SPORTING stars of the future will get the chance to have their skills put to the test in a UK-first event.

Xscape Yorkshire, near Castleford, has team up with Czech Republic-based SportAnalytik to run Future Sport Stars – a series of fun challenges for kids of any ability designed to find out where their individual sporting skills lie, including suggestions of specific sports tailored to their abilities.

Aimed at encouraging healthy activity, the two week-long free event starting on August 8 is open to youngsters aged five to 15 who can take part in five simple key skills tests based around balance, stamina, agility, flexibility and strength.
