Over the Easter holidays Nuffield ran a 9 day sports camp with AFYA Sports Training for the Bank of America employees at The Life Centre Chester Business Park.
In excess of 140 children attended the course and they had the opportunity to participate in multiple games and activities. AFYA’s coaching team consisted of high level coaches who have played or coached at professional and international level in a range of sports including Rugby and Netball ( Sale Sharks, Wasps, Scotland, Manchester Thunder and England Netball)
The children were able to benefit from this experience in a fun and demanding environment. Other activities included cricket, tennis and Zorbing as well as Bushcraft and map reading which was run by one of AFYA’s ex Army Officers.
Richard Graham, Programme Director commented that ” it was fantastic to see the children both enjoying and learning from their experiences here at the Life Centre. The parents really valued the opportunity to both see their children whilst at work and see the benefits of what they were learning on the camp”
” We will be running camps in the half term and over the duration of the Summer holidays with AFYA and we are looking forward to hosting The Oxford University Varsity Rugby Team here in September. AFYA has a very close relationship with the team and its preferred charity Winstons Wish and we are delighted they will be running a training session for our members to watch and participate in!”
