Manx Sport and Recreation team to host summer activities

A series of summer activities are being launched to allow children of all ages to be active throughout the summer.

The government's Manx Sport and Recreation team and Youth and Carers services are putting together initiatives designed to allow youngsters to enjoy the outdoors and socialise following the lifting of lockdown.

Manx Sport and Recreation will run multi-sport holiday schemes at the National Sports Centre in Douglas with sessions available for children in Reception through to Year 7 and cost £15.70 a day - daily and weekly schemes will be available from July 27 to September 8.

Meanwhile, the Youth Service offer a range of holiday clubs, educational activities through the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, careers advice and support and a wide range of activity sessions.

Holiday clubs are for years 4-6 and other sessions are up to age 18 with sessions from £20 a day with daily and weekly schemes available from July 27 to September 4.

Education, Sport & Culture Minister, Dr Alex Allinson MHK, says: "It’s been a difficult three months for everyone and in particular for our young people. I would encourage children and parents to get in touch to find out more about the activities and support available.

"It is also a great opportunity to have fun, reconnect with friends and meet new people."
