Redpath Albion/Pilmeny Sports Academy
Redpath Albion/Pilmeny Sports Academy

15/16 February. ....Big weekend for our volunteer coaches as they head to East Lothian for the SFA 1:2 Coaching Course, being held over two days 6 hours each day. The 12 hour course is a mandatory requirement of the SFA coaching pathway. All our Academy coaching teams are unpaid volunteers and the commitment and dedication to time spent in development of our young players can’t really be measured in monetary terms. However, if local authorities/Scot Gov were required to cover hourly costs, based on youth worker rates @ £12.30 per hour, the costs would be significant. Our volunteers commit approx 5 hours per week, sometimes more, to the development and promotion of healthy lifestyles for local young people, with individual health and well-being, a core element of the Academy. Our team of 15 volunteers, if paid, would cost local authorities/Scot Gov almost £1,000 per week. Good luck guys and our thanks and appreciation are conveyed by everyone associated with the Academy Clan......
