Find out what we got up to in October + Info on Xmas Chance Camp!

Once again Chance Camp returned for the October half term
break for a week filled full of sports activities. We started the week at Netherhall
Sports Centre for 2 days of tennis followed by 3 days of invasion sports at Cocker-
mouth RUFC. As with previous camps, the mornings were filled with lots of learning
and developing physical and social skills. During the tennis camp we spent a lot of
time developing forehand and backhand technique. This was to make sure the chil-
dren had the correct grip and swing, allowing them to improve their rallying skills.
During the invasion sports camp the children were tasked to improve their ball
skills when throwing/ catching (hands) and passing/ controlling (feet). Those skills
were then implemented into a series of different competitions and challenges in the
afternoons. During the first 2 days the children competed in a squash and mini
Wimbledon Championships and at Cockermouth we had a handball, touch rugby
and football tournaments.
As always the children that attended the camps worked really well with each other
and made great progress in developing their sport skills. We also received great
feedback from both children and parents, with our parent reviews increasing from
the camp!
