Dee Why facility opening part of new era for PCYC in NSW

August 11, 2017

Today’s opening of a new Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) at Dee Why on Sydney’s Northern Beaches is part of a new direction for the organisation, coinciding with its 80 years of operations.

The $25 million project, which has been led by Northern Beaches Council includes two multi-use indoor sports courts, a youth drop in centre and study area, three multipurpose community rooms, PCYC youth counselling space and a cafe on top of three levels of parking for 348 cars.

Aimed at engaging youth on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the facility was opened today by The Governor of NSW and patron of PCYC NSW, His Excellency General David Hurley.

PCYC NSW Chief Executive Dominic Teakle said the new club had already proved to be a huge success with nearly 2000 members and many local people offering their services as volunteers.

Theale explained “with this new presence on the Northern Beaches, PCYC is able to offer an expansion of its commitment to offer programs and services to empower young people, get them active in life, develop their skills, character and leadership and reduce and prevent crime by and against young people.”

Two youth command police case managers will be based at the club to work with young people who have been referred by the local authorities, schools and the police local area command.

Community sports and activities at the club include basketball, netball, futsal, high intensity interval training, group fitness sessions, yoga, Boxfit, Zumba and a whole range of programs aimed specifically at children, including soccer, netball and basketball development, boxing, jump squad and mini movers.

The striking design of the PCYC has created a new landmark for the Dee Why area, with vaulting over the top of the building creating a curved aluminium roof using the same technology as used in the construction of the Dubai airport terminals.
