Walk series moves to Whitby


Whitby WalkWhitby walk png

Following on from the questionable health benefits of the Gallon Walk earlier in the summer, there was decent challenge in September’s walk from Whitby. Everyone looked full of cheer at the start but this was significantly challenged with almost constant fog and that rain that makes you wet never far away. Not helping was the regular drip feed of runners doing the 62 mile trek from Guisborough to Filey.

Anyway having broken the back of the walk, the day dried, the sun soothed and fog and spirits lifted coming into Saltburn before the victory stretch to the club. The mist must have hidden large numbers of walkers as once back at the club around treble the number of people spotted on the walk shared in the celebrations and food.

Special thanks go to Paul and Debbie Wilson for the remarkable cruelty of meeting us in their van every couple of miles just to gloat and also to Nikki Smith for organising it all and the numerous folk who chipped in with food for the night. There was even a positive contribution to club funds from it all.

Final word must go to the two nippers, Greg Wass and Sean Maley, both having walked further than they’ve ever done before and both completing the full quest.

Level Two Coaching


Level 2Level 2Level 2 v2Level 2 v2Level 2 v2Level 2

 

 

 

 

 

Redcar has been very fortunate to have just hosted the North East’s only publically advertised Level 2 coaching course this year. An example of how rare these courses are can be seen by attendees coming from as far as Essex and the course was fully subscribed.

The programme involves four full days split over two weekends. Attendees have the first weekend learning, then a month to compile numerous proofs of coaching individual and group sessions as well as doing a referees exam, before returning for the second weekend which includes a full day’s practical examination of on-court coaching by two England Squash coaches.

Amongst the group were two coaches from Redcar – Maria Maley and Sam Hill – both of whom passed, so many congratulations to them. The qualification, which is highly updated to be based on the new philosophy of the five pillars of squash, allows people to coach up to and including county level.

Nominations, Leagues, Masters, Juniors


The new season is appearing on the horizon. Liam has taken up the leagues after Jim’s distinguished reign. Please tick your name on the sheet at the club if you want entering into the leagues again or if you want to join for the first time – good to see new entries already.

Team nominations will slightly change this year for the September nominations. I’ve posted them as they were last season and anyone wishing to challenge higher can challenge up to 3 places above themselves. (If they win that challenge they can then challenge a further 3 places up, etc). The first set of challenges have been recorded and nominations updated appropriately. Anyone interested in playing for the teams who haven’t done so before, be delighted to have your name down on the board too.

For any players over 35, the County Masters is coming up in October. The age groups go up in fives eg Over 35s, Over 40s, etc and it’s a great competition. It’s hosted at Yarm this year and you’d be very welcome. Use the link to enter: http://www.dcsm.org.uk/

Junior coaching restarts on Saturday 30th – older players at 9:30 , younger at 10:30. New juniors very welcome, free for first two weeks, then £1 a week thereafter. Contact Dominic on 07734985111 if interested
