YOUNGSTERS wanting to try something new for the new year can sign up for coaching sessions in golf and athletics at the Ryland Centre.

The golf sessions are being organised for children aged seven or above on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5pm, and they aim to teach any budding Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy the basic skills and techniques of the game.

Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletics Club is also organising junior coaching sessions for young athletes from 11-15 years old, which focus on fun ways to perfect technique in key athletic skills including running, throwing and jumping.

The golf coaching sessions are taught by PGA qualified coaches from the Bromsgrove Golf Academy, led by Graeme Long, and cost £35 for a five week course.

The athletics sessions run on Wednesdays from 6-7.15pm and are £3 per week.

For more information on the golf sessions contact Graeme Long on 07812 029615 or e-mail, or for more information on the athletics sessions contact the Athletics club chairman Len Quartly on 01527 501580.
