Olympic sports fun for children

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS in Rotherham can learn to run and jump like their Olympic heroes this half-term.

Children aged five to 16 are invited to a series of training sessions designed to improve athletics skills at Herringthorpe Stadium, Middle Lane South, from Monday to Friday.

Youngsters will receive coaching in track and field. Participants can attend for the week, day or just a morning.

A Rotherham Council spokeswoman said: “This year’s Olympic athletes have inspired a generation of sporting youngsters to get more involved in athletics.”

Sessions cost £4 for each morning, from 10am until noon and £8 for a full day from 10am to 3pm.
