The Sky Blues in the Community holiday activities continue to run successfully so far this summer, with hundreds of children taking part in various camps and activities across Coventry and Warwickshire.
The team are delivering Monday to Friday during every week of the holiday period, with World Cup camps running at the Alan Higgs Centre, Bablake playing fields, Higham Lane School, and St Nicholas Park in Warwick.
The community team are also running camps funded by Orbit Housing Association in Cawston and Bilton in Rugby, and in the Forbes Estate at Warwick Sports Club as part of the ‘Impact’ project supported by Warwick District Council. Coventry City Council are also funding ‘short breaks’ activities for children from Coventry with disabilities delivered by sky blues coaches.
A BBC Children in Need grant is facilitating multi-sport activities at community venues in Foleshill, Radford, Willenhall, Hillfields, Canley, Tile Hill, AT7 Centre and the Moathouse Leisure Centre across Coventry throughout the six week period for those aged 8-18.
Guy Rippon, Joint Head of Sky Blues in the Community said “This summer is one of our busiest periods for a long time. We have up to 30 staff delivering holiday activities for children and young people at venues across Coventry and Warwickshire.
“All our staff are working incredibly hard to ensure that we have a presence across the city promoting sport and physical activity for youngsters during the break.
It is not too late to get involved with the Sky Blues holiday activities – with ‘World Cup Camps’ taking place next week from Monday to Thursday at Higham Lane School in Nuneaton, and at the Alan Higgs Centre in Coventry.
