Cornwall athletics club
We require a new pole vault bed and high jump bed as the existing ones are no longer fit for use. The new equipment will benefit our athletes who we are encouraging to learn the vault and help our ranking athletes to achieve high standards in competition.
- To provide children,young adults and disabled youngsters with a facility to train in all the athletic disciplines which the schools are quite often unable to do.
- To encourage youngsters to take part in competition and mix with other athletes from different clubs. By doing this the youngsters gain confidence which we are sure will benefit them in their schooling and later when the time comes for them to apply for jobs in the work place.
- To visit the local schools and keep them informed of the facilities on offer at our Saturday athletics club and the competitions which the school children can enter. The clubs coaches all give there time and do not get paid. The club produces a monthly newsletter which would provide a good way of notifying the schools of forthcoming events and competitions. Olympic champions all started at school level and perhaps with the right effort we will be able to produce some from Cornwall!
How we will achieve our goals
The award if received would enable the club to purchase equipment the we desperately need to replace, if we cannot get the new equipment that we need we will no longer be able to carry on with the pole vault and high jump, as the existing equipment will no longer meet health and safety regulations.
Where the money will go
We can encourage children from local schools to try out athletics at our club and to mix with other children which will give them confidence in their future schooling and eventuality in their work place.
