Fit and Ready for the Future.

Our diverse community have been hit hard by Covid 19. With some initial funding, we have piloted a new project to provide fitness and conditioning sessions for Children and Young People aged 4 years to 16 years. Each session lasts an hour and raises their heart rate for at least 50 minutes. 

All Sessions :

  • Are carried out by qualified coaches and Sports Leaders. 
  • Are delivered by Lionhearts Football School of Excellence in partnership with the Oasis Lionhearts Football Club
  • Follow the latest Government and Football Association Guidelines. (Currently groups of 6 people socially distanced 2 metres apart).
  • Use the outdoor space at Hobmoor Community Centre

Richard talks about keeping everyone safe and what to expect when you come to a session.

We want to give more Children and Young People the opportunity to participate in these sessions. We know that Covid 19 has had particular devastation on areas of deprivation. Young People in Yardley where we are based are  3 times more likely to receive free school meals than nationally. As Jordan said in the videos many of them are scared of the future and disconnected from the world.

Richard  talks more fully  about mental health, well-being, and the economic that Covid 19 has had on the community.

Fit and Ready 

Through a set of timed activities, the sessions have shown to increase their motivation, become fitter by competing against themselves, experience the new normal, practice social distancing and regain the skills they will need when they go back to school in September.
