Wigan Athletic Community Trust’s team of qualified football and sports coaches provide top quality training sessions for hundreds of young people in and out of school each week.

From helping primary schools to deliver their PE lessons to running after school club's and disability football sessions, the Community Trust provides football and sports opportunities for young people whatever their abilities.

The Community Trust work with Wigan Youth Zone to provide evening football coaching every week, run weekly 5-a-side leagues, organise weekend football festivals and six weeks of school holiday football camps per year, as well as helping young people and volunteers gain sports qualifications.

Specific girls football sessions run every week, providing opportunities for female players to be referred to Wigan Athletic Ladies Football Club.
