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

New Secretary Urgently Required

Owing to the resignation of the current secretary, the IOMAA is urgently seeking to appoint a new key team member.

Working on the Executive Committee of the IOMAA, the secretary has responsibility for managing the agenda and taking and publishing the minutes of the bi-monthly IOMAA meetings along with the timely distribution of any emails to the general email inbox.  The secretary’s input into the meetings is very welcome.

This is not an onerous position and should take no longer than 2 hours a week.

If you think you would like to volunteer for this important role please email chairman@iomaa.info.   A full handover will be provided by the current secretary.

If this role isn’t for you but you would like to volunteer some of your time to assist the IOMAA then please get in touch.

Many hands make light work!!

 

Strength and Conditioning Session Coordinator Required.

Isle of Man Athletics urgently require the help of someone to coordinate the strength and conditioning sessions offered through the Isle of Man Sports Institute.

A block of eight strength and conditioning sessions have been booked starting next week (practice week) but we require someone to take on the responsibilities of organising these sessions going forward.

Please note that this is an organisational role which does NOT require specific S&C knowledge.

The role includes:

  • Liaising with IOM Sport and booking the sessions at the institute
  • Promoting the sessions to the athletes (through social media, email etc.)
  • Organising the athletes to attend

Delia Fairclough who is stepping down from the role will provide a full handover.

Please email mail@IOMAA.info if you can help out with this important role.

 

Proposed New IOMAA Structure

Ahead of the IOM Athletics Association (IOMAA) EGM on Monday 23rd January 2017 (to be held at The Hydro Hotel, Queens Promenade, Douglas. Commencing at 7pm ) the current IOMAA committee felt it would be useful to share the new proposed structure for the IOMAA.

If you are interested in any of the roles and would like to know more please email chairman@iomaa.info.

If we can find enough volunteers we are confident that the time commitment for each individual will average no more than 2 hours per week, can you spare 2 hours each week to help ensure that our sport is the best it can be? Parents, athletes, coaches and officials we need your support….. we hope to see you at The Hydro Hotel on Monday.

Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting

An Extraordinary General Meeting of the Isle of Man Athletics Association has been arranged.

Date:  Monday 23rd January 2017

Time:  7pm

Venue:  Hydro Hotel, Queens Promenade, Douglas

Statement:

Following a very disappointing attendance at the IOMAA AGM it was agreed the meeting would be adjourned and an EGM would be scheduled early 2017.

As it stands, there is not enough support for the IOMAA to continue. Unless volunteers step forward at this EGM to offer some of their time to help lighten the load on the existing volunteers the IOMAA will be dissolved.

Whilst the Islands athletics clubs will no doubt continue their great work, they will have to do so without funding support from IOM Sport. There will be many other consequences to the IOM Athletics Association being dissolved and there is an inevitability that opportunities for our athletes will be affected.

If enough people volunteer a little of their time to help our sport will continue to flourish.
