The academic year will see the start of a unique and inspirational programme for our pupils to participate in, with current high profile coaches and performers visiting Lincoln Minster School.
To date we have sessions planned for pupils to take part in with our Sports Ambassadors every half term with the aims to see what it takes to be an elite performer, training methods and to look at the psychology traits needed to being an elite performer. Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in sessions with the Sports Ambassadors as the coach.
The programme starts with the visit of Andy Halliday on the 25th of September. Andy is the current Hockey Great Britain Men’s Manager and Head Coach to the England Indoors teams. He will be ably assisted by Zach Wallace, a current National League player with Surbition HC and who is also training with the England Senior Men’s team. Zach has been identified as future Hockey star and one of the youngest ever Hockey performers to receive Lottery Funding to support their training.
There is also a planned evening session for parents to come and talk to Andy and Zach about their experience of coaching, how to support young performers, as well as, how to cope with studies and playing at an elite level.
More information about this will be announced out shortly.
