Youth get moving this may

Local youth are invited to join the City of Canterbury Bankstown for FREE group sport sessions, for the entire month of May – Movement May.

Residents aged 5-16 years can take part in:

  • Junior oztag – Mondays (4.30-5.30pm) at Belmore PCYC, 332-344 Burwood Road, Belmore (5-12 years);
  • Mixed sports, including soccer, basketball, boxing, cricket and oztag – Wednesdays (4.30-5.30pm) at Bankstown PCYC, 55 Meredith Street, Bankstown (5-12 years); and
  • 5-a-side social football – Fridays (4.30-5.30pm) at Amour Park, Marco Avenue, Revesby (5-16 years).

Bankstown PCYC Club Manager, Alistair Foggo, said he’s excited to offer FREE annual memberships at Bankstown and Belmore PCYCs to participating youth, as part of the initiative.

"It’s so important young people develop good habits around active and healthy lifestyles early on, so they can continue this into adulthood," Mr Foggo said.

"Group classes are a great way for young people to learn new skills and, at the same time, make new friends.

"I would encourage all eligible youth to give it a go because they have nothing to lose. I encourage them to try something new, that way they find what they like best and can maybe start something up on a more permanent basis."

Youth will have even more opportunity to get involved, with both sporting and artistic programs set to begin in May, including:

  • Drop-in sessions – with a sports component, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 2 May-29 June (3-5pm) at Belmore Youth Resource Centre;
  • Youth Art Club – Tuesdays from 8 May-26 June (4-6pm) at Bankstown Arts Centre;
  • Twilight Sports – a FREE seven-week, non-competitive indoor sports program, Saturdays from 12 May-30 June at Bankstown Basketball Stadium (12-18 years); and
  • Twilight Plus – Fridays from 11 May-29 June (7-11.15pm) at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre (18-25 years).

Mayor Asfour said Canterbury-Bankstown is home to more than 117,000 residents under the age of 24, all with enormous talent, dedication and passion.

"I see our young people kicking goals all over the City – from the incredibly talented singers in our Talent Advancement Program, to our swimmers bringing home medals at every meet, to our young volunteers who help those less fortunate," Mayor Asfour said.

"That’s why it’s important we also find ways for them to get together, meet new friends and challenge themselves."
