Bracknell Cobras can facilitate your child's completion of the Duke of Edinburgh Award. All levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold require completion of 3 sections of activities: volunteering, physical and skills.
We welcome young people to help out with our junior sessions, especially U10 & U12 where they will work with our qualified coaches to run sessions for our young players.
We run sessions for both U16 boys and girls where the fundamentals of basketball are taught & there is also the opportunity to play in matches.
We can provide lots of ways for your child to complete this section.
The following things would be permitted:
Sports appreciation, leadership or officiating
Film and video making
Journalism- blogs, match reports
Many students at local secondary schools will embark on an innovative life skills programme called ‘The Edge’.
The scheme is intended, over time, to develop and accredit the life skills and attributes that employers are telling us they need – leadership, organisation, initiative, resilience and communication. This will give pupils a qualification, which runs alongside their academic successes and recognises what they can do as well as what they know. In order to gain the qualification at “Apprentice”, “Graduate” or “Masters” level, pupils need to complete a range of activities. The activities can be many and varied and can be undertaken in normal lessons, in extra-curricular clubs or outside of college.
The Cobras can provide many opportunities for young people to gather skills that can be added to their Edge portfolio.
