Flintshire Young Ambassadors in partnership with Sport Development hosted the Us Girls 5×60 Games at Deeside Leisure Centre on Wednesday 20th March. The main aim of the day was to encourage disengaged females to have the opportunity to try different activities and take part. The event had over 140 females participating from high schools across Flintshire and were selected by the Sport & Community Sport Officers. Every individual was set up with an Aura Card to monitor their activity after the event to see the impact the day had.
The Young Ambassadors set up, delivered, supported NGBs and encourage the participants to get active on the day, the activities included: UV Volleyball/Hula Hooping, Golf, Cricket, Gymnastics, Trampolining, Netball, Rugby, Kinball, Boxercise and finished with an ice skating disco.
During the day Dan Williams and Emma Jones from Street Games Wales had the participants note down what type of activities they wanted to attend in the community and which areas would be accessible to themselves as a result they have set up 2 new community sports hubs for girls.
