PL Kicks Returns this Thursday

Mansfield Town Football in the Community are delighted to announce the return of the FREE Premier League Kicks sessions, which will now run exclusively at the One Call Stadium on Thursday evenings.

The national Premier League back project PL Kicks started in 2006 and 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 them in constructive activities, 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.

Mansfield Town Football in the Community joined the PL Kicks project last year, running sessions across the community and making a huge impact on participants, and within the Community – targeting areas which have gained a poor reputation for being rife with anti-social behaviour issues.

During lockdown, Football in the Community continued to deliver PL Kicks virtually, setting participants weekly challenges and even offering virtual activity sessions.

The new sessions will run during term-time only at the One Call Stadium on the stadiums 3G pitch, with those in School Years 6, 7 & 8 able to attend 5-6pm, and those in school years 9, 10 and 11, welcome to attend 6-7pm.

Amy Page, PL Kicks Coordinator said “Our first year of PL Kicks may have been cut short because of the pandemic, however I was really pleased with the difference and impact we were able to make, something which showed throughout lockdown with our virtual delivery.

“Because of covid-safe measures, we’ve made the decision to move all age groups to one evening and one central accessible venue – the sessions themselves will continue to be fun and engaging as we look to continue to make a difference to children across the community

“In order to help us manage our bubble and deliver the activity in a covid-safe way, we’re asking that ALL participants pre-book online prior to the session and come directly to the 3G Pitch, where the session lead will sign you in”
