We need you for cross country – Urgently!

The cross country season is nearly upon us and we urgently require a number of volunteers to assist the existing cross country committee.

Specifically we are looking for people who can help out on the administration side of the organisation registering the athletes, creating the entry lists and issuing numbers etc.

This is NOT an onerous job but it is vital for the smooth running of the Cross Country League.  The volunteers will be required for an initial sign on night 1-2 hours and then for 1-2 hours on the race days.  We are looking for a number of people so the duties can be shared.

If you you can spare a couple of hours each month then please email chairman@IOMAA.info or Andy Fox on andycfox@outlook.com

Thank you in advance.

Chimp Management Workshop: Improving Performance by Understanding the Mind

The CGA is holding another Chimp Management workshop on Saturday 8th July at the Sports Institute from 9:30 – 12:30.

This workshop would be useful for any team managers, coaches, athletes and support staff working towards Gold Coast 2018. Those working with athletes who have the potential to reach future Commonwealth Games may also find it useful.

If you would like to attend this workshop, please contact Richard Sille (headofperformance@iomaa.info) by Friday 7th July.

Improving Performance by Understanding the Mind:
An opportunity to learn how to optimise the performance of yourself, your team or organisation through the powerful mind management model that has helped support the success of Olympic and Professional teams and athletes. The Chimp model is a mind management model based on the neuroscience of the brain. The workshop will aim to develop insight into the human mind and demonstrate skills to manage your own mind more effectively to improve sports performance and quality of life
