Heard of the old saying that a healthy brain needs a healthy body? Well, we believe that balance is crucial for any student because sports and academics work side by side and helps learning the process by vetting out any negative emotions through physical sports activity. We facilitate most sports from football, swimming, playing pool or horse riding - its all good!
Projects can take place anywhere, youth centres, libraries, on the streets, in the parks, and the community centres so to speak. Often, it’s the fact that we are community engaged and led which helps young people to engage.
Self-esteem cannot be handed to kids; they have to earn it. Competitive Sports is one way kids earn self-esteem. When you develop a talent and work hard for a result, it feels great. When you fail and learn that can bounce back, you feel more confident in yourself because you understand that you have resilience.
When something is out of our comfort zone or pushes us to perform, it’s normal to feel fluttery within. Competition brings those butterflies out, so we can work on managing them.
Our young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid.
