KIDS GET IN! WITH SPORT AT CHELMSFORD CITY COUNCIL THIS WHITSUN HOLIDAY

22/5/18 About 1 minute
Chelmsford City Council is offering a huge range of Whitsun holiday activities this May, with Get In! Active Fun and Get In! Skills Clinics at four leisure centres across the area.

Taking place at Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre, South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre, Dovedale Leisure Centre and Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre (CSAC), Skills Clinics and Active Fun courses offer great fun and learning for children aged between two to 16. They're designed to help young people to enjoy being active and develop a passion for sport that will last for life. The courses will run from Tuesday 29 May to Friday 1 June.

Get In! Skills Clinics are short, intensive courses designed to give a foundation in a sport. The 'clinics' offer a fantastic range of fun activities for those looking to improve their abilities or to learn to swim and ice-skate. For the future stars of track and field, there are also athletics masterclasses available, where activities will include long jump, hurdles, javelin and running.

Chelmsford City Council's Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Julia Jeapes, says: "Skills Clinics are a fantastic way to learn a new activity or improve existing skills, as well as keeping children fit and healthy during the Whitsun holiday."

Chelmsford City Council also offers a range of Get In! Active Fun courses, which focus on getting children active and enjoying themselves and include activities such as go-karting, karate, trampolining, Disney dance, a Little Mix vs Taylor Swift mash-up and the brand-new obstacle inflatable. To celebrate this summer's World Cup, there will be a very special football academy at CSAC, 'Warm up to World Cup', which will give children new footballing skills and a greater understanding of the beautiful game.
