Morning everyone
Another good session at Tigers last week. All coaches are back this week with some further stubbie work on offer.
Keep doing the snow dance and we could be experiencing some of the real stuff on Thursday. at the moment it is snowing heavily outside the classroom window :-).
Congratulations to Andrew Turns (our coach) who is now been offered the opportunity to coach and is off to Norway with myself for the first week of English Schools Senior Training. I am now also doing both weeks of the schools training in Norway. Unfortunately it will likely mean that there is no Tigers sessions for 2 weeks in February on the 14th and 23rd. However I will confirm that at a later date. It is obviously fantastic experience for both Andrew and myself so ultimately gives us even more experience of working with our national teams which all club members will benefit from.
A few of our members are off on there skiing holidays either as I write or very soon. Enjoy your trips everyone and keep working on those elements you have been using over the last few months.
