Ashfield youngsters urged to give athletics a go

Youngsters between the age of eight and 15 are being given the opportunity to have a go at athletics during the Easter Holidays.

The Star Track Athletics programme is being organised by Ashfield District Council, Sutton Harriers Athletics Club and Ashfield School Leisure Centre.

It will take place at Ashfield School between 10am and 3pm on 10th, 11th and 12th April at a cost of only £8.50 per day including a free goody bag.

No experience is necessary as qualified coaches from the club are on hand to deliver athletics activities in a fun and relaxed environment.

Dave Waring, assistant sports development officer at Ashfield District Council said: “Star Track athletics is a great way for young people to try out athletics, whilst at the same time introducing them to club coaches at the club venue.”
