Panathlon started their Young Leaders Officials Program today at Featherstone High School in West London for the 2012-2013 Panathlon Challenge season. Today was the first of a dozen training days we have lined up over the next 2 months. Over 250 Young Leaders will be involved as Panathlon Young Officials in the 2012/13 Season. Today 16 GSCE students from Featherstone High School and Villers School were involved throughout the training, in preparation for next weeks first Panathlon Challenge Multi-Sports event of the year.
James Tinney said, ” The students grew in confidence throughout the day. I was impressed by their quick grasp of all the sports and their ability to integrate common sense with the rules in to their decisions. It looks like we have another great intake of Leaders from Featherstone and Villers Schools following on from last year. A couple of last year’s students came by and spoke to the delegates about the event next week and how much they will enjoy it .”
