Multi Sports Sessions

Newry, Mourne and Down District Council multi-sports sessions provide the opportunity for primary school aged children to take part in active, fun and rewarding sporting activities. The focus of the sessions is to help and support each child’s development and enjoyment. The main benefit of the multi-sports camps is to allow children to try many different sports at a young age to broaden their interests and knowledge in physical activity.
