FOOTBALL UNITES US THROUGH COVID-19
Sports academies offers children, young people and adults of all backgrounds and abilities the opportunity to enjoy and participate in training mentored by qualified and experienced coaches. The football delivery model focuses on player technical development.
1) We use sport to engage with communities to build a cohesive environment, as well as qualifying local residents to help them move into sustainable employment whether it is with our program or another.
2) To give opportunity to communities that may not have been able to obtain privileges others do.
We have over 6 years experience of building community sport academies. We originally set up in the Olympic park to continue the Olympic legacy for London's brand new neighborhood E20. With over 1500 members we have been able to create a community football, athletics, boxing and tennis project for the residents of the Olympic park and beyond.
