A company set up to help the younger generation of today, with the help of parents and volunteers this company has gone from 2 kids in august 2016 to over 200 kids signed up to date. With two age groups 4-7 year olds and an 8-13 year old group we run 3 sessions a week during school term and half term programmes during half terms. With a homework club starting in June 2017 and increased session times, all money will go to staffing this great company. With volunteers for over 6 months committing their free time to giving back to the community I think its the least I could do is try and get funding to pay them. We haven't got uniform or anything. just equipment that I brought out of my own pocket. Our aim is to teach the younger generation that gang life and anti social behaviour isn't the way forward. With our unique way of teaching life skills through sports, highlighting the benefits of healthy living and building a better community at the same time. Its totally FREE no cost whatsoever

What we'll deliver:

  • pay for equipment
  • pay for publicity
  • pay for staffing

Why it's a great idea:

Its been running for over 8 months. its a unique way of teaching the younger generation skills such as responsibilities, communication skills, respect, manners, trust, teamwork, individual learning, empowerment, awareness at the same time of playing sports that they enjoy. with all the benefits of taking part in sports eg, build friendships, keep active, get fit. Being able to tackle parents issues that they have in the area, they can come and ask us to highlight them, set up different umbrella clubs to benefit the young participants eg homework club after the sports to encourage and better themselves academically.

Steps to get it done:

  • set up the sessions

I would like to say, the company will carry on with or without anyone's help. I'm determined to make a difference in my local area and there is no better feeling I promise then seeing young kids literary run home from school to take part. Seeing them progress, learn and grow in confidence.
