My wife has roped me in to help run the youth club. What i've done to deserve this I don't know. I used to run the parents support club in the pub but this has been binned by the more 'senior' rank. RHIP, gawd bless her.
So I go along and it is a shambles. Uncontrolled kids fecking about everywhere. The wife was trying to get them to all sit down and have a meeting - I think she got her training in AA. So I pick up a ball and stand in the middle of the gym and got their attention.
To get them started we do "touch all 4 corners when I say go. MOVE!", then it's "twice around my beautiful body", then we had a game of murder ball and then I ran out of things to do. I just had to blag it. One of the helpers thought I was a youth worker. Jeasus!
So, has anyone got any games that they remember / do? Could anyone as their friendly, local PTI for a few? Go on, I dare you...
Someone stands on a horse box at one end of the gym, holding a stick out like a flagpole in front of them. And the participants/kids throw a hoop around, aiming to land the hoop over the end of a stick. They can't move when they've got the hoop, so it's a game of interception and running.
Or you can do crab football, unihoc. Both of them are staple lessons in case I get one dropped on me at the last minute.
There's a great deal of talk about loyalty from the bottom to the top. Loyalty from the top down is even more necessary and is much less prevalent. One of the most frequently noted characteristics of great men who have remained great is loyalty to their subordinates.
Lots of kids enjoying themselves, whilst parents phone lawyers to see how much they can get off you. Take it youve been CRB checked, also checked insurance to see if your covered. Health and Safety devices in place?
If they aint and one breaks a nail, your in da shite.
