The Children’s Weekend Sports, known in Icelandic as Íþróttaskólinn and offered to kids ages 2 to 6 by local sports club Völsungur, will return this winter on Saturday mornings at the Húsavík Sports Hall. The popular weekend activity has been organized and coached by Áslaug Guðmundsdóttir and Unnar Þór Garðarsson for the past 10 years. When they announced their final year last year, it was unclear if the Weekend Sports would continue. Last week it was announced that Guðrún Einarsdóttir and Ísak Már Aðalsteinsson would coach and organize this winter.
“We are excited to take over and we encourage thouse who have moved to Húsavík in recent months to get in touch and join us on Saturdays,” says Ísak Már, one of the organizers “We remind parents and guardians to attend as well and to make sure that the kids are dressed for the activities. This gives the parents the chance to see their kids take the first steps in sports”.
Kids born in 2014 and 2015 can attend on Saturdays this winter from 10:30 to 11:20, and kids born in 2012 and 2013 from 11:20 to 12:10.
