The medals are back as Freedom Leisure seeks active kids for school summer holiday challenge!

Freedom Leisure – which operates Helenswood Sports Centre, Hastings, on behalf of East Sussex County Council- challenges children to stay active through the summer holidays. The Junior Summer Fitness Challenge asks youngsters aged 4-14 to pledge to be as active as they can during the school holidays from July 20 to September 5.

Children taking part receive a fitness diary to record their activities. Each diary has 10 spaces to record the chosen activity which must be at least 30 minutes in duration. On completing the first 10 activities children will receive a free voucher for activities such as tennis or badminton at their local Freedom Leisure centre. If a second diary is completed they receive an activity voucher and small prize. If a third diary is completed they receive a Junior Summer Fitness Challenge medal and certificate.

The aim of challenge is to complete 30 physical activities throughout the course of the summer holidays.
