After Dark

PCYC Queensland’s After Dark youth development program is a free after-hours sport-based activity program for young people aged 12 -18 who are likely experiencing some level of disengagement from community, family, or school.

The program is designed to empower young people by improving physical health and wellbeing, emotional resilience, self-esteem, and confidence using sport in a safe and structured peer environment.

After Dark is delivered on an ongoing weekly basis utilising PCYC Queensland’s facilities. The primary sports offered are Basketball, Boxing, Touch Footy, and six other endorsed sports that can be chosen. The program serves as a safe place for young people to come and participate, make friends, and engage in a weekly sports-based program with program mentors and Queensland Police Officer’s supervision.
