North Riding FA is delighted to announce that females looking to get fit will soon be able to access a series of brand-new sessions to help them do so – Soccercise.
Taking place every week, Soccercise are one-hour fitness sessions for females, with a little bit of football thrown in. Sessions can be tailored for all levels of fitness.
It can also help introduce you to football, re-familiarise those who haven’t played for a while, form part of a pre-season training programme, become part of a pre-match warm-up or just be used as an alternative way to keep fit.
The inclusion of footballs adds co-ordination and core stability to familiar exercises. It builds skill and confidence of working with a football. Footballs are provided and you don’t need specialised kit just trainers and comfortable clothing.
Please see below for details of the sessions taking place locally:
Starts: Monday 1 October 2018
Where: Grangetown Youth and Community Centre, Grange Farm Road, Middlesbrough, TS6 7HP When: Every Monday at 9.30am
Where: Macmillan Academy, Stockton Rd, Middlesbrough, TS5 4AG When: Every Monday at 6.00pm
Soccercise sessions are being organised through North Riding FA and funded by Tees Valley Community Foundation as part of their ‘Getting the Inactive Active’ programme. The programme, ran in partnership with Sport England, aims to support local community groups to target inactive people in there are and encourage them to introduce sport and physical activity into their lives.
Stephanie Turnbull, Football Development Officer at North Riding FA, said: “We are really excited to get this initiative up and running. This is an excellent opportunity to get inactive females active through the fastest-growing sport in the county. All sessions will be within a fun and positive environment where everybody will be made to feel comfortable.”
