Albion in the Community (AITC) is now has the second-largest Premier League Kicks project in the UK – with only Swansea City offering more young people the chance to play weekly free football.
Our Kicks sessions take place in some of the most-deprived parts of the south coast and combine free football with workshops and lifestyle advice in subjects like domestic violence, anti-homophobia, anti-racism, substance misuse and road safety. Volunteering opportunities are also available for participants. These are accompanied by numerous qualification and mentoring opportunities.
We currently run more than 40 Kicks clubs during weekday evenings at venues throughout Sussex and free tournaments during the school holidays, with more than 2,500 young people taking part in sessions over the last 12 months.
A mini kicks programme is due to start this year, which is open to anyone aged between seven-11 years of age.
Premier League Kicks is open to anyone aged between seven and 18 and funding comes from the Premier League Charitable Fund, Sport England, Sussex Police and a wide range of housing associations and local authorities.
