A fantastic opportunity has arisen for all SDC and SES students to get involved with the delivery of the Golden Cricket project run in conjunction with Lincolnshire Cricket.

Golden Cricket is essentially table cricket delivered to clients within care homes around Lincoln. The activity is social, fun and gets participants out of their seats to engage in physical activity.

What can Lincolnshire Cricket offer you:

– Free Table Cricket Coach course & qualification – DBS (formally CRB) checks

– Real life experience delivering in the field which will enhance your résumé

If you are interested in this opportunity please get in touch with: Andy Hibberd | Cricket Development Officer

For those interested in gaining a recognised governing body award to add to your CV, Paul Murgatroyd will be running a Teaching Orienteering (Parts 1 & 2) award on Weds 2nd & Weds 9th April (9:30am-4:30pm both days, during the Research & Self-Directed Learning weeks).

The two parts will cost a total of £50, inclusive of all resources and certification, and is very good value! If you are interested in this opportunity, and to reserve your place, please email Paul at by the end of Friday 24th January- places will operate on a first come, first served basis.

All teams train at the Lincoln Christ Hospital School, Wragby Rd, Lincoln, LN2 4PN.

U7s, 8s,9s at 6pm-7pm

U10s, 11s at 7-8pm

Should you not have a current football coaching qualification then the club may be happy to pay for you to attend a local course but this is obviously dependant upon the time you can commit.  Ideally they are looking for students to commit over the next 18-24 months.  Home matches are at Yarborough Leisure Centre on Sundays. Attendance at weekend games is not essential however.

Should you be interested then please  contact Alex Blackett ( stating your proposed commitment, preferred age group to coach along with any football coaching experience you may have which may include coaching qualifications.

We have been asked to pass on an invitation from some SDC Yr 3 students who are looking for people willing to help deliver a multi-skills project. More details for this opportunity – which is only open to SDC Yr 1 and 2 students, I’m afraid – are as below. The deadline is January 17th, so move fast!

“We are currently year 3 students studying the Contemporary Issues in Physical Education module. As part of this module we are required to organise and carry out two multi-skills festivals around the Lincolnshire area. As you are aware competition in the sporting field is tough, we are providing an opportunity for you to gain some coaching experience and additional volunteering experience for your CV.

We are looking for 10 confident and reliable coaches to assist with these festivals. You will be required to lead and monitor a group of year 1 children around the stations.

The dates, locations and times are as follows:

Monday 20th January, 2014 – Cherry Willingham Community School (10.00-11.30am)

Friday 24th January, 2014 – The Priory City of Lincoln Academy (10.00-11.30am)

However we will be required to be there from 9.15am, should you require transport we have limited positions we can offer to commute with us. However if you and your friends have transport available and travel together this would be easier. For those who struggle with transport we will be in the sports centre ready to leave at: 8.30am as us organisers are required to be there early to set up.

If you are interested please contact Kay Noble ( with your availability for either of these dates before Friday 17th January, 2014.

Many Thanks,

Year 3 Project Team,
(Kay Noble, Elizabeth Kirk, Hannah Laws, Emma James and Kate Voice). “
