LMC Sports Coaching Student Success
As part of their course, the first year HND Sports Coaching students have been involved in a Change for Life event with primary schools from around Lancaster at the University of Cumbria.
Using the university sports hall, the group held inclusive activities for the primary school children. Including dancing and target throwing. Students worked alongside Steve Jamieson the Schools Game Organiser. Steve commented that, “students had been well organised, really enthusiastic especially with some of the children who maybe had learning difficulties, so really well done there. They all looked like they had a really good time, and I couldn't fault them".
University of Cumbria Senior Lecturer for Sport and Physical Activity, Mark Christie, also provided feedback to the group, commenting "They were absolutely fantastic, the eye contact was great, body language was really good, they all settled in really quickly and the atmosphere was great with the music going". He went on to praise the group for using a Q&A to gain their own feedback
Susan from St. Lukes Church of England Primary School in Slyne-with-Hest, brought a group of her students to take part in the event. She said "they have all really enjoyed every activity and the tutors were really good. It was a really good morning and getting the chirldren to try different activities is brilliant".
One HND Sport student commented "it was great to be able to actually use the skills which we have learnt in the classroom in order to gain real life experience.”
Sport and Public Services PAM Jayne Roper said "it is really good that the event allowed the students to repeat their activity four times; they were able to adjust and make changes to their activity continuously and strengthen it each time.”
