Children & Young People

The Access to Sports Project is committed to supporting Children & Young people by providing a wide variety of fun safe and high quality sporting opportunities for young people aged 5-19. The project operates in Hackney, Haringey and Islington and offers:

 

Community coaching programmes

The Access to Sports community Programme for young people provides a safe and friendly environment to enjoy sport and develop new skills, ability and fitness. We run a number of sports sessions in a variety of community settings such as local parks, estates, leisure centres, schools and community halls.

 

Holiday Programmes  

We run programmes during each schools holiday for young people in locations across Islington, Haringey and Hackney.  Programmes include: sports specific training, Multi-sports Camps and Competitions.  Young people get the chance to enjoy sport, improve their skills, make new friends and compete in a safe and friendly environment designed to nurture their development.

 

Clubs & Competitions

The Access to Sports Project has links with a number of local sports clubs which provides the opportunity for young people to join local teams and compete in formal leagues or competitions.

 

Coach Education, Sports Leadership & Volunteering

We provide opportunities for Young people (and adults) to gain skills and qualifications as Sports Coaches, leaders and instructors. We also offer opportunity for people to put their skills to use through volunteering opportunities in the local community.

 

Our Objectives

  • Improving health– through a range of sporting and physical activities, providing children and young people with the physical literacy and skills, which will remain throughout their lives.
  • Reducing crime– by providing constructive and creative activities sensitive to the needs of young people who are involved in, or are at risk of being involved in, anti-social behavior and crime
  • Increasing social inclusion– by providing opportunities for participation by males and females, people from minority ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities and people who are economically disadvantaged.
  • Developing People – by using sport as the vehicle for building self-confidence, learning/ improving skills and abilities, working as part of a team and moving people on to access wider provision.
  • Building Communities– promoting social cohesion through volunteering and shared activity.
  • Increasing employment– through the operation of new opportunities and the delivery of vocational qualifications.
