Premier League Kicks is a Premier League Funded programme which aims to use the power of sport and football to inspire young people in high-need areas.
The free, turn-up and play sessions will aim to engage young people aged 8-18 in a variety of activities and sports with the aim of reducing anti-social behaviour and providing opportunities in areas where they are needed most. Along with providing sporting activity, the sessions will also act as a way of signposting the young-people to other projects and pathways which they may be interested in, making sure they stay engaged and will build a stronger community in the areas where they are held.
Across the country the scheme has helped thousands of youngsters find routes into education, employment and sports.
Find out what some of our participants have had to say about PL Kicks:
‘Since starting PL Kicks every Friday, I have something to look forward to every week instead of just being out on the streets. It’s great fun and a great learning experience with all my mates.’ – Alex Grange
‘I have something to do on a Friday evening, usually I would just be walking around the streets. It keeps a lot of the lads out of trouble. Through PL Kicks I have had a great experience of going to Anfield to watch Liverpool v Shrewsbury.’ – Reece Beckett
