The Bulldogs Charge on!!

Its been a great year for Dearne Valley Bulldogs  under 10’s team.  Here at Cave Active we are proud to support an active lifestyle through youth Rugby League, by providing the kids with much needed kit to enable a professional  (scary!!!) looking team to take on the best in youth rugby league.

Here’s an end season update;

I would like to start by thanking you for the sponsorship over the last season.  The team were able to get Kit, Match Day wear, Bags, Hoodies etc… Your sponsorship has been fantastic for our team.

The season has now finished and what a season it has been!  We have grown so much with 11 signed on in March to 18 currently and new kids coming to training weekly.   The kids have played every weekend since March and have shown fantastic team spirit and great sportsmanship every game.  We are so proud of what they have achieved and they are sure to grow again next season in this fantastic sport.  Their friendships have been amazing too, kids who would never meet are now best of friends.  Parents too are all part of this and we have built a great community not just within the Bulldogs but within our team.

Well done Bulldogs! and get ready for another great season in 2016. If you live in the Dearne valley area and fancy getting involved in Rugby League just click on the link at the top of this post and get involved.

That’s all for now. Now go Escape Your Cave!!!!


Paddleboard the Thames Update

As some of you may know Cave Active is supporting Adam D Short on his attempt to Paddle board the length of the Nile (the longest river in the world) during 2016. Adam is undertaking a series of training paddles to prepare for this awesome challenge. His latest  was to paddle the entire length of the Thames, from source to sea. Unfortunately on this occasion the UK weather got the better of Adam and he was forced to pull out of the challenge. Here’s what Adam had to say.

A peaceful scene on Day 3 of Paddle board the Thames, however, Mother Nature was about to seek revenge! Severe weather warnings of high winds and torrential rain for the coming week, called for some serious thinking. The decision was made on Saturday evening to bail out of this 2015 challenge. And in the same breath, the decision was made to do a re-run from source to sea in Spring 2016! As a training exercise, the event proved more than worthwhile. Lessons were learned, kit will be reassessed, better prepping re background support etc, and ……the first purchase will be …….a laminated map! Here’s to Paddleboard the Thames 2 with Cave Active on board!

We think its great that Adam is already making plans for the spring and agree that sometimes the best lessons are the hardest.

Adam is looking for funding for his Nile paddle so check out his Go Fund Me page, and check back here for more updates from Adam over the coming months.

Escape your cave Dude!!!!

Latest Cave Active News

Well that’s it! It’s been a long road, but the new look website and t-shirt designs are finished. I really hope you like them and support the “escape your cave” philosophy by buying them,  which will enable me to develop the next stage of the project.

Come back to reality and get stuck in!

A friend of mine has a days vacation booked today.  A whole day away from work, OK It’s not that warm, but the sun is shinning and the wind is blowing. The possibilities are endless; a walk in the park, a stroll down the beach, kite flying, learning to windsurf, Kayaking in the harbour, or mountain biking in the south downs. But wait a minute, what is he doing? He’s been sat up since 12:00 am playing the latest computer game release! He told me he expects to be playing this until around 7:00pm today. That’s 19 hours of sitting in a dark room staring at a computer screen! 19 hours!

Now I know everyone gets their kicks from different sources, but this can’t be healthy.

I guess if your reading this you’re not one of those people, but if you are I would urge you to go outside,  look up into the sky, feel the wind on your face and see that the real world is much more interesting that any computer game. So come back to reality and get stuck in!
