The Hull FC Community Foundation has launched FC inclusive hubs to engage, educate and inspire people to take part in physical activity sessions regularly.
The sessions, which will be delivered free of charge at the Bonus Youth Performance Centre twice a week, will begin on Tuesday 11th October from 5pm until 6pm specifically targeting children under the age of 14 to take part in weekly sessions involving physical activities, learning new skills and socialising with new people.
The second session is for anyone over the age of 14 on Thursday 13th October from 7pm until 8pm to take part in a wide range of sports and provide young people the opportunity to exercise in a friendly environment.
The Hull FC Community Foundation team will deliver 100 sessions twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and there will be two festivals during the project to showcase the project.
Mike Swainger, the lead coach of the project, said: “I’m looking forward to the disability sport hubs. This will give the opportunity to participants to try new disability/inclusive sports.
“We will be delivering various sports: boccia, badmington, goal ball, plus many more, including wheelchair sports.
“Participants can come down to try the sports, socialise and have fun. We will also give participants the opportunity to develop new skills and a pathway in local, established clubs.”
Hull FC Community Manager James Price added: “I’d like to thank Awards for All for the funding they have provided to help deliver this exciting programme.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to help develop the work Hull FC Foundtion do around health, inclusion and the role sport plays in this.”
