‘DARE To Be Different is an innovative new project from Northend United Youth being held in the Ballymena North Centre each Wednesday night for the next 10 weeks.

The course is specifically aimed at young persons aged 8 to 16 who have never played football before or who have gradually drifted out of the game.

Split into three different age groups, participation is planned as follows:

2002s to 2004s - Wednesday 16th January to Wednesday 30th January

2000s to 2001s - Wednesday 6th February to Wednesday 20th February

1997s to 1999s - Wednesday 26th February to Wednesday 20th March

The course has free admission and is designed to not only encourage young people to lead a healthier lifestyle through the medium of football but also has an educational element built
into it.

Open to any young person in Ballymena who fancies a kick around, Application Forms can be obtained from the Ballymena North Centre, from any Northend Coach or by printing off a copy on Northend’s website

Demand is expected to be high for this course, so early registration is essential.

Northend’s Project Coordinator John Devlin explained: “All at Northend United Youth are delighted to be giving something back to our local community, without whose help, Northend wouldn’t be in the position it is

“We’d also like to thank the Joint Committee of NIPB/DOJ through the Ballymena Policing and Community Safety Partnership for funding and encouraging our new project,” added John.
