Comhairle Come and Try It Day
In partnership with Waterford Comhairle na nOg, we held a free Come and Try It Day in the People’s Park on Saturday 15th September. Activities on the day were Archery, Zumba Dance, Boxing, Muay Thai and Yoga. Great to see so many young people get involved in the different activities. Thanks to all the clubs who provided the activities on the day.
Boxing Taster Session
Three boys from the TYRE project in Tramore tried a Boxing taster session, facilitated by local Boxing coach Jimmy Denton from Tramore Boxing Club. The boys enjoyed the session so much that they requested a programme so we hope to get this going in the new year.
Yoga Taster Sessions
Seven junior leaders and WIT placement students from the Ballybeg Special Youth Project took part in two Yoga Taster sessions. Facilitated by Steven Rockett of My Yoga Waterford. The sessions consisted of relaxation and breathing techniques and also included a number of Yoga poses such as Downward Dog, Triangle, Bridge, Tree and Warriors poses. Yoga is a great activity that enables us to take ‘time out’ from our busy lifestyles.
Barnardos Activity Day
In partnership with School Completion Programme Dungarvan, we organized and facilitated an activity day for ten young people with Barnardos. The day consisted of fun activity games including Football, Basketball and Boxing Fitness. Thanks to Theresa for facilitating on the day, Dennis from Dungarvan Boxing Club and also Dungarvan Sports Hall for the use of their facilities.
Four members from the TYRE project tried Mountain Biking for the first time, as part of National Bike Week 2018. Under the guidance of Dermot Blount of Tramore Bike Tours, we set off to Carrigavantry Lake for some excellent off-road mountain biking. Thanks to Dermot for bringing us on some excellent routes and well done to the boys and girls from the TYRE project for giving it a go.
