Kids had a ball at Clydebank Leisure Centre last week as they took part in another fun-packed Ready, Steady, Roll session.

The classes aim to help develop gross motor skills by jumping, climbing and balancing, as well as fine motor skills through exciting hand apparatus.

Sessions are available for children aged one to four, although the session the Post attended last week was for three and four year olds.

Taken by coaches Louisa McFarlane and Paul Cavana, the youngsters had the chance to burn off some energy and learn new skills through games and stretches.

The hand apparatus change every week, and this week balls of different colours and textures were used before the kids went on to enjoy soft play.

They then helped tidy up before winding down with a sing song.

Louise told the Post: “A few have been coming since they were one and a half and it’s always good to see them back and developing their skills.

“We have a few new kids too and they are all very good.

“I have been taking the classes for a couple of years now and I love it.

“I’m a big kid myself, which I think you have to be to take these classes.

“More should come and try it because the kids love it too and they learn loads, including colours and numbers.

“The parents that come always say it’s a great class, which is nice to hear.”

Sports development community programme classes like Ready, Steady, Roll run in blocks which coincide with the school calendar.

The next block starts on Wednesday, October 24 and runs until December 12.
