Youngsters can try athletics and other sports during half-term in Havering


Youngsters can try a variety of events

Havering children have the chance to try their hand at Olympic sports, thanks to half-term sports camps provided by the Council.

Boys and girls between the ages of 8-14 can come and try athletics, football, tennis, basketball, hockey, handball and more.

Two sessions will run from 10am-1pm on Thursday (June 7) and Friday (June 8).

The sessions will feature training, tournaments, competitions and games, as children play for three hours each day and the events will be held at Brittons School, Ford Lane, Rainham.

The sports camps are designed to build on the legacy of the Olympic Games, encouraging children to take up a sport and keep themselves fit.

They will also help parents keep their children occupied during the half-term holiday.

All children need to bring is plenty of water, and a shower-proof jacket.

Cabinet Member for Culture, Towns and Communities, Councillor Andrew Curtin, said: “The sports camps are a great way to get children enthusiastic about sport and keep them away from the TVs and computer screens.

“The Olympics are going to provide a fantastic summer of sport. Who knows, maybe our sports camps will be training champions of the future?”

Booking is essential. Parents and guardians should call 01708 434743 between 9.30am and 12.30pm.
