FRE Flyers: the Multi Sport Club for everyone

ABOUT US

Born in 2011, the FRE Flyers, inspired by London 2012 Olympic Games, are a group of young people, both boys and girls, aged 11-25 from East London.

For us, the Club plays an important role in our lives… its a place to build the kind of skills you need to get on in the world, a place of new opportunities and experiences, but most of all a safe place where we come together as a family to have fun.

It doesn’t matter to us if you have never played sports before as we are a family, made up of different abilities, interests and needs where all that we see is the potential of our young people, both in sport and beyond.

Since 2014, hockey has been our roots and we have been running a successful programme at the Lee Valley Tennis and Hockey Centre, attracting a very diverse group of boys and girls. We’re particularly proud of the fact that young people of different abilities and disabilities become fully active members of the FRE Flyers family. In 2017, we plan to fulfil our original promise to create a Multi Sport Club giving young people in the boroughs around the Olympic Park opportunities to get involved in a range of sports and activities.

With proper safeguarding and well organised activities, we are creating what you might think of as a dream youth club - still with the values: Friendship, Respect and Excellence at their core.

We’re building on what we’ve already done to nurture our young people, to raise their aspirations and work to achieve them by providing connections with mentors; opportunities for educational support and work experience. We are also working hard to develop the infrastructure which means that the FRE Flyers will be here for generations to come: an outstanding legacy of London 2012.

Why are we different?

Young leaders play a central role in the day to day running of things. The club is for its members and lead by its members with support from an experienced coaching and support team.

There are lots of opportunities to get involved and everyone is welcome. We are open to all and best of all FREE to join!

If you are interested in becoming a member or maybe even volunteering to help out, then please get in touch. You can pop down to say hello and once you’ve experienced the FRE Flyers, we are sure you’ll want to stay.

Come and join us!

We are based at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with multi sport sessions running every Friday and if you’re up for it the opportunity to play matches against local teams.

FRE provides a safe and secure environment with excellent coaching and support. Our family focused approach means that we understand and account for all of life’s pressures to make sure the club works for everyone.

OUR CREED: FRIENDSHIP, RESPECT & EXCELLENCE

It was the young people who first got involved with the FRE Flyers back in 2011 who chose the name, which stands for:

F-R-E

F - Friendship is a foundation of the club and, it runs through everything we are and makes us a family.

R - Respect is the value we place on, and in each other and is central to our ethos.

E - Excellence, we strive for it in the experience provided for all our family members, and in everything we do.

Friendship, respect and excellence are the values of the Olympic family and they form the basis of our club... our family.

There is always an explicit focus on our values at every FRE Flyers activity session and events. All new members, volunteers, employees and partners are inducted into them. Where the values are present, they are acknowledged and celebrated. Where they are insufficiently present, they are encouraged and cultivated.

FRE MULTI SPORT FRIDAYS

2017 sees the introduction of our FRE Multi Sports Friday Club - re-inventing the multisport club. In partnership with London Youth Rowing and the Tennis Foundation – we are providing a unique opportunity to come along and have a go at Hockey, Rowing and Tennis – coached by some of GB’s finest coaches. Best of all, it’s FREE!

FRE Flyers provides a safe and secure environment with excellent coaching and support. Our family focused approach means that we understand and account for all of life’s pressures to make sure the club works for everyone.
