Young athletics’ club is flourishing
A relatively new school of athletics is proving a great success in Granadilla.
More than 40 children have joined and are enjoying training at the soccer field in Charco del Pino.
The athletics’ school was founded two years ago and its members are aged between five and 14. Training takes place on a Monday and Wednesday from 4pm to 7pm and allows the youngsters to practise athletics, cross country, long and high jump amongst others.
Councillor for sport, Marcos González said it was a great achievement and there was now a good pool of children who were enjoying the sport. It was something which the locality had asked for and the council was delighted to have helped as it was a great way of promoting a healthy lifestyle via schools.
The young squad was recently presented to parents and supporters.
