Dalton pupils hone sports leadership skills

SECONDARY school pupils are set to develop their leadership skills and spread their love of sport to younger children.

The Year Nines from Dowdales in Dalton are taking part in a Sky Sports Living for Sport project, which will see them learn to organise and deliver their own sporting sessions with primary school pupils.

Over the next eight weeks, the group of 12 youngsters will be given weekly training to improve the communication and organisation skills they need to work with younger children.

The culmination of the project will be a football tournament for primary pupils, hosted by the Dowdales youngsters at the Dalton secondary school.
