Football coaching sessions in Torbay

21 January 2014

There’s football coaching sessions on offer for Torbay youngsters after new football training sessions kicked-off in their local community this week.

Delivered by Sanctuary Housing in partnership with Torquay United Football in the Community and Westward Housing, the football training sessions are open to young residents aged 12 or under.

The football coaching sessions take place on Tuesdays at the Multi-Use Games Arena (MUGA) in Great Parks, Paignton, from 3.30-5pm until 1 April 2014. Each session costs only £2 per participant.

The Torbay football coaching sessions form part of Sanctuary in Sport, a country-wide initiative from Sanctuary Housing which is seeing youngsters across England get fit and active as they get involved in a range of physical and creative activities.

Frank Prince, community manager at Torquay United Football in the Community, said: “We joined forces with Sanctuary and Westward Housing last year to bring football to the residents of Torbay, and it’s really marvellous that we’ve been able to do it again.

“The coaching is set to be really exciting and I’d encourage youngsters across the Bay to come along and join in the fun.”
