Free Inclusive Archery at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum for young people aged 8 – 17

Published: 12th April 2017

A free 8-week Inclusive Archery programme for young people aged 8 to 17 will commence at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen on Monday 24 April 2017.

Two sessions are available, 6.30pm – 7.30pm and 7.30pm – 8.30pm. The free one hour sessions, organised as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s 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 Every Body Active 2020 programme to provide this opportunity for our young residents to get active through archery.”

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 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 one hour coaching session.
