Over the past few weeks our volunteers have worked enthusiastically with the students on athletics skills. The students have been learning race starts and it’s amazing how their skills have improved in a short time with a few technique tips from the volunteers. Baton changes are always quite a challenge, cooperation and timing are the key. Once again, it’s great to see how well the children improve with guidance and practise to develop these team work skills.
A new local athletics club is starting up close to ACJ. The coaches are keen to get the local children involved. By supporting children to develop their athletics skills we can open the door for many children to confidently join these clubs and further develop their skills and interests in athletics.
