In the past Blackpool FC Community Trust have offered Premier League Kicks sessions across Blackpool for School Years 3 – 11 whilst creating opportunities for young people at the heart of their communities.
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, music and 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.
Due to Covid19 we had to suspend our community provision however, we have continued to release; boxercise videos, dance sessions & FIFA tournaments online in order to keep in touch with young people who would normally attend PL Kicks or Kicks Club.
BFCCT along with Premier League Charitable Fund and other clubs across the country, have been working together to make sure the sessions are as safe as possible for when the young people return.
Michael Brown, Community Sports Manager said, “We are currently preparing to relaunch our PL Kicks programme. It’s a really exciting time as we gear up to start delivery face to face. I know the young people of Blackpool and BFCCT staff are desperate for this return. PL Kicks will look different, and lots of measurements are being put in place to make sure everybody is as safe as possible upon our return”.
