Half-Term Activities

28 October 2013

Community Trust Development Centres continue during half-term holidays

Whilst the children might be off school next weeks, the majority of the Development Centres run by Bury FC Community Trust will still take place.

This includes all of the football centres, the rhythmic gymnastics, cheerleaders, netball and cricket development centres.  The only centre that will not take place will be the volleyball development centre that takes place on Wednesday evenings at Bury Church of England High School.

Even if your child has never attended a development centre previously, it is never too late to come along and try out one of the sports for the first time.  This includes traditional sports like football and netball and newer sports such as cheerleading, rhythmic gymnastics and volleyball. Additionally if your child’s chosen sport is cricket, the cricket development centre provides a great opportunity to keep your skill levels up over the autumn/winter period.

In total, the Community Trust runs 10 different centres across Bury each week, with sessions taking place every day of the week.

Each of the different development centres is run by fully qualified coaches with specific experience and qualifications in their chosen sport; many of the coaches have also competed and officiated at the highest level in their chosen sport.  For example, Sian Godwyn, the volleyball coach was one of the volleyball officials at London 2012.

The majority of the development centre sessions cost £4 (with the exception of rhythmic gymnastics which costs £5) and are suitable for children from the age of five.
