Calling All Young Athletes

20 Apr


The officials of the club would like to be more aware of the needs of the younger generation who train and race throughout the year.

Therefore this is your chance to let us know what you enjoy about being a member at B&W and more importantly what areas could be better, for example:

  • Club kit: hoodies or sweat shirts?

  • Training venues: Ashton court, Whitchurch, the Downs, indoors at Cardiff, (where’s the best café)?

  • Coaching sessions: which training sessions do you most/least enjoy? Would you like to experiment with a different group?

  • Revamp at the club hut of Whitchurch: Any ideas on what form it should take, i.e. colour scheme or music, should we have athlete friendly drinks and snacks? Would a B.B.Q. be a good idea one evening?

  • Christmas Party: Last year was a great success and the plan is hold another social this year. However it would be great to have your ideas and to see as many of you as possible enjoying yourselves. Prize to the person who sells the most tickets!

  • These are a few examples I’m sure you have plenty more.

How do we plan to implement this?

The ideal situation would be to start up a buddy system whereby one or two athletes talk to the young athletes. They will then report back of any ideas good, bad or extreme, to myself Ali Hurford. I will then pass these ideas to the appropriate officer of the club. What I would really appreciate are a couple of volunteers from the U17/U20 who would consider this role until the end of September. This is a very light-hearted undertaking and should not cause much stress or hassle and to be young athlete’s representative would look good on your C.V.!

Anybody interested please contact Ali Hurford on 0117 9735931
