Boston United Football in the Community delivered two multi sports taster sessions for young people in Boston during the Easter and Whitsun school holidays.
The sessions were attended by children aged between 5 and 12. During the Easter half term 42 children spent the day with United in the Community trying out a variety of sporting activities, including futsal, dodgeball, hockey, benchball and tag games. . The children were then put into groups and given the challenge of creating their own game. In the afternoon, the games devised by the two winning teams were played by everyone.
During a rainy May half term, 37 young people took part in the multi sports session and, despite the weather, they enjoyed playing a range of sports, including some new games such as hungry hippos, noughts and crosses and indoor hockey and rounders.
United in the Community will be delivering five further multi sports taster sessions for children during the summer school break, again supported by Boston Big Local as part of Theme 1 of the Plan: Health and Wellbeing.
