Youth Week

Youth Week 8-16 May 2021


Sport Whanganui, collaborating with several sports clubs and activity providers, is set to bring some fun to Youth Week for Whanganui’s rangatahi. Numerous sports and activities will be available for anyone aged 12-19 to try. Its all about the fun, experiencing something new, hanging out with friends, and making new ones. YESS, Whanganui’s Youth Empowering Sports Squad, made up of eleven rangatahi, are behind the project.  

 YESS member, Eloise Bradshaw, explained, “This programme is awesome for a small community, something as simple as playing basketball on a Friday night for fun can make such a difference. People can try all these different sports; they don’t have to be good at them. I can’t wait, it’s definitely going to be fun, and it’s been great to be part of making this happen.” 

Be part of the fun!
