Dale in the Community’s summer multisport courses got underway last week and proved extremely popular.
Over 70 boys and girls turned out for the fun sessions at the Soccer Factory and Wardle Academy.
All children were presented with two complimentary tickets for the first matches of the new season plus goodie bags from Rochdale AFC, which included information on the club’s free season tickets for 11s and unders.
Award winners were presented with a certificate and brand new autographed Rochdale football.
Not only that, three boys – Owen Raishbrooke, Jack Blackburn and Jack McDonald – have been recommended to the Dale Academy.
Keith Hicks commented: “We’ve had a great first week and we’re looking forward to welcoming more youngsters to the sessions over the next five weeks. We are looking at a bumper turn out this year!”
Sessions continue throughout the summer holidays and it’s not too late to book a place.
Boys and girls aged 5 and over are welcome to attend.
The youngsters can take part in sports such as basketball and volleyball, as well as athletics disciplines. This is in addition to the normal soccer drills on offer.
