Kingstonian Initiative Begins Now

Gary Parsons

Introducing the Kingstonian Initiative, Launching June 2023!

In the spirit of fostering personal growth and community engagement, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Kingstonian Initiative for the year 2023.
This exciting new program is designed to encourage all our athletes to push their boundaries and explore new horizons in health and fitness, while also making a positive impact within their club and local community.
The Kingstonian Initiative will present a series of monthly challenges to our athletes, giving them the opportunity to choose one challenge that resonates with them. These challenges will vary, some intended for completion during training sessions, others at organized events, and some integrated into everyday life.
Here are a few examples of the challenges awaiting our athletes:
Conquer a local hill or Munro through climbing
• Complete five Geocaches within a month.
• Take on the "Swim The Channel Challenge" alongside your teammates
• Accompany an adult to land training and successfully complete the circuit
• Achieve a daily step count of 10,000/15,000/20,000 steps
By participating in these challenges, athletes can earn up to 40 points each month, with occasional bonus challenges offering extra points.
Furthermore, athletes who enroll in the program will receive a Pin-Badge, and as they reach specific point milestones, they will be awarded a special "Kingstonian Cap" to proudly display their achievements during training. At the culmination of the year, the athlete with the highest score will receive a unique, one-off prize.
We are grateful for the generous support of HVS, which enables us to provide the first cap and badge free of charge to all participants. However, additional caps will be available for purchase at cost (approximately £7.50).
To ensure the authenticity of completed activities, athletes must provide evidence, such as a photograph showcasing their accomplishments.
If you're intrigued by this opportunity, don't hesitate to sign up via OnDeck today and embark on a journey of personal growth and community involvement with the Kingstonian Initiative!
The programme is open to non-members and parents also for a small fee of £2 to sign-up and £7.50 for any caps.
