football training for youngsters in Berrow and Brean
people in the Berrow and Brean area are being invited to sign
up for free football coaching sessions as part of an initiative
from Avon and Somerset police.
police officers have worked with Berrow Parish Council, who own
the Multi Use Games Area in Berrow, to establish twice weekly
an average of 15-20 boys and girls turning up to each session,
the force is encouraging other budding sports stars to come along
to the sessions.
sessions are held on Monday evenings from 5.30-6.30 pm (for 14-17
year olds) and Thursday afternoons from 4.30-5.30pm (for 8-14
the police's successful application for funding, over the next
month it is hoped that a professional football coach will be joining
the sessions to teach the players skills and techniques.
Tracey Grobbeler told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "As the nights
are getting lighter and young people have more time on their hands
now is a great time to get involved in sporting activities."
sessions are free and are open to those at any level who are keen
to develop their football techniques and get active. As well as
learning new skills and making friends, the sessions are a chance
for young people to have a really fun game of football."
to the lack off pavement between Berrow and Brean, Pontins have
donated the use of their minibus, complete with a driver, to transport
local young people from Brean to the sessions.
