Salt Ayre offers free sport on your doorstep for 13 to 19-year-olds

Lancaster City Council and the University of Cumbria are joining forces to deliver a new Doorstep Sports Club at Salt Ayre Sports Centre.

A doorstep sports club provides numerous sports and free coaching to young people aged 13 to 19 and has proved popular across the UK.

The two hour sessions led by qualified coaches includes sports such as football, dodgeball, cricket, hockey, rounders, netball and basketball. Other sports are also available on request from the young people taking part.

Lancaster’s Doorstep Sports Club starts on Friday 31st January from 5.00 to 7.00pm and is free for all young people. There’s no need to book, just turn up and join in the fun.

The concept of a Doorstep Sport Club was developed by sporting charity Street Games in 2012 and aims to have 1,000 clubs set up across the UK.

The sessions provide vibrant and varied sporting offer to young people in disadvantaged communities that are designed to grow their motivation and ability to adopt a sporting habit for life.
