Connecting people, ideas, and support from the crowd to make Leicester an even better place!
The team is in the Leicester & District Football League and was founded in 2008 to tackle anti-social behaviour and prevent crime within our local community. Our team motto is #TogetherWeAreStronger! Throughout the years many youngsters have come through the team, and this has given our volunteers the opportunity to work with and develop these troubled youth not only on the pitch but also off it. We take great pride in our work when we witness ex-players and some current players finding their own way in society and keep growing as responsible adults.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Although attempted, it has not been planed and carried out as we are. I speak from experience as I have been in the position that the lads are in now. 1 – the long term is to build a Club not just a team. 2 – Working with the players off the pitch 3 – keep creating Positive distractions for the lads.
Steps to get it done:
£5700 would be sufficient for us to set us up for the coming season and this would be spent on: Home and away Kits £750 Team Tracksuits £750 Training Kit £300 Training equipment £350 First Aid Kit/£50 Team events £3500 (We will focus on team building, eating out as a team, other activities such as bowling, go karting, rock climbing, canoeing etc. also things like inviting motivational speakers and career advisers to speak to the lads so they can benefit from it. (other ideas off the pitch are being worked on)
