Beat The Winter Chill With Council Sport Sessions

Tackle the winter blues head on with a range of Cotswold-wide sports coaching, thanks to The Sports Club.

Daily doses of sport sessions are being hosted at venues across the District during January and February, with popular activities such as football, cricket, golf, rugby, boxing and tennis included.

The scheme, set up Cotswold District Council in 2005, is aimed at children aged from 5-16 years old and offers a fun, friendly and safe environment where they can take part in both after-school and weekend sport sessions.

To get children warmed up during the winter half-term week, there will be sport sessions held by qualified coaches, which will start in Cirencester on Monday February 16th and Tuesday February 17th. These run from 9.30am-3pm.

Cotswold Leisure, Bourton-on-the-Water will be the venue for another two sessions on Wednesday February 18th and Thursday February 19th, while the Coln House School in Fairford will host Friday February 20th’s event.

There are also after-school sports clubs being run by The Sports Club on Tuesday afternoons at Cotswold Leisure Cirencester. These are aimed at 6-11 years olds and are held from 4-5pm, while weekend sports coaching takes place on Saturdays at Cotswold Leisure, Tetbury, from 10.30am-12noon.

Scott Burry, Cotswold District Council’s Youth Sport Development Officer said:
“The Sports Club continues to provide a safe, fun and positive experience for children wanting to take part in sport.
“I was very pleased with the success of The Sports Club last year and I’m sure, due to the quality of the coaching staff, it will continue through 2009.”

The Sports Club coaching team are all qualified at various levels of sport coaching, and have First Aid and Child Protection training. A daily fee of £12 applies per session, with a 50% discount if you have The Sports Club membership.

Please contact the Council’s Youth Sports Development Officer Scott Burry on 01285 623447 or by email, for more information, or to receive a copy of The Sports Club’s 2009 booklet.
