WIGAN ATHLETIC COMMUNITY TRUST RE-LAUNCH PREMIER LEAGUE KICKS PROGRAMME!

30 October 2018

Kicks uses the power of football and sport to inspire young people in some of the most high-need areas of the UK.

  • Free weekly football, dance and fitness for 11-19 year olds! 
  • Sessions held at various venues across Wigan and surrounding areas.
  • Represent Latics at tournaments and complete exciting qualifications.

Kicks – a football scheme that targets young people across Wigan – has been re-launched by the Community Trust… and it’s bigger and better than ever!

With 10 sessions taking place at various locations across Wigan and surrounding areas every week, youngsters aged 11-19 will be able to access free football in their communities.

Supported nationally by the Premier League and locally by Wigan Council, Kicks is a programme which uses the power of football and sport to inspire young people in some of the most high-need areas of the UK.

Not only will participants be able to get involved in football sessions with Latics, they’ll also have the chance to represent the club in national tournaments and play against other Kicks teams from across the country, while also having the opportunity to volunteer and complete qualifications.
