On Thursday 10th October two coaches from the Crystal Palace Diving Team came to visit Rathfern. The coaches came to tell children more about the sport and ways of getting involved.
The team are always looking for promising young talent, so led 20 minuet sessions with classes in Key Stage 2 to identify any pupils demonstrating lots of the key skills that they were looking for. Sessions were very enjoyable, exploring strength, power and flexibility.
All the children that took part were awarded with an England Talent certificate. Children who were identified will have an opportunity to trial further and be seen by Olympic coaches at the National Sports Centre in Crystal Palace. Letters with further information were given to these particular pupils. If successful children will then be invited to join coaching groups and potentially go on to compete for your school in the London Junior Schools Championships.
Thank you to Crystal Palace Diving Team for opening up a great opportunity for some of our children!
