Football in the Community launch new PL Kicks competition “Try Active”

Mansfield Town Football in the Community are proud to be supporting the Premier Leagues latest initiative the #StayWell hub, by launching a new activity to encourage participants to Stay Home, Stay Active and Stay Connected.

The new #StayWell hub from the Premier League provides a wealth of resources to help people struggling with the lockdown imposed by the coronavirus outbreak, including advice on setting goals, keeping active and connecting with others.

Mansfield Town Football in the Community are proud to support the hub and have launched a new competition to incorporate the hubs’ goal-setting and staying active ethos, with youngsters encouraged to sign up and challenge themselves with the chance to win some fantastic prizes.    

Titled ‘PL Kicks: Try Active’ the competition will see PL Kicks coordinator Amy Page set a series of physical and mental challenges over the coming weeks, with participants encouraged to try and be active at least three times per week over a three-day period.

“I’m really excited to launch this challenge which I’m hoping will go some way to giving participants some form of routine whilst subconsciously pushing them to challenge themselves which is what PL Kicks is all about.

“We’ve had some great interactions so far from participants responding to the challenges we’ve uploaded to our social media platforms, but one thing we’ve found is that they are over very quickly, whereas with Try Active, it’s designed to provide more structure and increase focus and participation.

“This will be run as a competition, so participants will need to fill in their trackers and send them back to me through email – I’ll be putting together a medals table and there will be some prizes along the way – so get up off of your sofas and get involved”

New challenges will be emailed out to those who sign up using this link every Tuesday and Friday, along with a ‘Try Active Tracker’ so participants can keep a record of their scores/ attempts and try to beat their own scores during the course of the week.
