Meet Zoe Lucas, our Community Children’s and Youth Outreach Officer
“My aim is to inspire young people by promoting sport and physical activity to the local community. I have always had a passion for sport and wellbeing and have since enjoyed coaching children. Throughout school I was part of various sports teams such as netball, rounders, hockey and now compete nationally for Nottingham Athletics Club in 100m hurdles. At secondary school I studied BTEC Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness) and volunteered by coaching youth athletes which allowed me to see the benefits that physical activity has on physical, mental and social health.
I have now graduated from Nottingham Trent University (BSc in Exercise, Nutrition and Health) and Leeds Beckett University (MSc in Sport and Exercise Nutrition) and would like to share my knowledge and experience with young people. I began my journey volunteering for a sports charity, and I would like to give back to the local community by inspiring the next generation to take every opportunity available to them and encourage them to have big aspirations.
My role at the YMCA is to provide an inclusive programme for all and offer outreach support to young people in Newark and the surrounding areas. As well as supporting local youth clubs, schools, communities and partners to provide out of school activities for young people. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding youth sport provision at the YMCA and if you would like to see any other activities delivered at the Community Village.”
