Session information

Monday | Sports Award

An action packed and varied course. Attendees learn to play a wide range of sports, develop their sporting skills and prowess, learn more about their own strengths and weaknesses, and embrace the benefits of inclusive sports and physical activity.

Participants who attend regularly will be able to work towards a basic sports leadership certificate and/or Level 1 Sports Leadership qualification with Sports Leaders UK. Every 4th week attendees enjoy a trip out into the community allowing them a chance to have fun and build social confidence within a supportive group environment and highly public setting.

Wednesday | Gardening & Craft

This exciting project gets young people learning gardening skills and socialising in the fresh air at our allotment. As well as developing gardening techniques and finding out more about where our food comes from, the group is working towards becoming a social enterprise with an environmental mission to get out and use their new-found skills to brighten up community outside spaces. The group will also take part in craft activities if the weather is bad. Based at our allotment in Redhill as well as other sites around Reigate and Banstead.

Wednesday | Sports

Inclusive sports and circuits to showcase young people a range of sporting and physical activities that are inclusive and adaptable to meet a variety of needs.

All participants receive basic training and those who wish to do so will be given the opportunity to work towards a level 1 ,2 or 3 in Food Hygiene. Along with functional skills attendees also develop experience working within a team based environment, supporting each other to achieve common aims, whilst building social skills and confidence engaging with a wide and varied audience consisting of peers, café customers and YMCA staff and affiliates.
