Free Youth Inclusive Archery programme launched for Omagh Leisure Complex

18th April 2018

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has organised a free 12-week Inclusive Archery programme for young people aged 8 to 17 commencing at Omagh Leisure Complex, on Tuesday 24 April 2018.

Two sessions are available, 4pm – 4.45pm and 5pm – 5.45pm. The free sessions, organised by the Council in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA), as part of the Healthy Towns West programme, will be delivered by a fully qualified coach.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Stephen McCann, said: “Being physically active is important for health and well-being. Involvement in physical activity from a young age can help develop and encourage life-long participation in activities which will support a healthy and active lifestyle. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is delighted to work in partnership with the Public Health Agency to provide this opportunity for our young residents to get active through archery and I would encourage all participants including those with a disability to get involved in the programme.’

Places on the Inclusive Archery programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Participants must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or carer for the duration of each coaching session.
