August 2020

This summer we were pleased to get our young people active across communities in Merseyside since the lockdown. We ran a range of positive healthy activities for 8-14 year olds to get involved in in several locations around Merseyside and worked in small groups ensuring they learn and improve their all-round skills and techniques in a safe friendly learning environment with the help of our HYPE coaches and volunteers who continue to help and support young people with their skills.

KickArt

Our Kick-Art workshops ran throughout August where young people could improve their football skills and cultural knowledge, they ran from the following locations:

  • Birkenhead Park, Birkenhead
  • Guinea Gap Leisure Centre, Seacombe
  • Carr bridge Centre, Woodchurch

Sebastian & Alexander’s mum – “The brothers have improved their football skills each week they go back, KickArt is a really good initiative to allow children to enjoy and play football now we are out of lockdown and allows them to have interaction with other young people after not being able to for months, and the coaches have been excellent.”

Jacob “I have learnt loads of new football skills this week and I have really enjoyed it.”

Over 150 young people took part in our KickArt workshops and each child received a healthy lunch each day and left each workshops, learning new skills and with more confidence

Bike workshop and ride

Our bike workshop and ride took place at our new centre at Campbeltown Road, Birkenhead. In each workshop our experienced bike mechanics worked with young people covering all aspects of bike maintenance and road safety.

“My son Ted attended the Hype Cycling Course. Just to say thanks very much, he had a great time and learnt so much. He has got the job of bike mechanic in our house!”

Family bike workshops

Our Free family bike workshops were something for the whole family. We partnered up with Barnstondale Centre and had access to their facilities for the workshops. Each workshop focused on educating parents and children on basic bike maintenance, road safety and provide access to our learn to ride scheme.
