Introducing the Active Young People Team!
We've had a busy winter working with schools and local communities all over Swansea to make sure there is ample opportunity for young people in Swansea to stay active.
As a team we work with the early year's right up to young adults. Our mission is to listen to young people in our schools and communities, and tap into their imagination to create opportunities for fun, sport and recreation.
Our balance bike sessions have taken off like a storm this year. Our qualified coaches Adam, Nathan and Charlie have been seen out and about in numerous communities providing bikes and activities for a first real taste of cycling. These sessions are the first stage to helping children gain the balance and co-ordination to ride a bike, a skill that will help Swansea become a city of cyclers and give children a valuable skills for life.
Following in their footsteps our Bronze + YA's attended training in January. These pupils are about to kickstart projects and initiatives throughout our Secondary schools in Swansea.
With these projects and more it has been a great return to sport for schools and communities across the city. We have seen run, throw Festivals in primary schools, physical literacy training for teachers, community hubs being set up for balance bike and dodgeball sessions, Us Girls camps, Streetgames sessions and much more .
We hope to see you soon at one of our activities, and if you don't already, keep up to date by signing up to our Sport and Health mailing list and following us on social media on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to hear our news and find out more about The Active Young People Team.
