Description

We are a non profit community interest company and a community amateur sports club which is dedicated to provide quality sports and coaching facilities for children within our local area!
Each school holiday, children are missing out on vital physical activity from their PE lessons and substituting it for a more sedentary lifestyle. Our aim is to offer children a way of accessing fantastic opportunities to come to a central venue and participate in a number of different sports from 9am-3pm over the school holidays. Each day will include coaching from local, qualified coaches in sports from Football, Cricket, Hockey, Netball etc so that there is something for all children of any ability! Our events will offer children a way to try out new sports, develop skills such as coordination and communication, interact with new people.
Another issue that is highlighted in children during the school holidays is malnutrition. Due to parents heavily relying on free school meals, feeding their children over the holidays can be a very expensive task, especially with the low amount of household income. Our venue has the capabilities of supplying each child with a free lunch while they are participating in the Activity Days.

AA SPORTS CENTRE CIC

The main reason I’m really proud of this project and organisation is that we are possibly the only indoor sports facility with 5 x 3G football pitches that are not for profit which was privately funded by ourselves in the North East or even possibly the uk.
