active young people

With 30,400 of the AREA’s population aged under 19 years, we will be developing a wide range of innovative programmes including free swimming lessons for those receiving pupil premium support, learn to swim and the Junior Summer Fitness Challenge to encourage young people across Arun to be more active. As a nation, this is the first time that those having children in this decade, may out-live their children as a result of inactivity.

Freedom Leisure has a responsibility to provide affordable and engaging opportunities for our young people across Arun. We continue to work with numerous organisations including local schools, looked after children, Neighbourhood improvement team and the Arun Youth Council to develop even more activities for those aged 5-19 years.

School Sports Delivery

Our team of coaches work in a number of schools across Arun delivering curriculum support, and extracurricular sessions. We aim to support schools in increasing the opportunities and amount of activity for their children, offering a wide variety of sports. Please get in contact if you would like to find out what we can add to your schools programme of activities.
