+2 more

 

The group which practices twice a week in partnership with the Route 1 Youth Club and the Tigers Trust, had been practicing hard for 3 months in preparation for the day. The competition was held at the Hull City Hall in front of a large audience; with several different teams competing from across the region.

 The group also took part in several educational workshops during the day and won the award for winning the ‘Health and Fitness’ quiz.

 Dance tutor Kerry worked tirelessly, to choreograph and perfect the routine for the group, and had assistance from fellow staff members: Kayleigh, Sarah and Lorna.

 Kerry (Tigers Trust Kicks Dance Tutor) commented: “It’s really important to set new challenges for the group, they've been really focused for many months. The competition was a great opportunity for the group to display all that hard work and the winning of four awards is the icing on the cake. I’m very proud of all of them and they can hold their heads up high and share their success with everyone across the project”

 All the young people involved had a fantastic experience. Reesha (Kicks Participant) commented:

 “We practiced really hard and had to work as a team, to make sure we were well prepared to do our performance. It was worth it though, as we won four awards and had a great time. It was a long day but really worth all the rehearsals” 

Tigers Trust Kicks activities are FREE to attend for all 12-18 year old young people who may be looking for positive activities in their community. For further details of sessions and venues contact Paul Sarel at the Tigers Trust on 01482 358371.

 

Tigers Trust visit Aldbrough Primary School for ‘Hull City Day’ +

The Tigers Trust recently attended Aldbrough Primary School to get involved with the school’s ‘Hull City Day’.

The day was fully enjoyed by staff and pupils alike, with a wide range of Hull City themed activities taking place. Both the staff and pupils dressed up for the occasion, by wearing either Hull City shirts or black and amber coloured clothing.

With a busy day ahead, the event was split into two parts; the first half of the day saw the pupils get involved in their weekly PE session, which were organised and run by the Tigers Trust coaches.

Two special guests added to the excitement in the second half of the day, as Roary the Tiger and Hull City academy player Josh Clackstone went in goal for the pupils to take shots against them in a penalty shoot-out. Those pupils who scored two penalties were entered into a prize draw, with prizes such as medals, signed footballs and Hull City match tickets handed out to pupils lucky enough to have their name drawn out.

The action packed day was concluded with a chance for the pupils to gain an insight into a potential Premier League star of the future, as the pupils got the chance to get involved with a question and answer session with Josh Clackstone.

Kicks in Newcastle +

A representative team from our Kicks project recently took part in an eight a side football competition hosted by Newcastle United.

Our team was a reward for boys that have consistently shown a positive attitude and behaved well at KC session every Monday evening.

“The boys have been really positive and encouraged other young people from the area to participate in the weekly sessions. The help create a great atmosphere for all who take part, including the staff.” – Kris Walmsley, Tigers Trust Coach

The tournament included Newcastle United, Manchester City, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough. The Tigers representatives performed very well and was a great example for teamwork. They worked hard and managed to reach the final only to be beaten by the hosts in a very competitive game.

"The standard of professionalism and concentration from all clubs were faultless, and everyone put in a lot of effort to help make the Kicks Cup a success.”– Laura Wilson, Newcastle Kicks Coordinator

In addition to the football, all players took part in a hard-hitting drug, alcohol and gang related crime workshop before the tournament. It was delivered by Paul Hannaford,  a motivational speaker who reflects on past experiences to help encourage young people to lead better paths.

Known for his brutal delivery of talks and workshops, Hannaford helped engaged 80 young people by delving into his previous drug habits and criminal behaviour, before demonstrating how he turned his life around and became who he is today. The London-born speaker used graphic images of his injuries and drug addicts to encourage our youngsters to make better life decisions.

He commented, “Brilliant day and well done Newcastle United and everyone who attended. It was very positive and every young man was extremely respectful. I've had dozens of tweets and messages on Instagram even parents have messaged me. This is football in the community and beyond. Looking forward to returning soon.”

