West End Community and Sports Hub
The West End Community and Sports Hub are made up of 3 sports clubs, 1 sporting organisation and 3 local community groups. The group is primarily based in the West End of Dundee and the area they are looking to develop is spread between Riverside playing fields & changing rooms and also Magdalen Green area and resulting Bandstand.
Riverside Community Sports Club is a newly established Community club who currently cater for boys and girls Football players from 6 - 13. They have successfully just started their 1st adult men's team giving the boys a complete sporting pathway.
2 new sports' clubs have recently joined the group and they bring with them 2 very different sporting opportunities. Judoki Judo Club is a recently established evening and weekend Judo Club based at children as young as 9 through to Adults. Primarily based in the West End of Dundee this is another fantastic opportunity for children & young people to keep fit and learn discipline whilst enjoying a fun, new activity.
The West End Boxing Club have been delivering in the area for over 30 years now. They have a history of unearthing local talent and producing terrific boxers. The group also considers itself to be a way for the young people from Dundee to enjoy keeping fit and healthy whilst developing their fitness levels and skills. The club has recently had to move out of the West End to train in an adequate facility and they are hoping by joining the group to keep the club's heritage in the West End of Dundee.
The Saturday Morning Football League is a competitive Football league which runs weekly throughout the usual Football season. This year the league has 20 affiliated Men's adult teams and caters for over 250 recreational footballers each week.
West End Community and Sports Hub is in the process of becoming a registered SCIO through OSCR and they are hoping to launch a new website in early August 2012. The committee have recently created a Facility Development Plan for both the Riverside playing fields & pavilion and also Magdalen Green area.
The group are actively recruiting new sports clubs and community groups into the West End Community and Sports Hub and have been in discussion with 3 well established sports clubs who are based in the West End of Dundee. It is hoped that they will bring new fresh ideas and a new look on the Community Hub committee. The group have also set up a partnership with a local Walking Group Officer who is going to work with the committee to develop healthy walking routes throughout the West End for local resident's and Community members.
