Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council is inviting children to register for its Easter sport and recreation programme, which will run from Wednesday 8th to Friday 10th April.

The programme, developed by Council’s Sport Development and Physical Recreation Team is aimed at young people aged between four and fourteen years. Activities will include football, multi-sports coaching camps, a Girls ‘Allowed’ Fun Activity Camp and a brand new activity; a stand-alone hockey camp for boys and girls aged 7 to 14 years, which will be held at Council’s new Astroturf facility at Rugby Avenue!

There will be a number of camps in the programme this year, taking place from Wednesday 8th to Friday 10th April a FREE transport collection service to include pick up and returns for young people living in rural areas of the Borough such as Articlave, Aghadowey, Kilrea, Garvagh, Castlerock, Portrush and Portstewart for specified camps, details of which are available on the leaflet. Pick up points, times and further information are included in the programme leaflet and/or application form.

A multi-sports camp will also be available for boys and girls aged seven to fourteen years old, offering a choice of selected sports each day which includes Handball, Netball, Gaelic football, Tri-Golf, Badminton, Basketball, Cricket, Sportshall Athletics, Tennis and Tag Rugby.

The Sports Development and Physical Recreation Manager at Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council said, “This year’s programme is the most varied Council has produced as part of its Easter Sports and Recreation Programme.

“The programmes are designed to offer something for all children. The Girls ‘Allowed’ Fun Activity Camp is the perfect mix of sport and activities and our ever popular football camp is back again with skill enhancement, small sided games and match practice for all boys and girls who enjoy football at the new 3G pitch at Rugby Avenue.

“The multi-sport camp gives young people the opportunity to try a range of new sports, make new friends and have fun while improving their physical skills and techniques. The new Hockey course will provide an opportunity to come enjoy the game and experience Council’s new 3G Astroturf pitch.

“All coaching sessions will be led by qualified, vetted coaches, with necessary equipment provided. It is advised that children wear suitable clothing and footwear. In particular, it should be noted that synthetic pitches do not allow for metal or aluminium studs. A rainproof jacket and hat may be required for outdoor activities and a towel with a change of clothes is advised.”

The full price for individuals to participate in all camps is £18 for the three days. There is also a special family ticket available priced at £45 for three or more participating children per camp, from the same immediate family.
