Park Life Heavitree 2018 Tournament:

Following its successful inauguration event last year, the Parklife Heavitree grass tournament returns on Saturday 30th June. Once again it will combine with the Sports in the Park event, which has events from Exeter Chiefs rugby and Exeter City Football amongst several others, so there will be plenty going on during the afternoon.

Entries are now open for 2018.

We are hoping to expand the event from last year and offering an early bird discount to those entering before 30th May.

Good Afternoon, we are emailing you with a new training opportunity from Active Devon.

Tuesday 6th March 6pm – 9pm, Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre, Exeter £20

Learning techniques to manage the behaviour of young people can significantly improve the quality of your coaching sessions

Effective behaviour management is not only about dealing effectively with problems when they occur, but developing the ability to predict and therefore plan to prevent problems occurring in the first place.

Designed and delivered by Chris Partridge, an experienced teacher, multi-qualified sports coach and behaviour management expert with over 10 years experience of working with young people. This course is suitable for any coach or other adult working with young people aged 3 to 18 in any sport of physical activity.

By attending the course, you will be able to;

– identify and understand various triggers which may lead to poor behaviour during coaching sessions

– reflect on their existing approach to managing poor behaviour and how successful this is in different situations

– develop a range of short term behaviour management tools which can be adapted for dealing with various issues

– consider how long term improvements in behaviour can be instigated through effective session planning.

Kind Regards, 
The Active Devon Training Team

Park Volleyball – Heavitree

It’s always good to see new summer events and the various formats of our sport being used. Park Life Heavitree is an Exeter base community volunteer group and this years they added the sport of volleyball to their summer sport event. In the lead up to the event, Peryanaden Coolen ran and coached a number of Saturday afternoon sessions in the Park which proved popular.

For the tournament event, teams travelled from as far away as Cornwall and Wiltshire to take part, Torexe VC also hosted a junior come and try it session which proved popular throughout the day.

Other sports were also represented during the day including the Exeter Chiefs inflatable Rugby obstacle course, the Exeter City free kick Football dart board and Exeter Basket ball. The whole event was free to all kids including ice creams and smoothes and it was an excellent alround success.

After a long hot sunny day, it was kernow who took the main prize, more photos at photo-album  and few Park Volleyball Guidelines at:
