Halo teamed up with organisations across this county to launch Halo Sports Stars, one of the most comprehensive sports projects for children in the region designed specially for 3 to 11 year olds. This programme is going to be all about friendship and fun and learning new skills such as how to rock climb, ride a bike, play rugby or cheerlead, trampoline or do gymnastics (the list goes on - there are as many as 15 different options).
We want children to realise how much fun sport can be, and how much they can individually achieve - so all sports will be run and supervised in a very supportive but non-competitive environment. We know sport can open up opportunities for friendships and fitness and new-found and very healthy passions for the future if it's introduced to children in the right way. We're also delighted that we've been able to team up with sports professionals from outside Halo - including ballet schools, local sports clubs and the Welsh Rugby Union - to deliver such a full and exciting schedule.
Sports Stars activities run throughout the day (for pre-schoolers) and after school and at weekends at all Halo centres. We are beavering away putting together the latest timetable of exciting activities. Please visit again soon or keep up to date with Halo facebook.
