- Activator Manual - containing useful advice and guidance on
setting up basic athletic activity programmes as part of your community
sports project to develop individual and team skills.
See example pages.
- A set of Run, Jump, Throw activity / game cards to develop individual and team skills.
See example cards.
- A Sportshall and QuadKids Competition Manual.
The resource includes the Sportshall and QuadKids Manuals, with a certificate of attendance at the back of each pack if you have received this resource as part of a formally delivered workshop. The Resource includes top tips for setting up basic informal athletics activity and short form competitions in your local project, particularly for those with limited experiences and for those working with minimal equipment and in restricted facilities.
This is NOT a licensed coaching workshop or resource. It is hoped that attendees of the workshop, or those simply picking up and using the Resource, will be motivated to pursue their leadership and coaching education by following the formal UKA coaching and leadership education pathway.
Activators can use the Resource to explore the basic principles of warm-ups, cool-downs, running, jumping, throwing and relays. This will support you in planning and developing activity, including set-up, top tips for managing groups and the use of equipment. Further contacts are provided in the participant resource pack which will help to develop the Activator's technical knowledge and skills beyond attendance on a workshop.
England Athletics will be offering some activator workshops or short courses in the coming months, prioritising the national Street Games community project network across England. Details of these workshops will be relayed in due course.
