Opportunity for young people to gain a sports coaching qualification

The chance to gain a sports coaching qualification is among the opportunities up for grabs to young people in Inverclyde over the summer.

Inverclyde Council’s Active Schools/Sports Development has teamed up with local clubs and organisations to offer a range of activities during the school holidays.

They include an intensive week-long SCQF Level 5 in Sports Leadership course where students will be able to develop their knowledge, skills and experience in coaching a range of sports.

Education & Communities Convener Councillor Jim Clocherty said: “Sports plays a key part in improving health and of course it can be great fun. Everyone can benefit from expert coaching and programmes like this can only boost the number of quality coaches in Inverclyde and to encourage more people to take part in sport.”

Other summer camps include sessions at Fort Matilda and Ardgowan Tennis clubs where young people of all ages can take part in matchplay, fun games and coaching sessions.

Greenock Wanderers are currently hosting workshops from passing, catching and kicking a rugby ball to tackling and tactical aspects of the game.

Notre Dame is the venue for netball where top coaches will take teams through the drills and skills of the game and also for Girl Power, She Leads – an opportunity for girls in P7-S2 to try gymnastics, sports acro, fitness, dance and team games alongside team building activities and team games.

Councillor Ronnie Ahlfeld, Inverclyde Council’s Sports Champion said: “I would encourage young people to sign-up to these courses and take advantage of expert coaching combined with the first class leisure facilities we now have across Inverclyde. It is a great way to spend the summer holidays learning new skills and of course making new friends.”

Name that Statue!
What will his name be?

Friends of Wemyss Bay Station are looking for a name for the statue that was unveiled on Saturday 13th May and are inviting suggestions from users of the station and pier.

The statue shows a boy heading off on holiday, with his model yacht and fishing line. A reason should be given as to why a proposed name is appropriate.

The suggestions will be shortlisted at the end of June. There will then be a public vote to decide which name is chosen.

Suggestions can be made by dropping in a note at the station bookshop, by emailing Friends of Wemyss Bay Station or through our Facebook page.

The statue was unveiled on Saturday by John Yellowlees, who was in charge of station adoption at ScotRail until his recent retirement. Over fifty local people turned up for the event, despite the wet weather.
