Region: Republic of Ireland

This project has been running since the beginning of the Get Back Challenge, and involves providing a range of sports for children in designated disadvantaged areas of the City. The multi sports programme takes place in St Mary’s Park, Southill, Ballinacurra Weston and Moyross, and allows the children in these areas access to structured activities, with trained professionals, who teach the children sports skills in a fun and safe environment.

Last year nearly 300 children took part in regular multi sports clubs, who would not have been members of other clubs and therefore would not have had access to regular structured sports activities on a regular basis.
