The Premier League Kicks programmes continues to expand now offering free football sessions in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Brockenhurst and Verwood. The popular AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust project offers free football and additional opportunities to over 1000 young people locally a year. The project encourages young people to get involved in playing sports in the evenings and at weekends, which sees them benefit from a healthier lifestyle, improved well-being and most importantly offers them a safe environment to enjoy themselves and have fun with friends.
The Premier League Kicks project offers sessions to mixed groups, as well as girls' only evenings, and all Kicks sessions are free of charge. Sessions for boys and girls aged 8-13 years old are coached sessions, whereas sessions for those aged 14+ are tournament style sessions.
