BRAT club enters competitions to compete with the best clubs, with the best athletes all over the country. There is no doubt that we are a friendly and welcoming club, but we strive to be the best that we can be. It is an honour to represent BRAT, and as athletes, you should be giving your all so that you are selected to have the privilege of wearing the BRAT club vest.
What does that mean for you, as parents / athletes? What this means is that we have an expectation for commitment to competition and commitment to training. Our dedicated and experienced coaching team are only permitted (and indeed only have time) to coach a specific number of athletes. If athletes are not committed to both training and competing for BRAT, we may need to politely ask you to step aside to make way for others that are!
The fixtures for league matches are typically provided several months in advance, and we expect all our junior team to compete in all matches except where unavoidable circumstances prevent doing so. This applies to track & field, cross country and sportshall.
Competing for the club
BRAT club is run entirely by volunteers. The volunteers give their valuable time in order to support the club and the sport as a whole. The activities carried out by the volunteers may be easily visible (coaching for example), but there is so much that goes on behind the scene. The wider our volunteer base is, the better we can make the club.
With that in mind, we actively encourage parents to:
1: Get involved with coaching. BRAT club is happy to support sending people on coaching courses. It isn’t a daunting task, and you will be fully supported by the experienced coaches at the club whilst you learn.
2: Become a ‘parent volunteer’. This may be as simple as grabbing a rake and raking the sandpit at training, setting out cones around the track…or even getting involved in team leading at competitions.
3: Get an ‘officiating’ qualification. At league matches, we are awarded points based on the number of officials we are able to provide.
These opportunities would genuinely make a huge difference to the club, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or simply grab one of the existing coaches, we’d love you to get involved!
