YOYO Sport is available to young people across South Yorkshire. Free sporting sessions are provided on most nights of the week in areas across Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.
Reds in the Community are working with the all of the South Yorkshire professional football clubs’ community sports trusts in collaboration for the first time to provide this new initiative for young people. Young people are able to access sports sessions across the county under the YOYO Sport brand.
We are offering young people from the age of 10-years to 19-years the opportunity to take part in football and sports sessions in the local community. The sessions offer young people a healthy activity to participate in on an evening and the opportunity to engage with trusted adults.
To keep up to date with all sessions dates and times, any cancellations and to follow in the fun, we recommend you follow the social media accounts attributed to YOYO Sport.

In addition to the sports sessions, we also provide a number of workshops covering some of the complex issues that young people face. These workshops will be available for all participants and cover topics such as child criminal exploitation, domestic abuse, alcohol and drugs misuse and on-line safety. All of these topics will be available to help the young people make positive choices when faced with decisions now or later in life.
YOYO stands for You’re Only Young Once and is in its second phase after a successful schools initiative produced over 200 podcasts and videos. The media content is available for the YOYO Sport participants to watch and listen to in the workshops and on the YouTube Channel here – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCThL_Cf0gAYmQSMN5aBRrgA YOYO Sport is funded by the South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit in partnership with the Office of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, South Yorkshire Police and the Premier League.
