Umina PCYC plans to resume classes
Umina PCYC is planning to resume classes for a number of different sports this week.
Club manager Mr Paul Sharpe said classes would include gymnastics, boxing, strength and conditioning, and archery.
The classes will be altered to maintain restrictions on social distancing.
Mr Sharpe said that the gymnastic classes would involve half their usual activities, avoiding the ones that involve contact, such as tumbling.
All boxing classes will be non-contact, with no sparring.
The PCYC started a Fit For Life program last week.
Mr Sharpe said this was an early intervention program that incorporated physical fitness, nutrition and social engagement, developed with local communities targeting at risk youth aged 10 to 17 to improve their overall wellbeing, as well as local police-indigenous relations.
Mr Sharpe said he was looking forward to recommencing the services of Umina PCYC for all their members.
"We're here trying to provide an essential service," he said.
"Our service here is to keep kids off the street and so our biggest thing is opening up our doors."
