February Coaching Camp - What a Week

 

This year our February Half term Coaching Camp was, once again, a great success.

Held at Nicholas Breakspear on the 3G Astro, the coaches (all are the product of the City Youth Young Coaches programme) supervised all those attending over the five days of the camp. Numbers for the February Camp continue to grow with over 200 attending over the week.

Our next camp will be over the Easter Holidays, dates to be confirmed shortly.

A big thank you to all the parents for continuing to support our camps plus well done to the coaches for making it all possible.

This camp was held as part of the Herts Sports Partnerships Coach Education Week 18 and the Hertfordshire Year of Physical Activity.

In addition this was all made possible thanks to the support of the National League Trust.
