Two weekly activity development centres and matchday visits

Shrewsbury Town's Community Sports Trust is offering two weekly activity development centres and matchday visits specifically for children with disabilities or additional needs aged between five and 14.
The children will be coached by the club's community staff and invited to take part in a variety of sports, among them basketball, netball, football, tag rugby, athletics, cricket and hockey.
The main aim of the course is to build confidence, independence, to improve and develop social sills and an understanding of team work, in a FUN and SAFE environment.
The centres will operate on Thursdays between 4pm and 5.30pm at Sundorne Games Hall for five to eight-year-olds, with the first block of six weeks starting on April 18. It will run until March 2014.
There will also a centre each Friday between 4pm and 5.30pm at the STFC Power league, next to the Greenhous Meadow, for nine to 14-year-olds beginning on April 19. This will also run until March 2014.

They will run in five to eight week blocks depending on when half term falls.
Then each child successfully attending a block of sessions will be invited to a Shrewsbury Town home match for their presentation where they will be awarded certificates and prizes before taking part in a group photograph on the pitch.
