Paul Short – HITZ Officer
I am a local lad who studied at the City of Bath College before heading to Gloucestershire University where I achieved a degree in Sports and Exercise Sciences. I am sports mad and have played football and cricket locally for many years, but my passion is, of course, for rugby. I am an egg chaser for Stothert and Pitt RFC in Bath and I have been involved in Bath HITZ for 3 years and still love it every single day. My role is to engage young people and guide them back into employment, training or education using sport as a tool. I aim to improve a young person’s confidence, social skills and employability skills and give them the opportunity to go on and shine in whatever they love doing. I put together the enrichment and make the course as exciting as possible adding in content such as fitness first, water parks, battle archery, paintball and sport at the beach. Being a Hitz officer rocks.
David Oakes – Tutor
My role is to motivate, inspire and encourage all young people to achieve their personal and academic goals in a dynamic, fun and interactive environment. Being in the gym and teaching whilst doing Sport all day and working in a professional Rugby club, my job could not be any better!
The HITZ Programme will be based at Bath Recreation Ground, Spring Gardens, Bath, BA2 4DS.
