NEW FREE EXERCISE AND FOOTBALL SESSIONS FOR ADULTS

Sunderland AFC charity Foundation of Light are launching two new FREE activity sessions at Thompson Park, Sunderland and Dawdon Welfare Park Seaham, aimed at helping adults become fitter and have more fun.

‘Football in the Park’, a turn-up-and-play football session for adults aged 16+ years runs every Wednesday, 5-6pm (Thompson Park) and Friday, 1-2pm (Dawdon Welfare Park). Pre-registration is not required, just turn up and play.

Foundation of Light coaches will be on hand to facilitate small-sided games, walking football and give pointers on skills and tactics.

‘Soccercise in the Park’ is a free weekly outdoor exercise/circuit class for women aged 16 or over lasting 45-60 minutes, running every Tuesday 10-11am (Thompson Park) and Wednesday 10-11am (Dawdon Welfare Park).

Taking place outdoors on the grass football pitches at Thompson Park, the weekly exercise class combines a variety of exercises with a football to improve fitness and wellbeing.

The class is delivered to music and led by our friendly female staff is for all ability levels. Pre-registration is not required, just turn up and join in.

For both sessions, adults participating can take part in our rewards scheme and earn points for attending, bringing along a friend or completing lifestyle surveys.

They can save up these points and use them to spend on selected items from the Sunderland AFC club shop – i.e. match top, shorts, flags, scarf or against match tickets.

Adults are also welcome to bring their children along if they participate, as coaching staff will also be running sessions suitable for children aged 3 or older alongside the adult session. Adults must take part for kids to be able to attend.

The programme is funded by Sport England and the Premier League Charitable Fund.

Speaking about the sessions, Liz Barton-Jones, Head of Sport and Wellbeing commented: “We’re delighted to launch these two new sessions for adults, and thanks to Sport England and the Premier League Charitable Fund they’re absolutely free.”

“Both Football in the Park and Soccercise are great ways to improve your fitness and health whilst making new friends and, with the weather due to improve, we’re looking forward to working out in the sunshine.”

For more information about both sessions contact Dom Oliver at dominic.oliver@foundationoflight.co.uk or 0191 5634777.
