New Football Activators at LMC
Two Level 3 in Sport students at LLMC have been engaging learners across college in their roles as FA Football Activators.
Emma Collins and Cameron Neil successfully applied to become FA Activators at LMC and have recently received their Nike sponsored kit from the FA and AoC Sport.
The Activators have developed a range of football related activities which students can access to develop their skills and physical fitness.
Emma delivers a Soccercise class for girls only, an exercise class using footballs, whilst Cameron delivers a range of football sessions including Football Tennis, Mini-games & tournaments and 5-a-side football.
The sessions are available on a Monday morning in the Sports Hall with Cameron and the Dance Studio with Emma and provides learners across college the opportunity to get active by taking part in football based activities. The sessions contribute towards a Sport England strategy called ‘Towards an Active Nation’, which LMC use to provide more accessible opportunities for students to get physically active.
Emma commented “The sessions are designed so that all girls can participate in enjoyable physical activity regardless of their ability level. They are a different type of exercise so there is always something that everyone can work on that suits them. I have really enjoyed designing the soccercise activities and have innovative plans to deliver more sessions”.
Cameron added “I really enjoy planning, organising and delivering the football sessions. The FA Activator role enables me to develop my leadership and communication skills, which will be essential in accessing my future career opportunities”.
Programme Area Manager for Sport at LMC, Jayne Roper, said “It is fantastic to see Emma and Cameron embracing their FA Activator responsibilities. It will enhance their coaching skills and experience greatly, and contribute towards developing essential employability skills. They are providing sessions to encourage all learners at LMC to be active and engage in physical activity which is a great achievement”.
