A NEW sports club for youngsters is coming to Halstead.

MultiCoach is starting a basketball club in the town for five to 14-year-olds.

Children will be taught how to dribble, pass, shoot and play matches in a fun environment.

MultiCoach aims to provide opportunities for children to get active and take part in regular physical activity.

A recent study revealed half of seven-year-olds do not meet the physical activity guidelines, and with online games becoming more accessible the group thinks it is important for children to socialise and keep fit through sport.

The session will run every Monday from 5pm to 6pm for five to nine-year-olds and 6pm to 7pm for nine to 12-year-olds.

Sessions are at Halstead Leisure Centre starting from Monday, January 16.

The first session is free, with all equipment supplied.

MultiCoach also has a team in Earls Colne, so for more competitive players, there will be the opportunity to play matches against other teams in the area.
