It's been a while since we wrote a blog and a lot has been going on here at AAAsports. This week alone, we are hosted the Tyne and Wear Schools Finals. It was a great Event showcasing the hard work of school students who are involved in Trampolining. We had a few members from AAAsports entered which was great to see! Well done to everyone who took part!!
We have also been planning for Assessment Week which takes up a lot of our time. Hopefully our new system will make things a lot more accurate for all our Members! Assessment week takes place every 8-9 weeks and it's a time where Members can showcase what they have been learning and earn badges for their hard work. Sometimes Members don't achieve their badge, but that's okay, some of the badges are really hard and you can always try again next time! Assessment Week starts on the 24th November and finishes on the 30th November. Badges are available to purchase from Satellite Venues for 2 weeks after this. After that, they are only available to purchase at AAAsports Sunderland.
For anyone who has passed a badge in Trampolining, you will also be able to purchase your badge! All badges are £5 and can be bought at the start of your Class – Good Luck!!
In addition to this, we have started preparing for the Christmas party and fancy dress parties! This is our favourite time of the year!!! For those who weren’t here last year, for one week we dress up as anything we want and play lots of games on the trampoline, the air track and the apparatus, and best of all- lots of sweeties!! We have had Members dress up as Rubix Cubes, Elf, Micky Mouse, Super Hero’s, Elmo and so much more! It doesn't have to be Christmas related,
We also have the Christmas party on the 17th December. This was a great addition to the programme last year. In this party, you get to dress in your sparkly dresses or favourite shirt. We play party games, dance to disco music and sometimes, it even snows!!!! Last year, Santa came to see everyone...I wonder if he will come this year? The Christmas party is at AAAsports Sunderland with the time being released in the Weekly Newsletter.
The Weekly Newsletter goes out to all Members every Friday afternoon. It lets all our Members know what is going on at AAAsports, upcoming Events and any offers we have. If you aren’t receiving this, email membership@AAAsports.co.uk to get added back onto the mailing list!
This is on top of the new Membership system and taking on a new apprentice. You might have seen Kane around helping out on the reception desk and taking photos. Soon we will have another apprentice and a host of new coaches from January when we run the Coach Education Programme for the 4th year. AAAsports are dedicated to providing training in a range of areas - from learning to Coach, to customer service skills, to dealing with the shop and organising events, the list is endless. The apprenticeship is a great opportunity for those who want to learn while they work (and want to be part of a great team)!
The Coach Education Programme is an amazing opportunity for members of the community to get into the sport. We are very proud of this programme. It has helped a lot of people and gained us some amazing Coaches! It's not too late to apply. If you are 16+ and want to become a Coach, send your CV into membership@AAAsports.co.uk by the 24th November.
As for the new Membership process- this needs to be completed by the 15th November! This system is operated by British Gymnastics so unfortunately, we can't help as much as we would like. However, if you are struggling with it, speak to a Coach who can walk you through how to do it or alternately, you can contact British Gymnastics!!
Finally, we have a great offer running at the AAAsports Shop! From just £35, you can purchase a AAAsports Training Leotard and a pair of shorts!! The Training Leotards are unique to AAAsports and come in colours red, black and shinny white. You can purchase this amazing offer at AAAsports Sunderland OR check out our shop online by clicking here!
