Other news
Change for Life
Several schools have previously attended the change 4 life section of the level 3 school games at Leeds Beckett and had a fab time.  There is a place available for a school to attend this summer – July 1st.  if you wish to take a group (I think it is 10) please let me know.  It is for children who are less active and is a mixture of different activities – not competitive.  I will give priority to schools which have not  been before, but don’t let that put anyone off putting their school forward.
Membership 2019-20
Thanks to Netherhall JS and Woodley who have both already returned their slips.  If you can please push to get these back to me by next Friday, I would be very grateful as it helps with planning next year and determines whether or not we all have jobs in September!!!
Wildcats update
There are now 6 Wildcats sessions up and running.  I am still trying to organise a coach for one at Grange Moor on a Tuesday.  If anyone knows any coaches who may be interested, please let me know.  Details of the sessions are available on-line and girls from any school can attend.  Parents need to register the girls on the website.  I will send an e-mail to all girls already registered by paper to ask the parents to do this. New girls can start at any point – please do not turn anyone away!
Glenroyd girls football
I have attached a leaflet about a new opportunity for girls football.  It has come to me via a Wildcats coach so it would be good to promote amongst the girls.  It is base at Leeds Road PF.  Please pass it on to as many as you can.
Girls football teams
If you know of any girls football teams in the area, please pass details on to me so that I can promote them to the Wildcats centres. Thanks

Please ensure that you complete this as soon as possible.  Let me know if you need any support.
Facebook and Twitter
I would be very grateful if you would send out the SPIN facebook and twitter details to parents and if you would follow SPIN as well. Let’s get the message about participating in physical activity out as far and wide as possible.
Sports Quotation of the Week
Everything can’t go perfectly. It’s all about how you adapt from those things and learn from experiences, learn from mistakes.
