We have choice of five or six places to go from Pensacola to Washington D.C. to California.”If the Junior squad has several top finishes at future competitions, the squad could receive a full paid bid to the U.S. Finals. Jody Singleton, Xtreme Athletics co-owner with Filiault, said she was ecstatic about the performances of the competition cheer squads.“They competed with teams from across the state and from as far away as Tennessee,” Singleton said. “For their first competition, they were poised and confident and did all that was asked of them. We’re just looking forward to the next competition.”The squads have four more competitions scheduled. The Senior squad will also compete in New Orleans and the Junior squad is considering adding that competition as a sixth.Each squad has 13 members and the squads are filled for now. Tryouts for the squads will be held in April/May. The ages for the squads are Youth, 11 and under; Junior, 14 and under; and Senior, 10-18.

A little respect for staff can answer questions

Posted on by

first_imgWhy do managers do it, I often wonder? You are sandwiched between a distant,insistent and impatient senior management team and a knowledgeable group ofworkers, who withhold their co-operation from you because they think you arenot up to it. Are you just coin-operated? Do you have a bit more on the bonus or a fewmore share options? Is your motivation based on money? These issues areparticularly interesting now with the focus shifting to public services andtheir management. For some people, all that is required is a good dose ofprivate-sector management, and our public services will be as well run as BP,the Halifax or, perish the thought, BT, Railtrack or Marks & Spencer. Do the disciplines of the market inevitably make managers more effective?Does the absence of the market lead to slack, dreary, second-rate people whoare managing similar sloths with the result that our services are second rate,our infrastructure inadequate and our public institutions incapable of reform? Years ago, managers in the public services felt they were a breed apart.Some were above commerce and profit as driving forces in society. Serviceitself was enough for their work. Stability and security were welcome featuresof public employment, and job security and a pension made up for uneven accessto great wealth. The Thatcher years altered all that. Graduates became more interested inreal-time salaries in the financial services than the selfless sacrifice oftheir parents in the public sector. Talent was drawn to the flame of financialsuccess as a basis for self-respect rather than community approbation. But the question still remains, how can we improve all performanceeverywhere? Most of us understand as base one that there will be no public servicesat all without the wealth creation sectors of the economy working flat out. Butthe naive view that any manager who works in the private sector will inevitablymake a difference in managing the public services is plainly wrong. Themotivation and commitment of public service workers needs acknowledgement. Thespecial skills in running a school or a hospital are different frominternational securities dealing or biscuit manufacture. But something here is consistent as a theme. How do you unlock the knowledgeand commitment of the staff? Do you manage by concealing information or sharingit? Do you feel diminished if you accept advice from subordinates or do younurture it? Do you have a blame culture for everyone else’s inadequacies exceptyour own? Some business behaviours work everywhere. Respecting the workforce is one,but today it is routinely abused in the mammoth bureaucracies of great stateinstitutions and private small firms alike. Do something about that and we willall succeed.By John Lloyd, National officer, Amalgamated Engineering and ElectricalUnion Related posts:No related photos.

Hughes happy to be back in action

Posted on by

first_img Northern Ireland’s fifth-placed finish in World Cup 2014 qualifying may not have been what Hughes had hoped for but he signed up for another attempt and has played every minute of the team’s best ever start to a campaign. O’Neill’s team have won all three of their Euro 2016 fixtures so far, a 2-0 success over top seeds Greece on Tuesday the best result so far. “I had sort of decided that enough was enough. I was getting a little bit fed up with the same old things,” Hughes said of his retirement. “But sitting down and talking to Michael, finding out the direction he wanted the squad to go in and seeing the group of players I could see the potential there and I thought why not give it one more go. “You are a long time retired and all that. I have had no regrets since coming back. It’s been fantastic. “How can you not enjoy winning three games out of three? “I’ve always said as long as we are competing and giving ourselves a chance. That is what it’s all about. “I have never experienced winning three games at the start. I know we hadn’t won the first two qualifiers since 1968 and now we have won three which has never been done.” Hughes has played 14 times since returning to the international fold, taking his tally to 93 caps – third on the all-time list behind Pat Jennings and David Healy. Defender Aaron Hughes is delighted he was talked out of retirement by Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill. Hughes, 34, captained his country for eight years before calling time on his international career in September 2011. But O’Neill made reversing that decision his number one priority when he took over at the start of 2012 and with the help of assistant Billy McKinlay, who worked with Hughes at Fulham, persuaded him to come back on board. Should he play all of the remaining qualifiers, he will also be the first outfield player to reach a century for Northern Ireland. His experience, as well as that of his fellow senior men, is crucial but he is just as pleased by the recent form of the side’s emerging players. “One of the main things now is the mentality of the group. We are not accepting going away, putting in a good performance but not getting the result,” he said. “The quality of the younger players is so important. You still have the experience of people like myself, Gareth McAuley and Chris Baird but having the likes of Jamie Ward, Ollie Norwood, Shane Ferguson and others there is real quality. “It is looking good for the future, not just the present.” Press Associationlast_img read more

McClaren – I’m sticking with Derby

Posted on by

first_img And the former England boss insisted, with the Rams currently third in the Sky Bet Championship, he is focused on their promotion push. “I have a job to do here and I’m solely focusing on trying to get Derby into the Premier League,” he told skysports.com “We’ve got a very, very good chance and everything else is speculation. We’ve got 16 games to go and have a chance of achieving what we want to achieve and I’m not going to walk away from it. As for Villa, who are the Barclays Premier League’s lowest scorers and currently in the relegation zone, McClaren added: “No doubt who goes in, it is a very good job, a big job and a sleeping giant. “And someone is going to be very lucky to get that.” Lambert was sacked on Wednesday after 10 games without a win, culminating in Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat at Hull. Tim Sherwood appears to be the current favourite to take over at the Premier League strugglers, who are third from bottom. Steve McClaren has distanced himself from the managerial vacancy at Aston Villa. Press Associationcenter_img The Derby boss has been linked with the post since Paul Lambert was sacked on Wednesday night. McClaren was set to be appointed at Villa in 2011 only for chairman Randy Lerner to change his mind and pick Alex McLeish from rivals Birmingham instead. last_img read more
