Local children getting fit

Hastings support charity Education Futures Trust has been involved in an exciting project this year designed to improve the wellbeing of local
children through engagement in physical activity.

Funded by Comic Relief, Sport for Change is a ten week course aimed at improving the fitness and health of children aged 8 – 16. Held at venues across Hastings, the sessions offer a variety of physical activities to suit all, including football, cricket, tennis, table tennis, rounders, Uni-hockey, stoolball, netball and basketball.

The latest Sport for Change sessions ended in September – and a group of
young people from the course celebrated their sporting achievements by
receiving YOUNG LEADER AWARD CERTIFICATES at events in Alexandra Park
and Hollington Skate Park. The certificates were awarded to the children
for their participation in sports and team games, for consistent
attendance, supporting other young people and showing leadership skills.

As well as improving confidence and well-being, the course looks to encourage young leaders by offering awards and the option to help lead activities.
