Students take part in Community Games

Youngsters play range of sports at NSC

Students from across the Isle of Man have been taking part in a range of sports at the NSC.

The Microgaming Community Games is in its third year now, and is an initiative to get more young people involved with sports on the Island.

Aimed at 11 to 16 year olds who don't consider themselves athletes already, the games offer a relaxed setting for pupils to discover a sport they enjoy.

Physical activities included snooker, skateboarding, and swimming.

Students were also given the chance to make music today with the Youth Service's Sound Check scheme.

Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, Graham Cregeen MHK, said he hopes students will stay involved with sports they found fun by joining a community club.
