Sports Hall Athletics

We are looking at expanding our very successful primary level programme, by piloting it in 4 post-primary schools in Clare, focusing on 1st and 2nd year pupils. The FREE programme focuses on athletic skills & physical activity in a safe and enjoyable way, while catering progressively for the needs of the developing pupil. The wide range of activities & events within Sportshall incorporate and encourage the development of the core fundamental physical skills at the heart of the secondary curriculum. Provision will be made for inter-school competition in November of which there will be four categories:

· 1st year girls/ 1st year boys (8 per team)

· 2nd year girls/ 2nd year boys (8 per team).

(schools will enter a minimum of 1 team per category)

Support will be offered to participating schools through training, equipment loan, and human resources where possible. 

 This programme is full for this term and will reopen to interested school in September 2019

Youth Sports Leader

Sports Leadership 1 is a nationally recognised qualification that enables successful learners to assist in leading purposeful and enjoyable sport/physical activity, under direct supervision. 

Awards & Qualifications

The majority of the qualifications are practical based – learners learn more so by doing rather than through written work.

Assessment is made upon a learner’s ability to lead and demonstrate their leadership skills for a certain period of time, within a specific setting.

How the course is delivered:

We deliver the course within the school over three full school days. The course is split half and half between classroom based theory/ practical and hall/outdoor based practical learning. Sessions are comprised of a mixture of discussion, exploration and practical learning. On the final day, pupils are marked on their leadership skill in delivering a practical physical activity/ sports session to their peers.

Qualifications in Sports Leadership will: 

·         Prepare students to become more confident and self-assured

·         Equip students with behaviours and attitudes they need for the next stage of their

          development

·         Develop desired character traits and behaviours in students

·         Support students’ Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development

·         Improve student character traits

·         Increase academic attainment and engagement in core-curriculum subjects

·         Provide an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning
