Community Update – Cornish Pirates Are Back!
Since early July, when the Department for Education released their guidance with regards to Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity, the Cornish Pirates prepared for their return to the community and are now very excited to get back.
The first Primary Programme sees the Cornish Pirates based in the Truro area, with participating schools receiving their ‘Cornish Pirates’ Primary Pack’. Community Engagement Manager Sam Teasdale has commented:
The packs include COVID-specific risk assessments, our COVID-core values, school-specific aims and session commitments.
At this time, we would also like to express a big thank you to all of the school staff we have liaised with, who have ensured a safe and successful first week back!
The Cornish Pirates vision for their ‘2020-21 Primary Programme’ will echo previous years:
* A 6-week programme of high quality and fully inclusive coaching, offering a unique opportunity for teacher CPD.
* Each session will consist of various ‘Game Zone’ and ‘Skill Zone’ activities which can be adapted to align with current guidelines.
* To conclude there will be an ‘In House’ Festival with Cornish Pirates players interacting as positive male role models, by refereeing and coaching.
* Constant promotion of healthy lifestyle choices and character development through Rugby’s core values (Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship).
For further information on any such programmes please contact Community Engagement Manager Sam Teasdale – Telephone 07889 536861 or Email [email protected]
