This last Wednesday saw a team from the Cornish Pirates visit the Isles of Scilly to lead a Coaching Clinic.
Participants of the day were 45 enthusiastic Year 3, 4 and 5 children from the Five Islands Academy, taking part in sessions that incorporated various skill and game zones for the youngsters to showcase their talents. It was a very enjoyable afternoon, especially seeing the Cornish Pirates players interact on the sports field with the children.
Travelling on the “Scillonian III”, the group were ably led by Sam Teasdale (Community Engagement Manager), and included players Dan Koster, Tom Cowan-Dickie, Marlen Walker and Dan Lee. The crossing made for a comfortable trip, with a pod of Dolphins adding to the iconic views.
Martyn Songhurst, Head of PE at the Five Islands Academy, commented:
It was great to welcome back the Cornish Pirates to Five Islands Academy where they ran a coaching session for our Year 3, 4 and 5 pupils.
This latest visit builds on the strong bonds already had with the club and we look forward to more events in the future.
Special thanks are expressed to the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, Hemingways (Kenya), and Nick George of the Mermaid Inn (St. Mary’s) for supporting this inaugural event.
The Cornish Pirates are also keen to further expand their activity within the Cornish Community. For information about School Rugby Programmes and Cornish Pirates’ Community Multi-Sport involvement in general, please contact Sam Teasdale, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
