A Macleod man’s plan to get kids active has hit a Council hurdle. 

Nick Vass has a basketball hoop and soccer goal set up outside his home on the end of a cul-de-sac for the neighbourhood kids to enjoy, but now the Council wants them removed.

‘They received a complaint that the gear is a trip hazard,’ Mr Vass told Neil Mitchell on Thursday.

He will be fined $500 if it isn’t removed by the 23rd.

Mr Vass has been a physical education teacher for nearly 20 years.

‘It’s hard enough getting kids off their iPads,’ he said.

‘This is another hurdle that we don’t need.’
