What a Summer at Lifestyles Croxteth Sports & Wellbeing Centre!
During the summer break, Lifestyles Croxteth Sports & Wellbeing Centre was packed out with young people from our local community and beyond! There was plenty on offer to keep everyone very entertained and motivated; as well as helping working families too.
Croxteth Sports Summer Play Scheme: Coaches from our centre were on hand to provide fun to our young people during the six week break. Plenty of sporting activities were available from table tennis, football, tag rugby as well as a mixed ‘Mini Metafit’ session…which proved very popular!
LFC Foundation hosted a 3 day football camp: More than 50 children attended this camp. Everyone enjoyed playing football for 5 hours a day, learning new skills…plus learning from some of the best coaches!
Merseyside & Cheshire Elite Boxing hosted a 4 day boxing camp: The boxing camp was attended by 75 participants from clubs across the area and was headed by the England & Regional coach; John Warburton. On the final day we had the pleasure of Mayor Joe Anderson visiting who was very impressed with all who was involved. The Liverpool ECHO were on hand to capture this and produced an article about how well the camp went. To read more click here
