 Additional Needs multi sports session on Wednesdays 4 - 5.30pm at Newhaven Fort Road

Offering free, after school session for young people aged 11-16 from the Seahaven area. The session is designed to offer multi sports activities for young people with additional needs. Based at Newhaven Fort Road Recreation grounds,  highly experienced coaches and youth workers will offer a unique opportunity to positively impact young peoples life. Activities will be adjusted to the needs and abilities of participants. All participants are required to register in advance. Registrations must be made by an adult responsible for the participant and must include a valid phone number. We will add the contact number to a Whatssap group and keep you updated with news relevant to the project. The first block of sessions for this project will run outdoors at Newhaven Fort recreation ground and will be weather-dependent.  

The project will run over 32 weeks across 2022 and 2023 starting on July 6th 2022

Additional needs includes: 

1- Special needs: Special educational needs and/or disability (SEND) is the term given when a child has a learning difficulty or disability that makes it significantly more difficult to learn compared to the majority of children of the same age. 

2 - Young people Not in Education Employment or Training (NEET) as the needs from young people in this category are also additional to the majority of children of the same age.

This project also offers a unique exit route opportunity for those young people able to show the right level of interest and ability to keep up with our code of conduct. This opportunity is branded the "HERO" programme and it offers the chance for a young participant, a friend or even a family member to take on sports leadership related qualifications, gain valuable work experience through voluntary work at our club and sponsor a participant's fees at our official local "Force basketball club". By participating at our club, young people will learn useful skills, make new friends and become a valued member of our community. If you want to help a young individual through the "HERO" programme, contact us on 07931237169.
