Did you watch the Olympics and Paralympics and think that you’d quite like to get into sport? Here are some sporting ideas…
If you want to follow in Jessica Ennis’ footsteps and take part in athletics, why not find out what running clubs there are in your area? A good place to start looking would be your nearest sports centre.
If you’re interested in Judo, why not try out the Ryedale Judo Club who train at the Northern Ryedale Sports Centre?
Gold medallist Nicola Adams started boxing when she was eleven. Check out York Boxing Club for training ideas.
If Ed Clancy’s gold medal in cycling inspired you, you could join the White Rose Youth League who organise cycle races in Bradford, Sheffield and Barnsley.
Leeds brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee got gold and bronze medals in the triathlon. The Leeds and Bradford Triathlon Club have youth teams for 8-19 year olds that you can join.
Why not try diving? Yorkshire Housing customer Michael Brown trains at the Bradford Esprit Diving Club. He trains 20 hours a week, even when he is studying at school and teaches younger children to dive too.
There could be lots of different sports to try that are organised on your doorstep. Find out what is going on in your local community centre, church hall or sports centre. Or, see what sports taste sessions are on offer in Yorkshire by clicking here.
