October Half Term Success 2019 News
October Half Term Success
This October Half Term saw over to 120 children and young people taking part in a variety of sports sessions all across the borough.
Parkour / Free Running with Above Parkour delivered fun sessions across two days inviting new comers to attend their weekly run sessions in the borough. We are now looking for an indoor space to help continue run these fantastic session over the winter period.
Athletics was another huge hit where coaches helped build from the success of the weekly sessions held in the lead up to half term. It was great to see lots of future Olympians taking part and enjoying themselves.
Netball at Frances Bardsley was a smash with many working on their skills, drills, attack and defence as well as taking part in awesome game play to finish the day.
The West Ham Football Camp was as popular as ever with sessions booking to capacity very quickly. The weather managed to hold out for this, however unfortunately not for the Football Tournament after causing it to be cancelled.
Table Tennis Tournament at My Place was a hit with those involved enjoying the fun tournament with coach Colin.
Over in Para Sport, we held Multi-Sport sessions with Athletics coach Sheila and Peter and Jordan from the Havering Tennis Club at the YMCA, Swimming at Sapphire in Romford and the new Movement to Music session at Hornchurch Sports Centre. It was great to see some new faces as well as regulars in attendance at each of these.
A big THANK YOU goes out to all our coaching staff, partners and facilities for working extremely hard and doing such a great job teaming up with us to produce a fun-filled portfolio of sport and exercise during this week.
We can confirm that regular weekly sessions are now back up and running after a short break so we hope to see you at one (or more) of those.
We are now planning February Half Term and working on even more action-packed activities for the community. Be sure to check the School Holiday Activities tab on this website for schedules and booking links within the new year.
