The young people that have been attending our Street Sports sessions have been asking for a Swimming party for a while and on Saturday 30th March we were finally able to provide this for them.
We picked up some young people from Les Genats Estate in the mini bus and some met us at Beau Sejour. The young people really enjoyed the swimming party, with the inflatables and music being a big hit. We saw lots of imagination as games were invented and challenges set by the young people.
Street Sports is a community programme that aims to improve sports provision for young people. It is an opportunity for young people to be active, socialise, have fun, play sports and learn new skills. Staff provide the equipment and deliver a variety of sports including games and variations of many traditional sports that lend themselves to a ‘street’ setting. With guidance from staff, participants are very much involved in the plan and decision-making for each session and are given the choice of which activities they would like to do. Young people can just turn up, register with a member of staff and join in.
