Free Girls Teen Fit Programme at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen

Published: 4th May 2017

A free 6-week Girls Teen Fit Programme for young people aged 13 to 17 will commence at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen on Tuesday 16 May 2017 at 4pm.

The free one hour sessions, organised as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s National Lottery-funded Every Body Active 2020 programme, are part funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and will be delivered by a fully qualified coach.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, 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 Sport Northern Ireland’s National Lottery-funded Every Body Active 2020 programme to provide this opportunity for our young residents to get active.”

Sport Northern Ireland Chair George Lucas commented:

“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working on the delivery of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often.”

Places on the Girls Teen Fit Programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Participants must be complete and return a registration form.
