Samantha Keogh

 I'm Sam and I have been an athletics coach for around four years. My love for sport started when my children joined an Athletics club in my local area. Following this I could see how much fun they were having and decided to give it a go myself. I loved it! 

 I have worked with children for a number of years, in schools and community settings. Completing my degree in counselling adults and young people and also my second degree in childhood studies. 

 However, my passion lies with local communities. I want to build a community group where sport and physical activity is available for everyone. Opportunities to volunteer and meet new people whilst having fun. Also for children to gain added skills with my knowledge of the sport and make new friends aiming to allow them to feel part of something. 

 I can't wait to meet you all at the group.
