Coventry Sports Foundation to host festive holiday fun for city kids

Coventry Editorial 10th Dec, 2016   0

SPORTY city youngsters are being kept busy in the run up to Christmas with a packed programme of games and events.

Coventry Sports Foundation is offering a series of sports in the holidays during the run up to Christmas Day at its three venues – the Alan Higgs Centre in Allard Way, Centre AT7 in Bell Green Road and the Xcel Leisure Centre in Mitchell Avenue.

The seasonal-themed events aimed at children aged between five and 11 years old will include Christmas crafts, carol singing and party games as well as sports such as dodgeball, trampolining and football.

Wendy Jackson, community development manager at Coventry Sports Foundation, said the sessions were perfect for parents who wanted to get some last minute festive shopping done or for those who had to work.

She added: “Coventry Sports Foundation’s holiday activities are a fun and convenient way to keep children entertained during the countdown to Christmas.

“The events will be a way to keep children entertained and get some of their excitement out before Father Christmas delivers gifts for the big day.

“Not only that it is a way for young people to keep active and try out various sporting activities during the break from school.”

“There is something to cater for all tastes and make sure that children can get involved and make some holiday memories.

“But the schemes always prove very popular, so I would advise those who are interested to reserve their children’s place now in order to avoid disappointment.”

The sessions will take place from Monday, December 19 until Friday, December 23 at Centre AT7 and Xcel Leisure Centre and between Monday, December 19 and Wednesday, December 21 at the Alan Higgs Centre.

Both Xcel Leisure Centre and the Alan Higgs Centre will also host performing arts camps when street dance, break dance, games, and a disco will be taking place.

All children will need to be suitably dressed for all of the activities, and have plenty of drinks and a packed lunch for all day sessions.
