Commonwealth Games Medallist to coach at Easter Sports Course
6th February 2017

Giggleswick School has launched new sports courses for 11 – 15 year-olds over the Easter Holidays, to run alongside it’s established Revision Courses.

The school is welcoming Commonwealth Games Decathalon Medallist Jamie Quarry to coach its Athletics Camp, which runs from 4 – 6 April. He will be joined by Alastair Scholey, a former teacher at the school and a UKA Level 3 Athletics Coach.

The course is designed to accommodate all abilities and will be relevant to performance across all sports. The fundamental aspects of running, jumping and throwing will be covered alongside a more detailed analysis of core-strength, balance and coordination. It’s aimed at those hoping to get a taste of Athletics or to develop existing skills.

A Cricket Academy will also run from 11 – 13 April with experienced coaches working with participants to improve individual skills, match-play, drills and technique analysis. The school is often cited as having some of the best Cricket facilities in the region with catching machines and video analysis.

James Wright, Commercial Manager at the school said

It’s a real privilege to be able to work with such highly-qualified and passionate sports coaches and I’m particularly excited that the Athletics Camp will offer the opportunity to work with Jamie Quarry.

Food is provided on each course and residential options are also available. There is a discount for those booking onto both courses with prices starting from £165 for a three-day course. For more information visit
