Children across the UK are being helped to feel part of a club and encouraged to ‘keep developing their multi sports skills’ by former sports stars and children’s charity the Youth Sport Trust (YST).
Following its success in engaging more than 21,300 young people already, and the announcement of a third lockdown, the Youth Sport Trust has extended the online club until at least the end of March to ensure a generation do not lose vital multi sports skills.
Following the lockdown three announcement, the charity will team up with 11 National Governing Bodies (NGB) of Sport including British Judo and England Netball so children can enjoy being led through a range of fun, exciting and challenging invasion games, dance, gymnastics and other sports which will help them to stay fit and healthy while also supporting their broader personal development.
Running on a Tuesday and a Thursday, the ‘club’ sessions will be led by YST Athlete Mentors with NGB guest athletes from different backgrounds, abilities and sports including Paralympian Kate Grey. The first After School Sport Club of the New Year will start on Tuesday 12 January at 5pm and last for 30 minutes. It will then run at the same time every Tuesday and Thursday until March.
