ALL COACHES AT ORANGEGROVE AC ARE UNPAID VOLUNTEERS WHO GIVE UP THEIR FREE TIME


We treat all our young athletes the same, regardless of ability, and the core values we promote are those of adoption and inclusion. All our coaching is based on the athlete centered approach.

An athlete centered approach is one in which the needs of the athlete (especially a child, youth or disabled athlete) is placed before everything else… ie. the activity, the competition and coaches goals and ambitions. In this approach the athletes are encouraged to be involved in their own development and empowered to take greater responsibility for it.

The aim of the Juniors Section is;

  • To have fun which is structured around the athlete, whilst at the same time working to help them achieve their potential
  • To provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment where athletes can learn the fundamental skills.

The club is committed to;

  • Give basic instruction in all the Athletic disciplines, where equipment, environment and safety allow.
  • Provide every member with the opportunity to participate in all forms of Athletic activity to;
    • enable them to reach their potential
    • ensure every members contribution, irrespective of ability, will be valued
    • encourage all members to attain a general level of fitness
    • achieve success in Athletic competitions
    • provide a good social environment for youngsters
    • meet establised standards of Athletic achievement
