2017 Youngsters Active and Healthy through Sport Initiative

Monday 23 January

Robins Coaching Staff in Partnership with Langley Mill Community Scheme.

Langley Mill Community Group has linked up with the Robins Coaching staff, Derbyshire County Council, DCC Youth Service and Derbyshire Police to provide an outlet for the youngsters in Aldercar, Langley Mill and neighbouring areas to provide quality sports training and games with guidance on healthy eating, well being and diet. Arts & Crafts Workshops for 7 to 16 year olds will also run alongside the scheme; an initiative as popular as sports.

The events will take place at Aldercar High School Sports Hall, Langley Mill on a weekly basis, plus extra sessions during school holidays, including visits to the Robins’ home ground for games and sports workshops.

The enterprising scheme has been created by the group’s Manager Sheena Trower and Vice Chairman John McCulloch. The group is enthused about the project, with great support and involvement provided already by Steve Welsh and the other Robins coaching staff (Ilkeston FC has already provided first class coaching at school holiday events held in 2016).

The group is delighted to report a substantial award from the Community Chest of Derbyshire County Council to launch this scheme. Derbyshire County Councillor Paul Jones, who prioritised the scheme for the award, presented a cheque to the partnership of the Community Group & Ilkeston FC at the home match which took place on Saturday 21st January 2017.

The sessions commence at Aldercar High School during the half term school break on the 15th February 10am- 3pm, followed by regular weekly sessions beginning Wednesday evening 15th March 6pm – 7pm (under 11s) and 7pm – 8pm (ages 12 upwards). Arts & Craft workshops (partnered by Aldercar High School) will run on the same dates but 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. for all ages. 

The events are free subject to prior registration. Forms available as follows – , mobile 07846 438426; contact Ilkeston FC 01159444428 Or Derbyshire Youth Service MAT Team 01773 746174.