Will, aged 15 from the Tigers Trust team said, “It was good to learn about how what paths you can fall into if you get involved with the wrong sort of people, it was quite scary hearing the stories that Paul Hannaford told us. Taking part in Kicks activities keeps us out of trouble and gives us something to do rather than hanging about on street corners and getting bored or causing mischief.”

Kicks is a Premier League funded project for 12-18 year olds, visit the Youth section for more details.

Tigers Trust Coaches complete Association for PE Level 3 Certificate +

Six Tigers Trust coaches have recently completed their 1st4Sport Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of PE and School Sport, with six more coaches due to start the qualification next year.

The coaches who gained the qualification - Richard Dexter, Ollie Ezard, Ed Griffiths, Ryan Pattison, Marc Daddy and Alex Lisney - were all involved in practical assessments at Gillshill Primary School, from which one of the teachers at the school, Hannah Kirman, spoke highly of them.

After working closely with the coaches during their time on the course, she said “It’s such an important qualification and the Tigers Trust coaches have been really easy to work with. The children have thoroughly enjoyed being taught by the coaches.”

During the course, the coaches gained a greater understanding of OFSTED requirements, with the course also highlighting the importance of planning lessons for all, most and some, and setting learning objectives which challenge all pupils, allowing them to achieve their personal best. This helped to improve the coaches’ knowledge of these areas, enabling them to deliver high quality PE lessons in schools.

The course was delivered by Chris Welburn from the FA, who said “It has been a pleasure to work with the staff at Hull City Tigers Trust over the last year delivering the 1st4Sport Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of PE and School Sport. The course was both classroom and practical based and culminated with two observed assessments of the staff members PE delivery. The staff at the Tigers Trust showed enthusiasm and a high level of application throughout the course learning programme and I am pleased to say the first cohort of staff members have successfully achieved the award. I look forward to working with the club going forward and building upon the positive work we have achieved to date.”

School Sports Coordinator Richard Dexter, who also took part on the course, reiterated the idea that the qualification will help to raise the PE lessons quality to an even higher standard, as he said “We are really excited to put our knowledge and skills into practise and we are sure that schools we are working in will see the massive benefits of our staff taking this qualification.”

Testimonials +

Julie Ellis, Head teacher, Thorngumbald Primary

"When we received our Sports Funding in 2013, our priority was how best to use it to improve outcomes for all our children. We decided to invest in high quality coaching from an outside provider to give us the additional provision that we were looking for.

From the start we were impressed with the offer from the Tigers Trust. The multi-skills sessions which we bought into gave each of our children the opportunity to experience physical activity regardless of their own background in sport. In fact this was our prime reason for choosing multi-skills as we wanted to reach out to those children who do not attend sports clubs or play for teams outside of school.

Each class, over the year, received five sessions of multi-skills coaching. Ollie and his Apprentice (usually Matt have been very professional in planning for children from Foundation to Year 6. They have engaged the children in each age group, who look forward to their weekly sessions. The pupil comments in our end of year reports to parents demonstrate how the children have enjoyed the Tigers Trust coaching. Members of staff too have commented on how the sessions have moved their own professional development forward. Most are now using ideas they have gained from observing the sessions and in this way the coaching is promoting a higher level of sustainable expertise within the school.

Many thanks to Tiger Trust- we are already looking forward to next year’s sessions!"

Andy Rhodes, Head teacher, Spring Cottage Primary School.

"At the start of the last academic year (September 2013) Spring Cottage was looking to private sport providers to enhance the delivery of PE lessons and support in our curriculum delivery.

After meeting with the Tigers Trust coaches we were confident they would be able to meet our needs. Throughout the year they have worked with our Year 3 pupils enriching their lessons across a variety of sports. The coaches are clearly confident in the delivery of numerous games activities and the pupils have responded enthusiastically across all sessions. The impact the project has had has been mainly around people motivation and their clear enjoyment of sports. The sessions are lively, maintain good pace and ensure children of all abilities are able to access the curriculum.

We will be continuing our association and the delivery of these sessions again in the next academic year. Throughout the year the Tigers Trust has also supported a number of school events such as Sport Relief and Sport Days and again their involvement has motivated the pupils to participate willingly."
