Crewe Community Athletics Sessions a Success

By Everybody Sport March 1, 2016

Crewe Community Athletics Sessions


During December 2015 to present, a new community athletics programme for children and young people has been organised and delivered by Everybody Sport & Recreation at the Cumberland Arena.

To date there have been 10 sessions delivered with over 236 children in attendance!

The sessions are delivered by a local Level 3 Athletics Coach and 3 Everybody Sport and Recreation volunteers, who assist the coach and support with administration. The sessions are non competitive, open to all abilities, and aimed at children and young people aged 8-12 years old (U11s and U13s).

The sessions combine athletics with a fun programme of activities covering fundamental skills of running, jumping and throwing – skills that are vital for every sport – as well as encouraging children to become more active and staying healthy.

This has been a great joint partnership with Crewe & Nantwich School Sport Partnership, Crewe & Nantwich Athletics Club and Everybody Sport & recreation. There has been a waiting list at the Crewe Athletics Club for several years in this age group, and with more school competitions has meant more demand! This session allows children who do not currently attend the club to have an opportunity for more athletics, with a further pathway into the club if they want to progress.

Time:    6.00pm – 7.00pm
