TrySport is a community outreach programme funded by Wyre Council and is delivered by Fleetwood Town Community Trust, Fylde Coast YMCA, and Your Move.
The initiative provides opportunities for young people to increase their levels of physical activity by getting involved in a wide variety of sports, and mixing with other young people from different backgrounds. The programme is held within areas of Wyre which have the greatest health needs and lack of opportunity available.
You can meet new friends and improve life skills such as communication and teamwork skills, as well as sport specific skills like hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness. The sessions are aimed at giving you the chance to take part in sports in a fun and friendly environment!
We currently offer various sports and activities including: Football, Dodgeball, Boxing, Dance, Quicksticks and Glow Games.
Ben has attended dodgeball, tennis and MultiStars over the past three years. “I enjoy trying different sports and making new friends. MultiStars in particular allows me and my friends to go on trampolines and try rock climbing,” said Ben.

Meet Theo Stockton, a regular attendee at our Monday night Dodgeball sessions at Fleetwood Town High School. In partnership with Wyre Council, the Community Trust deliver the TrySport initiative, providing children the opportunity to be introduced and attempt new sports.
Theo’s mum went on to say “Theo is a very loving and caring child, but he is also extremely hyper and loves to be kept busy. Theo adores his friends, family, and teachers/coaches. We believe Theo may have ADHD, as he is very hyperactive and finds it hard to settle and concentrate. This makes clubs and activities difficult for him”
“Monday’s TrySport Dodgeball has been amazing for Theo, he is always kept occupied and entertained, as well as thrives off the attention all the staff are able to give to him and the other participants. Theo adores the staff and I appreciate how patient they all are with him, knowing how boisterous he can be”
“Theo has benefitted massively by this group, as it helps him focus on one activity at a time and helps burn off the extra energy he has. I’ve found he listens to the staff better than other groups he is a part of and this is down to how they treat him.”
Theo then went on to say, “I love going to Corey’s group on a Monday, I have lots of fun with all my friends, Corey and the other people are really fun as well.”
If your child is aged between 6 and 11 years old then why not bring them down to our FREE Dodgeball session from 5-6pm every Monday night at Fleetwood High School!
