Premier League Kicks is the Premier League’s flagship community initiative under their Creating Chances programme.
The programmes overriding aim is to use the strength incorporated within professional football club brands to create opportunities throughout the heart of communities.
The PL Kicks project offers free football sessions for males and females aged 14-19 in high priority areas who may otherwise struggle to engage in mainstream activities.
The scheme looks to break down barriers between the police and young people, reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and find routes into volunteering, education and employment for participants.
The Premier League Kicks scheme is currently ran at 45 Premier League and Football League clubs across the country, helping in execs of 50,000 young people each year.
Working in partnership with the Dawes project/Catch 22, the Premier League and Avon and Somerset Police, the Trust’s newly launched PL Kicks programme is operated as an interactive engagement tool, working with youngsters from an array of backgrounds on a weekly basis, creating a safer and healthier community at the same time.
Bristol City Community Trust currently delivers a Premier League Kicks session every Friday (5.30-7.30pm) at City Academy, St George, BS5 9JH.
There is no need to book on to the programme, simply turn up and get involved!
