On Friday 31st January we held our Secondary Leadership Day at the Dolphin Centre. We had Young Leaders from Carmel College, Wyvern Academy, Haughton Academy and Polam Hall School who took part in 4 workshops on the morning, these were based on Role of the Sports Leader, Competition Formats and Scoring, Officiating and Controlling a Game and Adapting Activities. On the afternoon the 4 schools attending plus Longfield Academy all focused on a Specific Sport; Longfield – Table Tennis, Carmel College – Cricket, Haughton Academy – Boccia and Polam Hall – Change for Life. Wyvern Academy and Carmel College also received some training previously focusing on Tennis and Aquatics. It was a very enjoyable day for the leaders, they were all engaged, all gained good knowledge and all now feel more confident to lead at events, we are very excited to have them at our future events. Special thanks goes to all 5 Schools plus Darlington School Sport Partnership, Emma Turnbull – Stockton School Game Organiser, Aimee Dunnabie – Move More Team, Oliver King – Durham Cricket Board, David Nowtch – Darlington Dolphins, Dave Bullen – Durham School Aquatic Development Manager and Claire Smith – Lawn Tennis Association who all delivered and helped make the day a great success.
