Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise is proud to announce the launch of Improving Cumnock’s Environment (I.C.E) at Townhead Community Sports Hub as part of the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
Our member clubs will be participating in a variety of activities to promote and encourage behaviour change with the end goal of reducing carbon emissions. These activities will involve a sports kit and boot recycling scheme, energy efficient bulk laundry system and an educational awareness programme within the 4 local primary schools. Through this we aim to bring all members of the local community together to join in the fight against climate change.
All at CJCE are delighted to get this project on the go and there is loads of work being carried out behind the scenes. Please look out for further updates on our forthcoming events and how YOU can get involved.

This Summer has been a busy one for CJCE with the delivery of two weeks of football Summer Camps.  Both weeks were a great success with over 60 players taking part each day.  Players focused on ball mastery and improving their skills in 1 v 1 situations.  In addition players experienced our soccer skills challenges which tested their skills in a wide range of situations.    It is estimated players received over 5000 touches over the course of the week.

For those players looking to improve over the school term our Community Football Programmes begin at Townhead the week beginning Monday 22nd August 2016

This summer our successful football camps are back.  Players can expect excellent coaching from our SFA qualified coaches covering 1v1 moves, ball mastery, fun games and our famous skill challenges.

Our camps offer fantastic value and an opportunity for parents to leave their children in a safe environment whilst having fun.

Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise held their Children & Youth Easter Football camp last week.

Despite the poor weather for most of the week, 25 “Nock Tots” and 50 youths attended each day of the 5-day event which was held at Cumnock Academy Astro.

Enterprise Head of Sports Development, Ross Armour, planned a range of development activities and fun skill development practices. He was supported by Activity Co-ordinator, Liam Dunnachie and guest coaches from Kilmarnock FC and Ayr United Football Academy.

On the final day, Cumnock Juniors FC Manager, John McKeown, and player Kerr Samson presented medals to all of the kids and certificates to three who were voted “Most Improved Player” by the coaches. Much to the kids delight, John and Kerr joined in the fun….although their football skills were a bit overshadowed by the kids!

The feedback from the surveys conducted with parents and guardians was very positive. In particular, everyone scored “Conduct and Attitude of the Coaches & Staff”, “Skills of the Coaches” and “Kids Reaction” either as “Very Good” or “Excellent`”. Other suggestions for improvement will be acted on.

It is planned to have a Summer Camp at the soon to be completed Townhead Community Sports Hub.

We would like to thank the coaches from KFC and Ayr United and also Angie Bennett and Adam Strain from EAC Vibrant Communities for their support.

After the success of our October Camp this Easter participants have the chance to improve their 1v1 skills.

The successful Nock Tots programme restarts again at Barshare, Greenmill, Netherthird and Logan Primary School Nurseries on the 22nd February 2016. The programme is funded by the Big Lottery “Community and Lotteries” Fund and aims to increase participation amongst pre-school children.

The successful programme offers a fun introduction to football whilst introducing technical skills as well as improving balance, coordination and general motor skills. Each session has a particular theme which encourages lots of touches of the ball using fun games. The children have already taken part in 8 weeks of sessions and the feedback from the schools has been extremely positive.

When the new 3G pitch is laid at Townhead Park there will be regular sessions available to younger children which will build on the sessions which have taken place in local schools.

Thanks to funding from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust local schools will soon be able to experience our Multi Foot Programme. The programme is aimed at Primary 6 and 7 pupils in local primary schools and aims to encourage them to engage with sport.

From our experience delivering football in the community it was clear that often children became disengaged when the sessions would turn to competitive

CJCE are pleased to let everyone know that the flood management plan has been approved by SEPA. The contractor will be back on site as soon as they can arrange machinery. We will give an estimated completion soon. Thanks to Jim Malcolm and SGS for their work in getting the revised plan through.
