Help us to inspire a new generation of volleyball players and engage the community of Sefton through this tough time is at the heart of our project. We aim to give people a safe space to play and have fun through sport, improving health, wellbeing and bringing people together. We propose to run weekly volleyball sessions at Litherland High School, starting with two teams: Junior and Ladies. Our Juniors sessions will be available to any child attending Litherland High School, from 11 to 17 years old. Giving young people growing up in deprived areas the opportunity to take part in sports while improving their health and keeping them away from dangerous activities. Women are less likely than men to exercise weekly (EIGE) and will benefit from building their confidence and wellbeing through the practice of volleyball. We aim to engage the community of Sefton and improving their skills with volunteering and training opportunities.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We aim to engage the community of Sefton and improving their skills with volunteering and training opportunities. We will: - Improve the health and wellbeing of people in Sefton & North Liverpool through being active and practising Volleyball. - Bring people together, promote positive mental health and promote a welcoming space where people feel they belong. - Engage children and help them live life to the full life enjoying the benefits of sports activities while keeping them safe.
Steps to get it done:
To keep these training sessions COVID-safe, we aim to purchase additional indoor nets and balls. This will ensure we are able to create bubbles within the sessions and avoid sharing equipment between them, thus minimising virus spread. We will also purchase an additional set of uniforms for our members, which they would normally share.
