Want to feel all warm and fuzzy on the outside? Buy a TRSA hoodie! Want to feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside and contribute to trail running democracy? Come along to the TRSA AGM and speaker night. We’ll kick off at 6pm with a guest speaker, provide some nibbles including some delicious Roasted On treats (we’ve even coaxed their brilliant inventor into being our MC for the evening!) and all we ask is that you stick around for some AGM formalities that we’ll move through nice and quickly. If you’re keen to come along, please RSVP here so we can sort catering.
We’re very excited to host Emma Mattey, a sports psychologist who is going to talk to us about mental health in athletes. Emma is currently working in private practice and at the South Australian Sports Institute. Having completed a Masters’ in Applied Psychology (Sport & Exercise), Emma has worked across both the sport and general psychology settings. Emma has worked with athletes and coaches across a wide variety of sports including soccer, tennis, indoor and beach volleyball, hockey, water polo, swimming, diving, athletics, and many others. Emma will speak to us about Mental Health in Sport: Opening the Conversation.
As an athlete being peak physical and mental shape is incredibly important. Most of us already know that engaging in sport and physical activity is fantastic for our physical and psychological well-being, however, engaging in organised or competitive sport might also bring some unique sources of stress. Do you know the signs and symptoms that might be present when you or someone you know is struggling? This session will focus on helping you understand mental health, recognize signs that you or someone might be struggling mentally and emotionally and will provide practical tips for how to respond appropriately. We also discuss some tips and strategies for maintaining good mental health.
TRSA AGM 2019
At the 2019 AGM on Wednesday 24 July we’ll be looking to fill a total of 12 committee positions, four of which are specifically elected, with a remaining eight classified as general committee members. Roles will be assigned to general committee members at the first committee meeting, depending on interests. We’re also after some extra people willing to help in ongoing non-committee roles for defined tasks. If you’re interested in getting involved, either on the committee or in an on-going non committee role, we’d love to hear from you! Have a read below and then flick us an email at email@example.com by 5pm on Monday 22 July.
In addition to presenting a couple of quick reports and electing a committee, we’ll be presenting some minor changes to the Trail Running SA Constitution to the membership for approval. The changes have been ratified by the current committee and you can take a look here to see what they are.
If you’re interested in sticking your hand up for election to the committee, or if you’re keen to help in an on-going non-committee role, head to http://trailrunningsa.com/about/ for more information. Still got questions? Flick us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
