Tackle safety - an event of some relevence?

A remarkably well-timed evening is coming up in the next few weeks. Given the fairly large injury list built up over the past two games, I hope that many of you may be interested in a evening on "Tackle safety and coaching contact" being run at the club on Monday 11th December (6.30 to 9.00).

Although aimed at coaches, Phil Waters - Letchworth's coaching co-ordinator - has made it clear that he will welcome "all coaches/assistants/budding parent-coaches", so that is pretty much anyone interested in coaching or helping out in any way. Also as its not a formal coaching award course there also won't be a minimum age, so I reckon anyone from the U17s at least could usefully attend, whether or not you are 16 yet.

Even if you don't ever want to become a full coach, being able to help take new girls through the basics of tackling would be very valuable. It might also help you spot poor technique among teammates, and do something about it, before they injure someone or injure themselves.

Let me or Phil know if you might be able to come along so that we have an idea about numbers.
