VIEWS OF OUR COACHES
"Coaching my first programme with Mini Mermaid Running Club at Newington Green Primary School in London has been an amazing experience!
The curriculum is so well thought out, it all flows very naturally during the sessions. I found that I was able to adapt it where necessary as well as use my own ideas based on how the girls were responding. The support from all the other MMRC UK coaches has been great and it's ongoing.
It was wonderful to see all the girls progressing towards moving more during the workouts and genuinely enjoying the running. They were definitely feeling and seeing the benefits of regular exercise, not just physically but how they can deal with their thoughts and feelings in a different way when moving around. The 5km event was just a wonderful morning, totally inspiring!
Volunteering may be a way to give back to your community, but the personal benefits are huge too and i'm already missing it!
This unique programme works and i can't wait to go back!"
