Barefoot and Plymouth Sports Academy have been working in partnership to provide sports and dance activities during the school holidays for young people across the city following 12 successful days during the summer in 2010. Aimed at 5-16 year olds with the idea of getting kids moving, the International Sport and Dance days have been attended by over 700 young people.
The themed days have included sports and dance from America, New Zealand, Ireland, Brazil, Australia and South Africa. During the days participants are able to improve their sporting knowledge, skills and teamwork whilst having lots of fun. Young people also stand to the country’s national anthem and perform their new-found skills to an audience of family and friends.
Barefoot and Plymouth Sports Academy have continued to offer the sessions at minimal cost to participants, helping to ensure the days are accessible to all children in Plymouth.
