Activity For All
Our mission is to get communities active. We run activities both out in the community and at our venue in Bootle – Merseyside’s best indoor sports centre.
Activity for All, formerly JM Sports Coaching, was founded in 2004 and focuses on developing sport in the local community, giving access for all to take part and enjoy physical activity. We believe sport has life-long benefits to health and wellbeing and therefore strive to provide an opportunity for people to participate in sports and physical activities that are relevant and engaging. We particularly target areas where sports participation is low, and make sport accessible, affordable and inclusive. Our popularity continues to grow because of the dedication & professionalism of our team of coaches. Sport has played a major role in all of our team’s lives and we aim to pass this enthusiasm for physical activity onto every individual, whatever their ability.
Activity for All in the community
Our primary objective is to aid in the development of Physical Activity in Schools and Communities throughout Merseyside, Cheshire and surrounding areas. We currently work in partnership with over 150 local schools as well as Community groups and local organisations to identify areas of need and increase participation levels. We aim to focus on the creation of sports and physical activity that will benefit the participants and the wider community no matter what their needs or preferences.
One example of our work is our ‘Play for a Pound’ club which runs daily from 3.30 – 5pm at our Bootle Stadium sports centre. This club is available to all local youngsters aged 4 – 11 years, participants simply turn up and participate in a range of activities delivered by our qualified team of coaches. Over 30 youngsters attend this club daily. This club is funded by our partners JM Recruitment, Education & Training.
We hope you believe in our ethos and are able to join in some of our community work. If so we would love to hear from you on any ideas you might have to help keep our local community participating in sport and physical activity!
Our Venue – Activity for All hub CIC
At the heart of the Bootle Community, Activity for All’s sports centre is based at the old Bootle Stadium site on Maguire Avenue. We are a Community Interest Company and our purpose built centre consists of 3 large 6 a-side football pitches which can also be used for tennis, netball, badminton and a range of other activities.
You can simply contact us to hire a pitch or court, or come along to our range of Classes & Sessions for both adults and children. We also run kids parties, coaching programmes, holiday courses, adult fitness classes, school tournaments, corporate events and much, much more. Get in touch to see how we can help.
We also work in partnership with JM Recruitment, Education & Training to offer a range of courses and apprenticeships for post 16 learners.
Activity for All’s centre has recently undergone a huge refurbishment to modernise our facility. This has included re-canvasing of the larger dome, 2 new 3G pitches, state of the art LED lighting, complete refurbishment of the lounge & bar area, update and expansion of the viewing area and 3 new classrooms / offices. We are planning further work in the near future to ensure we continue to achieve our goal of providing the best sports arena to the community in Liverpool and Sefton. Watch this space….
