PSYCHO SKWERLZ – WEEKLY UPDATE 14 MAY 2019

THURSDAY TRAINING CANCELLED

Due to the main key holders all taking part in the Kinnoull Hill Race, unfortunately no one else has volunteered to take ownership of the keys and open up the hall therefore we have no alternative but to cancel Thursday’s training.

The next event in our GP is the Kinnoull Hill Race this Thursday. (Entries closed) with a great turnout of Skwerlz expected.

Duration: 1 day

Places left: 24

Venue: Craigswood Sports Centre. Livingston

Tutor: Jaz Sandhu

If anyone is interested then please let either myself or Club Welfare Officer Nessie Kirkbride know.

 

We’ve had at least two positive enquiries and welcome anyone who wishes to undertake this course which benefits both the club and the individual. We will reimburse you the Course fees of £95 plus travel expenses.

 

You don’t have to be a fast runner to be a Jog Leader – in fact some of our best Jog Leaders are very new to jogging themselves and remember just how it feels to start for the first time. The most important thing is that you have lots of enthusiasm for inspiring others to get active, and stay active.

To become a Jog Leader you need to attend a one-day training course which covers everything you need to know, from the warm-up to the cool-down. As well as learning about jogscotland‘s gradual fitness programmes, you’ll cover other useful topics including promoting your group, risk assessment, and helping people overcome common barriers to starting exercise – such as lack of confidence, perceived lack of time, lack of support etc.

The one-day course typically lasts from around 9am to 5pm, though exact timings may vary on each course. It includes both practical and classroom sessions. The course fee is £95.

Once you have passed the course:

  • You will be able to set up your own jogging group using the jogscotland name
  • Your group will be advertised on our Group Finder
  • Your sessions will be covered by our insurance
  • You can contact our team at jogscotland HQ any time for help and advice
  • You will have access to the jogscotland Jog Leader group on facebook, where you can receive advice, support and friendship from other leaders.
  • You will receive access to useful online resources via UCoach, the UK Athletics coaching resource.
