The West Ham United Community Sports Trust is aiming to carry on the legacy left by the might of the 2012 London Olympic Games by welcoming youngsters back to their after-school activity clubs once the new term starts again.

As debates about sport in schools and local communities go on, the club's Community Sports Trust will once again provide a number of different sporting and educational activities for youngsters aged five to 14 years.

When the school summer holidays end and winter starts to make an appearance, there will be still be lots of ways children from across east London and Essex can stay active inside and outdoors.

An array of sports, from football to tennis and handball to volleyball will be on offer, with trained coaches leading the sessions. All are designed to offer enjoyment and encourage new skills, while at the same time introducing youngsters to sports they may not have tried before.

Mick King, West Ham United Community Sports Trust Chief Executive, said: "West Ham United is taking a lead in providing high quality after-school coaching in a range of Olympic-inspired sports. We are providing opportunities for young people to channel their enthusiasm to participate in new sports and achieve their personal best."

The after-school activity clubs are just one part of a wide ranging partnership the club has with organisations and schools throughout the local community.
