Free sports sessions for teenagers this summer

Tuesday 17 July 2018

Jersey Sport and the States of Jersey Police are teaming up this summer to get as many children and teenagers as active as possible, by offering FREE sports sessions throughout the holidays.

The inflatable football park will be taken out around the island, while there will also be regular opportunities to play dodgeball and short tennis amongst other sports.

“By bringing sport to our local communities we feel we can make a positive impact on the lives of young people,” said Jersey Sport Community Programmes Officer Dan Garton.

“Participants will have the opportunity to play and to meet new friends throughout the summer holidays. We’ll be working in partnership with the police who have offered to help and provide support where needed to increase community engagement.”

The fun sessions will be aimed at pupils in Year 7-11. Details of the venues and times will be released on the Jersey Sport website and social media.

“Sport has huge value within the community and the opportunities provided locally are superb,” added Police Sergeant Paul Kemp from the Community Policing Team.

“Being part of a team, playing sport, making friends doing something that is fun and good for your health at the same time can only be positive.

“The States of Jersey Police are looking forward to working with Jersey Sport as they provide more exciting opportunities for children to take part in a variety of sporting activities.”
