PL Kicks has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help youngsters in some of the most high-need areas. By engaging young people in constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports, coaching, dance, educational and personal development sessions, communities up and down the country have been transformed with impressive football and sports participation rates and the authorities reporting significant reductions in anti-social behaviour in the areas in which it is delivered.
We currently have several PL Kicks sites operating across Blackpool & all sessions are free.
As well as the free football sessions, PL Kicks also offers pathways into regular competitive football matches and tournaments with other Community Trust Kicks teams throughout the country.
In addition to traditional football sessions Blackpool FC Community Trust now deliver: Pan Ability PL Kicks for 8 – 18 year olds who live with a disability, PL Kicks Girls Football, PL Kicks Dance and the most recent addition – PL Kicks E- Sports.
As part of PL Kicks E-Sports, we are in the process of developing a brand-new state of the art games room located in the North Stand Community Hub based at Bloomfield Road Stadium. This will include the most up-to-date consoles, TVs and games for young people to be able to access when they attend our new E-Sports PL Kicks session. The session will launch in the October half term as part of our PL Kicks Holiday Activities provision. Limited places are available so please get in touch to book a place.
Community Youth Sports Manager, Adam Aspinall said,
“It’s been amazing to be able to add a range of different sessions into our PL Kicks offer over the last few months. We are now able to engage with more people than ever before and we hope to continue impacting on the young people’s live that we work with.”
