*Sport Works Saturday sessions for children aged 5-11 with additional needs - Short Breaks

Coronavirus Update 

We are back delivering our Short Break sessions in a Covid safe manner and will continue to do so unless otherwise advised through local restrictions. 

Supported by Trafford Council and delivered in partnership with Gorse Hill Studios, these are fun, relaxed and totally inclusive sessions designed to increase social skills, healthy habits and give children new experiences.

The sessions based around creative arts and expressions, as such young people have a complete choice of which to do at each visit.

At the end of the day it is about 2 things; making sure children enjoy themselves and to offer parents/carers a short break! 

These sessions also run during the school holidays throughout the week. 

Sport Works provides engaging and stimulating sessions of mixed activities some developing skills in leadership, group working, communication and organisation, examples of activities are; target hoops, basketball, boccia, dodgeball, tag rugby, hockey, cricket, gymnastics, Danish cricket, tag rounders, street dance, cheerleading, non-contact martial arts, rock climbing, volleyball, new age Curling, bean bag ball and many more

Gorse Hill Studios implements a rolling programme of innovative arts (Drama, Dance, Media, Visual Arts and Music) and youth work techniques to create and provide opportunities, empower participants, increase wellbeing and potential. The group explores and identifies a theme for each session that culminates in a series of skills sharing and show back events.
