YOUNGSTERS will be able to sharpen up their soccer skills, discover dodgeball or even study street dance this half term thanks to a new programme of sports sessions.

The multi-sports sessions for five to 11-year-olds began last year and will take place in towns and villages across Breckland.

In addition, the council will pilot new sport-specific taster sessions for 12 to 16-year-olds in activities including basketball, football, boxing and athletics.

Breckland council executive member for communities, Theresa Hewett, said: “The multi-sports and sport-specific taster sessions are a great way of encouraging children to try something new, or improve their existing skills.

The taster sessions are free for older children but booking is essential. Multi sports sessions for the younger group is �2 per child but no need to book.
