Football in goal

It’s going to be an EPIC half term

Zorb football and multi-sports are on offer for children and young people this half term when Doncaster Children’s Services Trust’s EPIC team comes to Edlington.

The free activities, held at The Recreational Centre for ages 10-17, will begin on Monday 12 February and will run for the rest of the week.

Team EPIC (Encouraging Potential, Inspiring Change) are specially trained in archery, fencing and Key 2 Potential team building activities designed for young people to develop their mental toughness and resilience.

The team aims to support and challenge young people about the risk of getting involved in crime and encourage them instead to participate in positive activities, with the hope of diverting them from anti-social behaviour and crime in the community.

EPIC’s Team Around The Streets, Project Lead Chris Lambert said: “We know that young people often feel there isn’t much to do, so we are hoping they will enjoy getting involved in these activities.  

“It’s not just fun and games. We’re going to be sharing the positive message of encouraging young people to use their time constructively to give them a greater sense of community and how their actions can impact others.”

Activities planned for the week:

  • Monday 12 February – Zorb football, 1pm to 3pm and EPIC Football, from 6:30pm to 8pm
  • Tuesday 13 February – Positive activities session, 11am to 12:30pm
  • Wednesday 14 February – Archery session, 11:30am to 12:30pm
  • Thursday 15 February – Fencing session, 11:30am to 1pm
  • Friday 16 February – EPIC Football and Multi-Sports, 11:30am to 12:30pm
