Leinster TREC Away Day

Posted by TREC Ireland on June 24, 2015 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (0)

 

 

A group from Leinster TREC headed up to Kilkenny West, near Athlone, for

their third annual Away Day on Sunday 21st June. This was a training and

practice day held at Murphys' farm, where virtually every PTV obstacle is

available. Groups of three riders had an opportunity to practice obstacles

themselves, and to have their MA canter and walk timed by Leinster TREC

members on the ground. There was also a 50m marked corridor where everyone

took it in turns to count their strides in walk, trot and canter. Again

there were Leinster TREC members on the ground to record strides - very

helpful information when measuring out on a POR route!

 

At the lunch break, everyone was treated to a BBQ feast, courtesy of Ann

and Mike Murphy, and it was time to relax and discuss the morning's

activities. Irish and UK maps were also studied and compared, especially by

those heading off to Scotland in August for the TREC GB Championships! The

horses were then tacked up again and each group availed of excellent

obstacle training from Karen Murphy. Riders were able to tackle everything

from one-handed figure of eight to dip to path crossing to hedge. There

were some great combinations of obstacles too - corridor to ditch to

S-bend! Low branches to corridor to tree trunk! It was brilliant fun and

everyone had a great day and learned lots. Very many thanks to all involved

Child Protection Training

Please see below details of upcoming Child protection Training. As always the courses will be held at our head office in Naas, commencing at 6.30pm on each evening. The Code of Ethics Basic Awareness Training costs €20 per person and the Children’s Officer Training Costs €25 per person.

PLEASE NOTE: The Children’s Officer Course has been revised by the Irish Sports Council, this was formally a 6 hour course and has now been reduced to 3 hours. To attend this course, all participants must have complete the Basic Awareness Course beforehand.

Course Dates:

Thursday January 29th 2015 – Basic Awareness Training

Wednesday March 25th – New Children’s Officer Training

Thursday May 7th – Basic Awareness Training.

I have attached application forms for all 3 course dates, I would ask that as the National Children’s Officer of your affiliate, you promote the availability of these courses, and encourage attendance from your members.

In early 2015, the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 is due to commence. This will enforce a legal requirement on all persons working with Children in our sport to hold a valid Basic Awareness Certificate and Garda Vetting Clearance.

Finally, all information is regularly updated on our website in relation to the above. This can be accessed at the following link:
