YOUNG people aged eight to 14 have a
chance to improve their athletics skills
this summer when the Norwich Union Star
track initiative returns to Canterbury for a second year.
The week-long scheme runs from Monday
12 August to Friday 16 August at Canterbury
High School. It is being organised by
Canterbury City Council's Sport Development
Team and gives children the chance to take part in a wide range of games and activities
designed to improve their running, jumping
and throwing skills.
The emphasis is on fun and encourages
young people to take part in and enjoy
athletics. Last year, four athletes from the
district received medals for finishing in the national top three in their age groups in the Walking for Distance challenge.
The cost is £30. For more details telephone Claire Jones on 01227 862524.
