Popular Twilight Sports back again

SKILLS, fitness, team work and confidence are just a few of the things teens have achieved while participating in City of Canterbury Bankstown’s Twilight Sports.

Tai Tran, 13, from Belmore Boys High School, says he can’t wait for the program to start up again this Friday, February 14.
“It’s something I look forward to all week … I always want school to finish early on Fridays so I can have fun at Twilight,” he said.
“I have met so many people since I started the program and have made some really good friends, especially my team mates.”
Twilight Sports is a non-competitive, seven-week sports program for children 12-18 years old.
“It is a good way to end the week, playing and eating with your friends,” Tai said.
“The best thing about it is that it’s not about winning, it’s about having fun … every time my team loses we just laugh it off.”
Mayor Khal Asfour says the program is so valuable for the young people of our City.
“Something as simple as an after school program has turned into a weekly occasion which local youth are thrilled to be a part of,” he said.
“Twilight Sports aims to engage young people in physical activity while providing them with positive role models, access to other youth support services, volunteering opportunities and ultimately boosting their self-esteem and resilience.”
The program is back again in 2020, with term one taking place at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre, Riverwood. It is entirely free and includes dinner, uniforms and transport home each week.
