Meeting budding sports stars at local Summer Camp

I was delighted to be asked by the Seaview Enterprises’ ‘More than a Club NI’ project to visit their hugely successful T:BUC Arsenal Summer Camp at Seaview Stadium last week to chat with local budding sport stars.

I was asked to talk to young people from North Belfast and Newtownabbey, where I grew up, about my career to date as a professional motorcycle rider.

I have to admit that I was really quite nervous beforehand. I wasn’t sure what to expect of 30 to 35 children staring at me, but they seemed really interested in how I’ve gone from a young motocross rider to racing the British Supersport Championship for Team Traction Control.

Afterwards they bombarded with me loads of questions, which was great, and I signed quite a few posters and even the odd pair of football boots.

It was a really great experience and one which I thoroughly enjoyed. The camp was really well run and the young people seemed to be having a great week, which is a credit to the hard work and dedication of the coaches involved.

The camp aimed to improve children’s Literacy & Numeracy through the power of sport and it’s great that the ‘More than a Club NI’ project has this forward thinking approach to deliver these types of initiatives.

It is an excellent view when you arrive into Dubrovnik by the sea path.2 points and 5. The racquet head should be on a line with the hand, or, if anything, slightly in advance; the whole arm and the racquet should turn slightly over the ball as it leaves the racquet face and the stroke continue to the limit of the swing, thus imparting top spin to the ball.
