Qualified Level 1 Soccer Coach:

In 2003 I coached 9 children in soccer between the ages of 5 years and 6 years of age.

Duties included setting up weekly training schedules, techniques, fitness routine and child interaction. Having lots of fun was always on the agenda. After each game I organised a points reward system and presented 3 children each week for these certificates. Every child was rewarded the same amount of prizes throughout the season and as a treat I offered them a treat.

Cub Scout Leader:

In 2008 I carried out duties as a Cub Scout Leader. The ages of the children varied from 5 years to 10 years of age. The Cub Scout group was combined with the Joey Scouts due to the small numbers in each group.

Duties included setting up programs for each week of the school term having a theme night for each week. The program for each theme night is set up in 5-15min timeslots. The activities were always varied throughout the night, each activity age appropriate, scout related and lots of fun.

Joey Scout Leader:

In 2011 I carried out duties as a Joey Scout Leader. The ages of the children varied from 5 years to 10 years of age. The Joey Scout group was combined with the Cub Scouts due to the small numbers in each group.
