Posted: 4th April 2019

Get your kids working off those chocolate eggs with a free coaching taster session at the Biggest Club in Town on Easter Sunday.

It’s never too early to get your child active for life by starting them young and Edinburgh Leisure is offering a free children’s coaching session at Jack Kane Sports Centre on Sunday, 21st April, from 1:00pm-4:00pm, where they can try one or a variety of options.

Suitable for 3-5 years and Primary 1s – 7s, release that inner Sugar Plum Fairy with their dance tasters, where they can try ballet or contemporary or street and hip- hop dance. Help them develop motor skills, balance and agility with their gymnastics tasters and for those that have been inspired by Scotland’s triumph in the Calcutta Cup, there’s Mini Scrummers, a non-contact rugby taster.  There’s also Active Start, where they will be put through their paces in a range of sports and for those children who show athletic prowess, they can try out running, jumping and throwing with the Athletic Tasters.

Each taster session last from 30-45 minutes and booking is essential. Sessions can be booked in person at Jack Kane Sports Centre, by calling 0131 669 0404 or online at https://www.edinburghleisure.co.uk/coachingopenday
