It was another busy week at Inverclyde Sports Centre with school groups taking centre stage.
The sports centre welcomed their first Additional Support Needs school to the centre for a residential last week, Riverbrae School. They brought 15 pupils with then with varying level of support needed and had a brilliant time learning new skills and sports that they haven’t had a chance to try before. The teacher provided some feedback as he left saying ‘I would recommend this place to all ASN establishments, the staff couldn’t have done more for us’
· The centre have also welcomed all of the primary schools from Arran for their P7 transition residential trip, they enjoyed a day over in our national centre in Cumbrae also for cycling and watersports
· Scottish Disability Sport’s Young Person’s Sports Panel was staying over the weekend on their two night residential taking part in a mentoring programme, some really inspirational young people who are the next leaders in sport.
· This week Inverclyde are looking forward to welcoming Alloway and Kincaidston Primaries from South Ayrshire with over 100 pupils here.
· It is football this weekend as the centre welcome back the Scotland Amputee team back to the centre for a training session, an incredible bunch of players who go by the tagline Leg Off, Game On! 
· Fitness classes are getting more and more popular. Pilates is one of our favourites and contrary to popular belief is not as relaxing as it may seem! It is different from yoga in that it is more movement and core exercise based rather than a series of static poses
Instructor Elspeth said: ‘Pilates regularly will give you a really strong core, which in turn has so many benefits for posture and general health. You will leave the class feeling energised and ready for the day ahead!’. 
The pilates classes run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
