What can you expect?
For 3 and a 1/3 hours (4.30- 8pm) young people have access to the indoor stadium and the games room. In the stadium you can play ball (basketball) or football (soccer). You can get open access to the court, or if you bring a crew you can organise a game- maybe half court.
In the games room, there is a PS4 and the favourite game is FIFA 2018. You can battle this out, or wait for your turn on the PS4. Some people like to challenge their friend or a drum worker to a game of table tennis or pool table. It’s pretty fun, not too competitive but that doesn’t mean that people take this business serious! It’s fun but competitive for sure.
Can we help you attend?
You really just need to show up. But is you are shy or aren’t confident about doing this you can give us a holla and one of our friendly youth workers can make you feel comfortable and welcome.

Is permission required?
Short answer – yes. Click on this link to complete simple registration form.
ALSO – You can just turn up and meet other young people. If you start attending regularly we will ask you to complete a registration form.
Why do you need to complete a registration form?
the drum’s registration form should have all the dets you need, and also for your parent, guardian or carer. The form outlines what the activities are, including ours and yours responsibilities. We also need emergency contact details, we usually don’t need them, but just in case we need to contact your parent, guardian or carer in case of an emergency. It is also useful to know – and if we don’t ask – we don’t know about any spiritual, health and wellbeing needs you may have.
If you are under 18 the registration form needs to be signed by your parent, carer or guardian to complete registration form.
If you are over 18 you can sign this for yourself but we’ll still need some emergency contact details.
We absolutely keep your information confidential and we respect your privacy.
