Activ8 Wildcats Club.


Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council’s Activ8 Wildcats Club returns this New Year with more fun packed classes taking place at Antrim Forum, Crumlin, Sixmile and Valley Leisure Centres.

Open to boys and girls from 3-9 years, this specially designed after schools club introduces fundamental skills and a positive attitude towards physical activity. Classes will run for 10 weeks and start on Thursday 14 January at Antrim Forum, Wednesday 20 January at Valley Leisure Centre and Thursday 21 January at Crumlin and Sixmile Leisure Centres.

Dean Holmes, Sport & Play Development Officer with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council says, “The Club helps children develop through fun games and activities in a non-competitive environment. Each week children will focus on the abc’s of sport such as agility, balance, co-ordination, running, jumping, throwing, kicking, catching and striking skills.”

Dean continues, “For kids to be involved in sport and physical activity, they need the right building blocks to feel confident in the activity they are doing. The skills they learn will enhance their ability to develop and gain confidence in all areas of sport and physical activity. Activ8 Wildcats is a great way to put those building blocks in place and get our children active for life.”
