New Hub Club lauched at LeAF Academy
Posted: Tue, 18 Oct 2016 11:57
The Hub runs every Tuesday 5.30-7pm at LeAF Multi Sports Centre where participants have the opportunity to take part in badminton, dodgeball, football, volleyball and more! The sessions target participants aged 13+ and all abilities are welcome. The cost is £2 and all participants will get their first visit to the hub free of charge!
The hubs offer a social youth club environment and active feedback is welcome on all activities and sports via the Your Sport Activators, who strive to put on activities that suit the participants. The aim is for the activities to grow around the suggestions of the participants, facilitated by the young Activators who help to lead the day-to-day running of the hubs.
Lead facilitator of the LeAF Academy Your Sport Hub Lewie Lett coached the Team GB Beach Volleyball team for three years, reaching the top 30 in the world and qualifying for 2015 European Games. Lewie has just returned from Rio where he was commentating at the Olympics & Paralympics. Having worked in over 80 schools coaching and running leadership projects Lewie will be a great support to the young Activators leading the sessions.
Lewie commented; "I'm really excited about the Your Sport sessions, I have just set up a company called Playground To Performance which specialises in developing learning, leadership and well-being through sport and also coach education. It's a big opportunity to combine the two strands of the company, give back to up and coming coaches, while delivering a really special and fun concept to the youth within the area."
Your Sport Hubs, funded by Sport England, intend to grow the number of young people playing sport by offering a range of sports and activities within a social environment with the aim to open more hubs across Dorset.
