Calling all sports fans in Hull


Published by rtownsend for Sanctuary Housing Association in Communities and also in Education, Health

Aspiring Robert Korens are being given the chance to pull on their boots and show off their skills at free football and fitness coaching sessions in Hull.

Sanctuary Housing has teamed up with Hull City Football Club’s Tigers Sport and Education Trust to bring an action-packed day of football fun to young people during October half term and weekly coaching classes.

Open to local residents, male and female, from eight up to 18 years, the day kicks-off at 10am and runs until 3pm on Thursday 1 November at the University of Hull Sports Centre on Inglemire Lane.

Free training sessions will then start the following week and are open to young people, from 11 to 18 years, to attend at Thomas Ferns Acadmey, starting on Thursday 8 November from 7 – 9pm.

As well as getting the opportunity to learn footie skills from professional coaches, the action-packed workshops will also lead to a certificate of achievement for those taking part.

John Hanson, Sanctuary’s head of housing operations (North), said: “This year’s Olympics have really motivated people to get involved in sport and we are delighted that our partnership with The Tigers Sport and Education Trust is able to bring sporting activities closer to the heart of our communities.

“These training sessions are both enjoyable and healthy so why not take advantage and come along to join in the footie fun.”

To book a place or find out more about these exciting coaching sessions, contact Paul Sarel on 01482 304578, or email
