Session Descriptions 

Junior Netball:
As the only Junior Netball session within Scarborough and Whitby, this session will aim to improve the netball skills of 8-14 year old girls, working on passing, catching, movement, attacking, defending, match play and set plays. Led by qualified Netball coaches, this session will be coached with opportunities to play games.

Leisure Morning:
A multi-sports activity session aimed to encourage all ages to socialise and meet new friends whilst doing light exercise. The emphasis is to have fun and try different activities, such as Boccia (adapted bowls), badminton, curling, table tennis, short tennis, and walking football.

Walking Netball:
Walking Netball is a slower version of netball at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to injury, to those who hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone. Walking Netball is ideal as someone can start gently and build up gradually, aiming to do a little more each session. Older people who take part in Walking Netball will see many benefits: lower heart rate and blood pressure, less fat and more muscle, and better mobility. 

Walk to Run Beginner:
These sessions are led by qualified Run Leaders, who will support and motivate you on your way from walking to running, The beginner group is a gentle introduction to developing running, with a concentration on building confidence and running techniques. This session will cover routes up to 5km. 

Walk to Run Improver:
The improver Walk to Run group is a more advanced session as the time spent walking is gradually decreased and the distance covered during the session is increased. This session is suitable for those who have a medium level of fitness and have been running before. This session will cover routes between 5km and 10km. 

Back to Netball:
Back to Netball provides women 14+ with a gentle re-introduction to the sport. Run by passionate coaches, sessions cover the basics of the game and finish with a friendly game. There is also the opportunity to tell the coaches the skills you would like to work on and sessions can be adapted around that. From losing weight, developing the body’s cardiovascular system and improving muscle tone, taking part in Back to Netball is great for you in so many ways. 

FA Just Play/Female Only Just Play Football:
Just Play is recreational football at its best it’s about turning up for an hour of exercise and a bit of fun. Just Play is great for when you want to play without commitment. The sessions are for all abilities and perfect for those who haven’t played in a while. Sessions are flexible and sociable and an FA qualified Just Play organiser will ensure you have fun on the pitch whatever your fitness or ability.

FA Just Play Walking Football:
The only difference to mainstream football is no running only walking. The game is small sided, with very little contact and kick-ins instead of throw-ins. With less stress on the body and no real sudden change of direction, the game allows all participants to play in a safe environment.

FA Mash Up Futsal (currently only delivered in schools):

Handball (currently only delivered in schools):
Handball has been described as football with hands, water-polo without the water, and basketball with nets. What it is, is the most exciting, high scoring, action packed team sport that can be played anywhere by anyone. As there are so many elements of different team sports combined into one, many people will be able to understand the game very easily. Not only is Handball great for your fitness levels, it is a very social sport through which you can meet lots of new people.
