PCYC throws open doors to members

SAYING he had calls everyday from young people asking when they could get back to having fun at the centre, Bankstown PCYC manager David Adams said he was thrilled to be able to open the doors last Monday.

Presently offering boxing, basketball, mixed sports and drumming after school, Mr Adams says martial arts and soccer are on the way soon.
“Parents can have every confidence that our centre is completely safe after we undertook a deep clean of the building and all of the equipment over the break,” he said.
“We have hand sanitisers everywhere and are adhering to the social distancing protocols.
“I think a lot of the kids must have been lonely over the break and missing their friends so it is wonderful to be providing them with our services again; we are here for them Monday to Friday until 8pm.”
With school holidays looming on July 6, Bankstown PCYC will be offering a 10am-4pm program daily, costing $125 when you book for five days but the creative kids voucher can be used to bring down that expense by $100, with the standard BYO food and drinks.
PCYC operates 64 clubs across the state, with more than 110,000 members and 70,000 youth members, allowing police to engage with community members through sporting, recreational, cultural and educational activities.
“While it was necessary for PCYC clubs to close during this unprecedented time, it’s timely for their good work to resume in a safe and carefully managed way,” Mr Elliot said.
