Sports Participation

Primarily activities operate on a ‘pay & play’ basis and provide opportunities for children and young people aged 4 -16 years to engage in grassroots sport with the focus on fun and being physically active. In addition, Sports Participation activities supports the development of essential life skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication among participants. Engagement in sport has also been linked to increasing confidence, self-esteem and social interaction.

The sessions also provide signposting opportunities for talented participants into Junior Clubs or Barnsley Football Club’s Academy.
