Premier League Kicks
Premier League Kicks uses the power of football and other sports to connect with young people in some of the most deprived regions across the UK.
The youth outreach programme began over ten years ago, with the aim to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people’s potential, whilst providing access to facilities, coaching and mentoring.
Fleetwood Town Community Trust began running the Premier League Kicks programme in September 2016 and the project has grown from strength to strength.
In its first decade, Premier League Kicks has engaged 205,650 young people in weekly football coaching sessions held at local community venues across the UK. The programme is now run in 776 venues.
In 2019, Premier League Kicks extended its offer even further by promoting and delivering inclusive and female specific activities to the local community.
The project enables young people 8-18 years old to engage in activities such as football, dodgeball, boxfit and glow sports to name a few! We also encourage volunteers to support the initiative and the development of the participants involved, and in return, they get the opportunity to gain sporting qualifications.
The Trust have engaged with over 850 young people since the launch in 2016 across Fleetwood, Thornton Cleveleys, Over Wyre and Garstang.
We are also part of the Premier League Kicks North West Division 2 and play competitive fixtures along with friendlies each month against other local opposition.
