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.

“We hope that older children will be enthused by these new sport-specific taster sessions and will be encouraged to sign up to a local club.”

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.
