TOUCHDOWNUK – What we do…
In 2018, our focus has changed from running a league to working more as a Youth Work, investing and encouraging the young people attending our teams and events beyond the on field activity. Whilst we still run scrimmage events, they are now more ‘fun’ orientated with the focus on learning and developing teamwork. We also run a TD-UK joint squad, The Lowland Warriors, who offer friendly competition to British League teams. We also now focus on the 10-17 age group.
Sessions can be non-contact (known as ‘flag’) or fully kitted and offered as a ‘taster’ during school activity weeks or as a one off in curriculum time or on a longer term basis over a number of weeks as required by the community partner. We are looking to source school and community teams wherever possible, using qualified from the local area or helping to facilitate coach training where required.
All coaching volunteers are either fully qualified and insured or working under the direct supervision of coaches who are. The Lead Coach has had regular PVG updates and is a qualified emergency first aider. There is a basic expenses cost to cover ‘taster’ sessions, with all other costs based on the specific details of the programme required.
Contact the Lead Coach by phone on 07900 271056, or be email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to arrange a meeting.
