Young People Spring In To Action This Easter

Young people can beat boredom and spring into action over the Easter holidays with a packed programme of sports activities lined up by South Cambridgeshire District Council.

A netball camp for ages 7 to 15 will take place on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 April, from 10am to 3.30pm, at Impington Sports Centre.  Players of all abilities are invited to join in and develop their skills with one-to-one help from England Netball qualified coaches before putting what they have learned in to practice in a fun competition at the end of the day.

An athletics camp for ages 7 to 15 will take place on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 April, from 10am to 3.30pm, at Wilberforce Road Athletics Track, Cambridge.  Participants of all abilities will have the opportunity to work with England Athletics qualified coaches to develop their sprinting, jumping, throwing and endurance skills.

All sessions will cost just £18 per child for the day or £30 for two siblings.  To participate in two days will cost £30, to participate in three days will cost £40 and in four days will cost £50.  

Cllr Pippa Corney, South Cambridgeshire District Council’s cabinet member for new communities, said: “We saw how the London 2012 Olympics captured the imagination of the country. On the back of its success we remain committed to using that growing interest in sport to deliver fun activities to engage children and improve their social skills, health and fitness that they can carry through the rest of their lives.”

There are limited spaces for all activities.  For more information and a booking form contact Helen Stepney on 07732 222905 or email helen.stepney@scambs.gov.uk
