PYC Out of School Sports Programme

Funded By


The Pilmeny Youth Centre are delighted to announce the return of our successful Out of School Sports Programme. Thanks to the People's Health Trust and the Garfield Weston Foundation we have obtained a portion of the necessary funds and are able to provide three of the five days of the provision. Details on individual clubs can be found below. Previous project evaluations can be found on the Community Projects page.

Mini Sports Club - Tuesdays
Primary 1-2, 3:30pm-5:00pm

Targeting local children in Primary 1-2, our programme incorporates activities that children may not necessarily have access to in their home environment including various sports (football, badminton,
uni-hock etc).
With a maximum of 10-12 places available for each session children will benefit from learning to enjoy sports and games activities and to hopefully achieve a future active lifestyle, and to adopt the values of fitness and healthy living.

Junior Sports Club - Wednesdays and Fridays
Primary 3-5, 3:30pm-5:00pm/12:30pm-2:00pm

Working with local children in Primary 3-5, the Junior Sports Club is the next stage in our Out of School Sports Programme. The club follows on from last year's sport provision and provides the children with a more challenging array of sports and games designed to encourage physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. A maximum of 10-12 places are available for each session.


The clubs will function right through the school terms but will take short breaks during the school holidays. Small snacks will be provided free at each session. The Pilmeny Youth Centre will be used as our main base, but we hope to get out and about as much as possible, weather permitting, for small outdoor games. Qualified staff will attend the club sessions and funds are also set aside for any trips or outings we may arrange.

Further details on all aspects of the club can be obtained from the youth centre. Pop in at the office or call 0131 554 0953 during office hours.

P-KAD Project. Our Pilmeny Kick About Nights moved a step closer to reality with capital funding support awarded by the Gordon Faser Trust, The John Watson Trust and the Rank Foundation. The generous contributions from all three funders has allowed PYC to lay the "foundations" for our winter evening sports projects with the purchase of four portable floodlight rigs that will allow PYC to facilitate evenings sports activities - 4 a side football - Basketball - Unihock etc at the two recreational areas contained within Dalmeny Street Park. Two ideal sites, used by local children and young people, from dawn to dusk in the Spring and Summer evenings, but lie redundant as soon as the clocks change in October. When the dark nights flood in....its all systems go for P-KAD
