Youngsters having an active summer

We’ve had a busy summer and are pleased to be reporting youngsters across Fife have been taking advantage of free activities this summer.

So far, we have recorded over 31,000 under-17s have taken up the offer of a free swim and nearly 3,500 have enjoyed free racquet sports and football.

The family-popular schemes are being delivered thanks to funding by Fife Council and this year, the investment was extended to make racquet sports and football free during the school holidays. The move was designed to get more young people active more of the time and is available across our facilities.  

We are delighted we have managed to keep all seven of our pools open this summer despite well-reported global shortages of chlorine supplies and a nation-wide demand for qualified lifeguards.

Emma Walker, chief executive for Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, said: “We have a few more weeks left of the school holidays, and I would encourage youngsters to take advantage of the free offers. I’m really pleased with the number of families that have attended our facilities and I’d like to say a big thanks to our teams for working through the unprecedented challenges of related to chlorine suppies.”

The summer programme is part of Go Fife, a campaign launched by Fife Council and its partners at Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, Fife Golf Trust, Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, OnFife (Fife Cultural Trust) and Welcome to Fife to bring a fantastic range of activities and experiences suitable for all ages and interests throughout the region this summer.
