ONE of North Ayrshire’s premier sporting clubs are appealing for one more local business to support their athlete development – by buying them an educational iPad.

North Ayrshire Athletics Club were originally appealing for four of the latest Apple products but THREE businesses have already pledged to help them out with one more being sought in order to help the massively successful club grow and achieve even more.

So far, Microtech Support, TSF Contracts and Abbey Screen and Digital Print have all signed up to help NAAC and they will each buy an iPad for the club.

The club said: “This investment will allow the club to move away from paper registers by providing digital touch screen recording of athletes attendance. They will also be utilised to provide instant video feedback on technique and record training sessions. As well as video analyses we use videos of model performers to ensure athletes get best coaching tips and points.

“We are looking for a one off investment from a local business to help our charity with the purchase of these tablets. The club can offer a variety of incentives for businesses to get involved with the work we do in our community and would welcome any help gratefully.
