Lace up your trainers and get involved with North Lanarkshire Leisure‘s (NLL) innovative and exciting sports programmes: Friday and Saturday Night Project and Street Soccer.
The purpose of NLL is to deliver sport, recreational, health improving and social welfare services to the community of North Lanarkshire. NLL want to be all encompassing and ensure that sport is available to everyone, and not just those who are able to pay for it.
For this reason they are proud to offer two amazing initiatives.
Friday and Saturday Night Projects
Every Friday and Saturday evening NLL centres are closed to the public and are made available for the young people in the community to come along and enjoy a range of sporting activities including football, dance, badminton, basketball and swimming.
The Friday and Saturday Night Projects, which have been running with NL Leisure for over three years, provide a fun and safe environment for young people to socialise with friends and play a variety of sports.
They also provide young people the opportunity to seek advice from the coaches of their venue on many different challenges they face in life.
The best part about these projects is that they are completely FREE of charge and all you need to do is turn up on the night.
NLL like to encourage friendly competition and therefore each week, they also run various sports competitions and challenges.
Under 16s have to be accompanied by a parent/ guardian on their first night to complete a registration form.
All venues run from 6pm – 10pm with the exception of Calder Community Centre which runs from 6pm – 9pm.
