A £2million renovation and extension project has seen the former Phoenix Youth Centre transformed into the Daventry Phoenix Sports Academy, offering state-of-the-art facilities. The centre provides a range of sport and exercise services, and runs various events throughout the year.
The Daventry Phoenix Sports Academy is fully accessible, with a wheelchair-friendly access lift, and new toilets, showers, and changing areas on both the upper and lower levels (including male and female disabled facilities).
The centre offers Rebound Therapy, which uses floor-level trampolines to develop key movement skills. It is particularly suitable for people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, sensory impairments, and autism (ASD). Rebound Therapy is used to facilitate movement, promote balance, promote an increase (or decrease) in muscle tone, promote relaxation, promote sensory integration, and improve exercise tolerance.
A consultation meeting will be held before classes begin. The multi-sports program can be adapted to each child's needs, and all activities are led by a fully-qualified coaching team, and delivered in a fun and structured manner.
The revamped and extended multi-use sports hall features a new sprung floor, new gym equipment, two floor-level trampolines, and a new pitted dismount area. There’s also an extended spectators’ area, which is located in the newly-refurbished café.
The centre offers a multi-sports program, which includes traditional activities (such as gymnastics, basketball, judo, and cricket) plus some more unusual activities (such as yBall, tchouchkball, 360ball, polybat, kurling, and futsal).
