Tell us a bit about yourself

Hi there, my name is Jacob Hare.  I am 17 years old and from Dartford in Kent.

I am presently in sixth form in a mainstream school and am studying biology, psychology and BTEC sport.

What club do you play for?

I am currently a member of the Croysutt Warriors goalball team in Croydon and have been playing for about a year.

Are there any other programmes you are involved with through Goalball UK?

I have recently been accepted onto the Goalball UK ‘Goalball Academy’ and am hoping to continue working with Goalball UK in the future.

What do you do outside of goalball?

I also play VI cricket for Kent and have recently started playing VI football with Croysutt, I also take part in rock climbing and kayaking, all of which I really enjoy. As this may all suggest I am very outdoorsy and have been a member of the Scouts since I was 4, I am currently a young leader with our local Beaver and Cub sections.

We will be chatting to a member of the Youth Forum every weekday again in two weeks time. Who will we be chatting to next? Come back March 29th to find out!
