘A big thanks must go to all the organisations and coaches who took part.’
