Physical activity youth (8 to 18 years)

Our youth physical activity programme

It is recommended that all children and young people up to the age of 18 should be active for an average of 60 minutes per day, every day. This means doing an activity that makes you breath faster and feel warmer. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t need to be all in one go – it can be spread across the day!

Need some help achieving this?

We have a programme of Street Sport sessions for young people aged 8 to 18 years old. Sessions are completely FREE to attend and are led by qualified and experienced sports coaches in parks, schools and playing fields across North Lincolnshire.

Activities at the Street Sport sessions include dodgeball, rounders, football, cricket and many more fun games to get you moving. Follow our latest updates on our Street Sport Facebook page.

Football or dance more your thing?

Try the On Target programme! FREE football and dance sessions are open to young people aged between 8 and 19 years old on a Friday evenings. On Target sessions are led by qualified coaches from Scunthorpe United Community Sports and Education Trust and StreetBeat.

A signed, parental consent form [PDF, 1Mb] is required prior to taking part in your first session of Street Sport or On Target.

There is also a range of positive activities for young people advertised on the Positive Activities North Lincolnshire website.

How to take part

You can take part by getting a parent or guardian to complete the parental consent form [PDF, 1Mb]. If you are 18 or 19 years old you can complete the form yourself. You can pick one up at your first session. This must be completed to enable the young person to take part.
