Goal Setting with Girls Win

Goal Setting with Girls Win


In February, all of our Girls Win clubs took part in short-term goal setting workshops. This is the first stage in empowering young women with a disability to think more positively about their future. Goal setting is a huge part of the Girls Win programme, developing prospects for the future from short, through medium, and to long-term goals. With support from some volunteers from our sponsors Investec, in this early stage the young women set achievable goals for the next day, the next week and 2 weeks’ time. The workshops were a great introduction to goal setting for the groups and the Investec volunteers added great value and experience. Bring on the next set of workshops in April.

In addition to this, the Girls Win group in Sutton took part in an evening of filming with Parasport. Parasport is an inclusive activity finder website launched by Paralympics GB.  Their ambition is to create the UK’s biggest fun and vibrant community for players, parents and coaches to share their experiences of para sport, and find useful hints, tips and information on what’s happening near you. This includes in depth listings and all the information you need to connect to local inclusive opportunities. They awarded Girls Win, club of the month and have released the video and an editorial on Girls Win for the month of February. The young women who attended on the night so were so happy and excited. They were very confident and positive towards the Parasport team and did themselves proud! Check out the film here.

Job Alert! Walking Cricket Coach

Walking Cricket Coach

The Change Foundation

One session a week

£50 per session includes set up, delivery and mixing with group afterwards. Contracted on self- employed basis

The Change Foundation, a charity that uses sport and dance to change the lives of young people is looking for an experienced cricket coach to run a new weekly walking cricket session for over 55’s men and women. The session will be run at The Cricket Centre in Plough Lane, Wallington Surrey SM6 8JQ where we have good indoor and outdoor facilities. We already run a successful weekly walking football session and are looking to build on this by introducing a new sport.

Walking cricket is a slower version of cricket that uses a softer ball and where players can’t run.

The coach will plan and lead a 1.5 hour session with fun warm up exercises and games to build fitness and cricket skills and communication in the group. An important aspect of the sessions is the friendship and socialising therefore it is essential that the coach always stays afterwards for a chat and a cup of tea with the group.

We are looking for an experienced, qualified cricket coach who would enjoy the challenge of working with a new version of cricket and with an older group.

We are looking to start sessions during the day in March. The day and time are to be agreed.

If you are interested in applying please send your cv and a covering letter to office@thechangefoundation.org.uk asap and at the latest by 28 th February 2018.
