Coaching

coachingOur Community Coaching scheme aims to bring together and build strong links between schools and Doncaster Rugby Football Club (DRFC).

I would like to introduce Doncaster Knights Community Fit2Play, a sports coaching organisation run in conjunction with Doncaster Knights Rugby Club. We are fortunate to have full access to Castle Park, a multi-million-pound, state-of-the-art facility as well as fully qualified staff who have a wide range of skills and experience.

We deliver sports coaching sessions to a wide community of schools offering a reliable, high quality standard of service.

Our aim is to increase and sustain participation and enjoyment in PE, Sport and Physical activity, using our motto ‘Investing in Active Lifestyles’ as well as supporting the development of pathways to ensure individuals progress to their full potential.

We offer a full range of services these include- curriculum time coaching (CPD/PPA) support to ‘up skill’ teachers, healthy education programmes, before and after school clubs, holiday camps and fitness sessions. Also our First Team players are involved in the Community Programme giving the pupils a chance to interact and learn from the region’s only professional rugby union side players.

We offer the chance for pupils to participate in many sports and provide them with support to further links with clubs specifically associated with that particular sport, which they may not have previously known about.

We are experienced in four key areas: Games, Physical Education including Gymnastics, Dance and Athletics.

For example: Invasion Games: Contact Rugby (KS3 and above) Tag-Rugby, Basketball, Football, Netball, Lacrosse, Hockey...etc

Alternative Sports : Orienteering, Dodgeball Tchoukball, Mat ball, Boccia, Bowls, Tag American Football, Danish Long Ball, Tri Golf, etc.

Net and Wall Games: Table Tennis, Tennis, Badminton, Volleyball, etc.

Striking and Fielding Games: Rounders, Cricket, Baseball, etc.

For our younger children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 our Level 2 Multi Skills coaches teach the basic skills of moving, running , jumping, catching and throwing . These skills being the foundation blocks for specific sports as children progress later into Key Stage 2.

Funding Applications

With school budget becoming ever tighter Doncaster Knights Community Fit2Play provide assistance with the process of funding applications for sports related investment. This includes each stage of the bid, from application to purchase and the delivery of sessions. We have already been successful with applications from schools such as Town Fields and Lakeside Primary.

If you would like to discuss your school’s coaching needs, please do not hesitate to contact myself for a meeting at your school. We also offer a free coaching session to show case what we offer.

We look forward to working together in 2018/19.

Kind regards,

Stewart Cullen
