The Athletics course is part of the Borough Council's ongoing sports sessions ‘Go For It!' programme launched last month.
The First Steps to Athletics sessions will take place every Saturday (excluding school holidays) at Stafford Sports College from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
Kath Fenn, Sports Development Officer at Stafford Borough Council commented, "We are pleased to offer the First Steps to Athletics course again this year, giving 8 to 12 year olds an idea of the skills and techniques involved in traditional track and field athletics in an indoor setting. Specially adapted equipment will be used for the sports hall environment providing the opportunity for children to try sprinting, throwing, jumping and relays."
