Head Coach Cries....we need more
Article by Alan Penn
Yes Barry cries!
However...... not due to over emotion as of course you were expecting....... but cries of help.
At the recent County Championships we heard our Head Coach spoke of the funding problems that most sports have to develop top athletes. Gymnastics has recently gained an increased profile and momentum so eventually no doubt (maybe after we have a champion !) the sport will receive extra funding. With the push to the next 2012 and sadly through the loss of some long term sponsors there has never been a time when fundraising has been so important. The club wants to grow top champion Gymnasts that love their sport and can remain injury free. Investment into facilities, equipment and top coaches comes at a premium.
Here is the cry to Businesses, Parents and Sporting organisations, give us your time effort and money and partnerships and we will try to give you Champions.
This list is not exhaustive!
A little effort from a lot of people who are passionate about these lads becoming champions can make the difference.
