This project was funded on 08 Nov 2022!

Just over a year ago, we had the vision of providing Free American Flag Football training sessions, Free memberships to BAFA (British American Football Association) and Free training kit to all children aged 7 to 14... We created a Spacehive Crowdfunder and managed to raise the funds to turn the vison into a reality... In the past year, with the help of that money raised, we have provided all of these things and more... We now run 3 x Free training sessions per week for 7 to 16 year olds. We have a home pitch with changing rooms. In our first ever tournament, we were invited to play against 5 of the best u14 teams in the South East... WE WON IT :) You can help us continue this amazing story for the children and young people that are already benefiting and for many many more.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide more training equipment
  • Renew BAFA memberships for existing players
  • Hire transport for tournaments
  • Join BAFA u14s league
  • Buy kit and memberships for new players

Why it's a great idea:

Thanet is one of the South Easts most deprived areas. It should not be down to children and young peoples financial situation as to whether they can partake and develop in a team sport. It will be exactly these people who will benefit in both physical and mental wellbeing.

Steps to get it done:

  • To become a full BAFA club by 2023/34 season
  • Provide better equipment
  • Recruit more players
  • recruit more volunteers
