The new Hawkesbury Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) has officially opened and taken over management of Hawkesbury Indoor Stadium since the start of this month.
Though the stadium is open competitions will not make a return until the last week of the month, from Monday, July 27.
"We can't wait to get involved in the community and help the youth of the area," said PCYC Hawkesbury's David Zammit.
"We are excited to have a PCYC in the Hawkesbury and we want to service the community anyway that we can.
"This is going to be a long process, by the end of the build we want the community to have something to be proud of."
PCYC Hawkesbury will be offering the same community sports the stadium was prior to the change in management, though their winter competitions will be for a reduced period, due to the shutdown.
"We will run a lightning comp until we get to the regular summer competitions," said David.
"We will also be running after school programs, the learn to play programs, along with police programs called the Fit For programs.
"They will be targeted towards at-risk kids and will introduce young kids to the various services, like the police."
PCYC will be operating under COVID-19 restrictions, such as the four square meter rule for indoor facilities.
"We've measured it out and are restricted to how many people we can have in each area," said David. "There will be no access to bubblers or showers for the moment."
A yearly PCYC membership is required to access the PCYC facilities. A senior membership is $25, kids membership is $10 and kids involved in the Fit For programs can sign-up for free.
