Scouting Supporting The Community
Several members of the 14th Richmond (Viking Scout River Centre) plus the ACC (S) Robin Burr, helped run a series of coaching courses for Bamber Gascoigne's Skerries4schools charity, having embarked first completed a British Rowing Level 2 coaching course.
The schools course culminated in a regatta for over 100 school children from Richmond Upon Thames on Wednesday 16th at Richmond.
The schools course first involved several weekends of training with British Rowing then day time coaching sessions for non rowers that were also not sports minded and non competitive and included children with special needs.
Our ACC (Activities) Robin Corti, was delighted to coach an "ugly duckling" team from Twickenham Academy through to becoming "Swans" in 1st place through their own efforts. The Academy staff and students were very grateful to have been able to achieve so much in a short time.
