Youth Programs

The Youth Services team run a great range of programs at Somerville Recreation Centre for young people in the local area. 

Youth Drop-In 

Somerville Recreation Centre offers a Youth Drop-In Program for all kids aged 10 - 17 years.

Our Youth Drop-In Program gives young people a safe space to hang out with their peers. Participants can stay for half an hour or the whole 2 hours - it's totally up to them!

The program allows kids to spend the afternoon meeting new friends, playing cards or board games, racing each other on the Nintendo Switch, having a hit of table tennis, or playing four square. This program also gives the children an opportunity to interact with the local Youth Services team.

Free Basketball Skills Session

A basketball skills session is offered on Friday afternoons for anyone ages 10 - 18 years. Whether you are new to the sport or have been playing for a while, this session allows you to build on your skills with the help of qualified basketball coaches.
