Pupils from Smithdon, KES Academy, King's Lynn Academy, St Clements and Springwood participate in umpire course
Students from high schools across West Norfolk completed a Kwik Cricket umpire course led by Norfolk Cricket Board coaches Kevin Denmark and Jason Reynolds.
This course hails the start of a series of courses being made available to students who enrol in the ‘West Norfolk Sports Leadership Academy’ – tennis leaders and sports first aid are to follow over Easter.
The aims of the academy are to track volunteer hours that students from Years 7 to 13 offer when supporting School Sports Partnership primary competitions and events and reward Leaders when they reach milestones of 25, 50 and 75 hours
The partnership are also looking to provide courses for leaders to extend their confidence and knowledge and ultimately provide opportunities to volunteer within the wider community.
Plans are in place to offer support at the GEAR 10k, Holkham Half, Glebe Triathlon and Lynn Junior Parkrun. Prospective sports leaders can apply to join by approaching their PE department or contacting Tracy Bower direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is open to all West Norfolk high school students from Years 7 to 13.
