For the third year running NUKEM at Dounreay, has not only supported but increased its contribution to the coaching grant of the Caithness Sports Council.

The cheque for 2,000 was presented to Caithness Sports Council Chairman Roger Saxon (right in picture) by NUKEMs Director of Operations & Commercial, Keith Collett.

NUKEMs Head of Site at Dounreay, Alan Gerrard said, We are delighted to support the Caithness Sports Council in this way. It is important to have qualified coaches in clubs who can train and develop individuals who wish to participate in sport either recreationally or competitively. Voluntary sports clubs are constantly faced with increasing costs in training coaches and we hope this support goes some way to assist them.

Roger said, Once again, I would like to thank NUKEM for their generous support for sports coaching in Caithness and for an increase on last years contribution.

Coaching is about introducing people to sport and developing individuals and teams to perform at the highest level of their ability. Success in sport generates self confidence in individuals and local pride and encourages others to take up healthy pastimes. Without effective coaching, many of activities would simply stop. So we are very grateful for this support from a local company. The Sports Council is always looking for new ways to assist volunteers to run local sports activities. The money will be put to good use.

The Caithness Sports Council is organising a two-day generic Coaching Processes Course on 10th and 11th March 2007. The course is aimed at coaches (competition and recreational) involved in all sports who wish to develop their coaching skills. Also being organised, on 4th March, is an emergency first aid course. To reserve a place on either course, please contact Ken Nicol (Tel: 01847 831508) or email paddler@downtoncottage.fsnet.co.uk for an Application Form
