How Club Garin Works

  1. We will find the best possible coaches/tutors available for our activities
  2. We will employ the best available training programmes for our participants
  3. We will provide top facilities as activities venues
  4. We will promote competition opportunities within the school and inter- school, interclub and national events for activities we support.
  5. We will provide quality playing gear to enhance our participants’ performances.
  6. All our activities will have parental support because our families willingly support their children
  7. Activities will be adequately funded through appropriate sponsorship and/or user-pays principles
  8. Participation is an important base principle and this is enhanced by performance opportunities for those who wish to take an activity to the highest level.
