ARE YOU GETTING BEHIND TEAM GB?
ARE THE GAMES INSPIRING YOU TO TRY OUT SOMETHING NEW?
Here at Spring into Action, we are really enjoying the Olympic Games in Brazil. We've seen great action in the Women's Rugby Sevens, the Synchronised Diving, Swimming and Gymnastics events. It is an exciting time get behind our athletes and we are cheering on our Team GB athletes for glory on the medals table.
Did you know that we are hosting our own ‘Summer of Olympics’ at our Inclusive Community Sports Club, Spring into Sport?
We are lucky enough to welcome an athletics coach to work with our members, offering a range of Olympic style events. Ben Armstrong is a UK Athletics Association Coach and coaches with Blackburn Harriers Athletics Club. He will be with the club THIS FRIDAY 12TH AUGUST, and then for the next 4 sessions to enable the group to have a go at javelin, relay races, high jump, long jump, sprinting and more.
Spring into Sport is based at Hyndburn Leisure Centre on Henry Street, Accrington and we welcome any new members that would like to come along and try out something new! The ‘Summer of Olympic’ activities are open to any young person aged 11 and over and take place on 12th and 26th August, 2nd and 16th September. Sessions run 6.30pm – 8.30pm and cost just £3 per person.
