What’s Senior Club About?
Senior Club is open for young people aged 12-18, and up to 25 years of age for young people who need additional support. Due to Covid-19 restrictions all senior club sessions require booking prior to attendance. Senior Club sessions are currently running on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evening with a full timetable available to download here. At present with current guidelines young people are only able to book onto one session per evening and will be required to wear a face covering in communal areas of the building but not whilst participating in the activity they have booked onto.
WHAT HAPPENS IN SENIOR CLUB?
During a Senior Club session, youth workers are there to provide a service that gives young people space and responsibility.
Each night, we have a variety of activities planned that members are able to join in with – but we also like to go with the flow on the night.
WHAT ELSE IS ON OFFER?
At CYZ, we don’t just run our open club sessions, senior members are also able to take part in
- ‘Get a Future’ – A programme based on creating opportunities for employment, raising aspirations and exploring career choices.

WHO CAN ATTEND SENIOR CLUB?
Anyone from school year 8 upwards can access Senior Club for only 50p entry and £5 per year membership fee. In some cases, we will make allowances for younger (year 7) members to access the Senior Club, but this is on an individual basis and you would need to speak to a team member to organise this.
WHEN CAN SENIOR MEMBERS ATTEND?
GYM ONLY SESSIONS
After school on weekdays (15:00-17:30)
Saturday Mornings (10:00-13:00)
We also run projects on a Wednesday night, which Senior Members are able to attend. Wednesday projects require booking in advance and run generally for 6 consecutive weeks. More information is available on our Wednesday Projects page.
WHAT IS EXPECTED OF SENIOR MEMBERS?
We ask just three main things from Senior members to make sure CYZ is safe and enjoyable for everyone:
- Respect Each Other
- Respect The Staff
- Respect the Building and Equipment
