Celebrating Armed Forces Day
It goes without saying that the Armed Forces do a fantastic job looking after the security of our country. The Coaching Academy will be supporting Armed Forces day in our own special way at our next accelerator weekend at Latimer. Find out how and how you can get involved.
Although Armed Forces Day officially takes place on Saturday 30th June, The Coaching Academy will be celebrating the countdown this Saturday at Latimer Place. If you are attending Latimer on Saturday 16th June then do look out for our display (although we’re pretty sure you won’t be able to miss it!).
As approved ELCAS suppliers, The Coaching Academy are passionate about supporting the Armed Forces. It is also a topic that is particularly close to our MD, Bev James’ heart.
On the day you will be able to meet 2 of our successful coaches who came to coaching from an Armed Forces background (huge thanks go out to Jacky Leonard and Paul Pitchfork for giving up their time to support the cause!). Hear their stories and do go and say hello to them as they will both be available from 11am to 4pm to share their experiences and knowledge.
The Coaching Academy Need You!
Jacky and Paul will also be on hand to help The Coaching Academy launch our Coach for Every Hero Initiative. Can we count on your support?
A Coach for Every Hero will be led by our MD Bev James and aims to provide armed forces service leavers and ex service men and women access to a pool of exceptional coaches. Coaching will be undertaken on a voluntary basis (ideally a minimum of 2 hours per month) and you will be helping our heroes adjust to and enter civilian life.
At this stage we are simply gaining an expression of interest in launching our Coach for Every Hero campaign. Do fill out an expression of interest card on Saturday at Latimer Place if you’re there and interested in being part of our initiative.
If you are interested in giving back to our Armed Forces but won’t be attending Latimer on Saturday then you can also use the form below to express your interest.
