A football course will kick-off in Bradford next week.
The second round of the Council-run Striker 9 scheme will start on Tuesday at five Bradford leisure centres.
The sessions will be open to any youngsters between the ages of five and 15, catering for all skill levels.
Councillor, the Reverend, Paul Flowers, Bradford Council’s executive member for sport and leisure, said: “This football scheme has been a major success since it was introduced in Bradford. It provides young people with the chance to develop their football skills in a fun and challenging way and also helps them learn the value of following a healthy and active lifestyle.
“These sessions are being rolled out due to popular demand and we look forward to even more young people coming along and taking on the Striker 9 challenge.”
