Jack Petchey Scheme

This is a recognition award scheme for members aged between 11 and 25. Each month members, parents, coaches etc… will be invited to nominate an eligible member (in the age range and not a previous winner) to receive the award. The purpose of the awards are to recognise those who work hard, show commitment and other positive behaviour characteristics; i.e. it is not simply about being the best trampolinist (that’s what competitions are about) but much more about being a good person. Some winners are also likely to be invited to award ceremonies hosted by Jack Petchey himself (read more about the scheme at http://www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk/)

Each award brings the club £200 in funding (i.e. £2,400 a year) to be spent on anything apart from running costs – i.e. it can be spent on new equipment, training courses etc… and members are encouraged to make suggestions to Dave about what the money could be spent on.

The first set of nominations recently took place and 11 members were nominated. The committee has agreed that the coaches will pick a winner from these nominations and the first winner has been picked and will be announced shortly. For the future feel free to make nominations when the box is placed by the door (Dave has nomination forms with the register) but only one per month per person please. All winners will receive a certificate and a ‘novelty cheque’ showing what they have won for the club and will be featured on the website and notice board.
