As the first step in our player recruitment for the 2010 season, the Chichester Sharks took part in the Get Active Sports Festival on Sunday 12th September.
Run by Chichester Council and hosted in Oaklands Park, the event saw numerous local clubs demonstrating their sports to the several thousand people who attended during the 4 hour festival.
A huge thanks to those Sharks players who were available on the day – including Toby, Bruno, Josh and Scott – plus my brother Steven Robinson for dragging himself out of retirement for the day.
It was quite a busy few hours for us, as we took a number of adults and children through the basics of flag football. Hopefully we managed to peak the interest of a few of the adults and perhaps we’ll see them down at training soon. If anything, there about 40 kids in the local area, aged 4-14, who are now Sharks fans!
Everyone who took part in our sessions had their details collected for a raffle to win a football (1 x adult, 1 x child). The winners will be announced and contacted shortly.
If anyone else has ideas of how we can recruit players and raise awareness of the club in the area, please do let me know. And of course, if you know anyone that might be interested in playing just bring them along to training one Sunday.
