Thursday bulletins are carrying on....

1) Sinners Sport: 25th May (Next wednesday!)

2) Pre-Season: Please refer to Rona's last message from Deb's about pre-season (either email or on CMP) - if you are still not on the list and you want to do it, please get an application in as soon as possible.

3) Alumni Newsletter: 
Hey Everyone,


I am starting to put together the Semester 2 News Bulletin for Alumni, and I need your help!  Can every club give me a 100 to 200-word summary of your 2nd Semester Performance? Please include:

·      Your club’s current league

·      Your club’s current score record, current standing, or placement record in any big competition           

·      A brief summary of any outreach your club is doing

·      Any event for the summer or upcoming year, to which you would like to extend an invitation to Alumni. 

·      Current club picture/ action photos of club members (optional)


Please email with your club summary, by the 25th of May.  I would like this from ALL CLUBS, and the sooner you get it to me, the more likely your club will be included in the Bulletin. 


I hope revision and exams are going well!



4) For Goodness Shakes:

We (For Goodness Shakes) have just launched a sporting legacy initiative called the Bring on Tomorrow Foundation in partnership with SportsAid. The Foundation is supporting tomorrows athletes, today by providing funding and an athlete development programme to 7 talented young athletes who have been selected through SportsAid.


We have 3 ‘Elite Mentors’ on board with the Foundation who run training days for the young athletes and will provide advice and guidance throughout the year. These mentors are Liam Tancock, 50m Backstroke world record holder and world champion, Sarah Stevenson who very recently won Gold at the Taekwondo World Championships and Andy Turner, European and Commonwealth 110m Hurdles Champion. These 3 have been chosen as they are competing at the very highest level in their respective sports and are keen to impart their knowledge and experience to the younger athletes.


We have one place left in the foundation which will be won through ‘The Final Place’ competition. Any athlete aged 16-23 may enter the competition by visiting the website and submitting an entry explaining why they should win. They must then recruit as many votes as possible to make it through to the last 10. From the 10 highest voted entries, a judging panel, including the 3 mentors will choose the lucky athlete to fill the final place. The prize includes £1000 funding, training and development days with the Elite mentors, a year’s supply of For Goodness Shakes, Foundation training kit and athlete profile page on the Foundation website. Below is the advert for the competition.


Please visit to find out more about the athletes involved and the competition.

5) Safety Policies: Those that haven't please get them in. 

6) Tier 2: Tier 2 clubs we need: Bank Account details, Safety Policies and Constitutions. 

Good luck with the rest of exams!
