A group of Hastings College education majors gave more than 100 kids the opportunity to have fun while learning about new sports during an event at the college this weekend.

The Hastings College Sports Skills Session was a two-day event giving Hastings students in kindergarten through second grade the opportunity to learn about soccer, volleyball, baseball, football and basketball.

Margaret Humphries, one of the event’s six organizers, said the goal was to create an event focusing on sports and nutrition that would target younger students not already served by the Kids Fitness Day at the college in the fall.

“We wanted to focus on smaller children so they could come and enjoy sports and learn about healthy living and being active,” she said.

On Saturday, about 60 students from Alcott, Longfellow and Morton elementary schools filled the inside of the Physical Fitness Facility on the HC campus where they learned about the different sports.
