Cardiff City Premier League Kicks is a project that offers free sports coaching to young people of ages 14-19, to both boys and girls. 1st of September has seen us enter year two of the project.
Free football sessions take place every in Aberdare at Michael Sobell Sports Centre every Friday evening from 5pm, with coaching sessions delivered by Cardiff City Community Foundation coaches.
The weekly sessions consist of football skills, technical activities such as shooting, passing and dribbling, along with plenty of opportunities for the young people to take part in small-sided games. The second hour of the session often sees the young people in teams of 6 taking part in fixtures that the coaches record and winner on the night is decided. Prizes can be won by the participants for regular attendance and good behaviour; prizes can include match tickets to watch the Cardiff City first team in the Sky Bet Championship, and food vouchers for local restaurants .
The sessions are also attended by Game On Wales, assisting to contribute towards the successful delivery of the project. Year one of the project in Aberdare saw over 100 young people of ages 14-19 attend the venue.
Cardiff City FC Community & Education Foundation started Premier League Kicks in October 2013 after receiving funding from the Premier League Charitable Fund; the aim of the project is to combat anti-social behaviour and in year one of the project engaged with over 600 young people. We are also looking for volunteers to get involved and assist with delivery of the session.
We are looking to recruit volunteers to assist in the successful running of the session at Michael Sobell Sports Centre. If interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
