BE Active returns next month with a host of activities for youngsters and a brand new partnership with Everton Soccer School. The programme, designed by Sefton Council’s Active Sefton team, will ensure that young residents get a healthy dose of outdoor fun to burn off those sweet treats and encourage them to try out new sports and games. Mini Blues and Reds will have the chance to learn from Everton trained coaches and develop their skills at the new soccer schools. While there is also a chance for youngsters to enjoy Come and Try sessions covering gymnastics and archery. The Easter Egg’stravaganza Day will see children take part in a number of enjoyable and challenging activities, such as obstacle courses, adventure games and dodgeball. Other events taking place across the week include preschool swimming crash courses, Crosby Lakeside Adventure days, discounted Swim and Splash sessions and many more. Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “The Easter break is a great holiday for the whole family and I am delighted with the programme that is on offer for youngsters across Sefton. “The Be Active programme goes from strength to strength every school holiday and even more so this Easter thanks to the new partnership with Everton Soccer School.” Be Active takes place at venues across the borough from Monday, April 3 to Friday, April 7 and Monday, April 10 – Thursday, April 13.
