Youth Takeover

The Youth Takeover is a new initiative for young people launched in 2023. This is an opportunity to make local community facilities more accessible for young people, at a time when they are currently not being used. 

The sessions will be unstructured, but facilitated by qualified sports coaches. The format for the sessions will be multi-skills, with different activities being made on offer.

The intended outcomes of this initiative are to:

– Open-up leisure centre and community facilities to young people. Allow young people to engage with and use facilities available to them to their full potential.

– Provision for young people to connect with others in their community – promote social connection.

– Maximise usage of indoor facility space in communities at a time when it is not currently being used, safe space for young people to participate in sport and physical activity with a qualified coach.

ELY TAKEOVER – The Hive Leisure Centre (Leisure Park, 15 Downham Road, Ely, CB6 2FE), every Friday (from 3rd February 2023 onwards) from 4.45-6pm.
