Macclesfield Town Community Sports Trust are happy to announce that in partnership with the Premier League and EFL Trust we will be running our own Kicks initiative, initially in Macclesfield and Handforth but looking to expand in the future.
Premier League Kicks is one of the Premier League’s flagship community programmes.
PL Kicks started in 2006 and has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help youngsters in some of the most high-need areas.
By engaging young people in constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports, coaching, music and educational and personal development sessions, communities up and down the country have been transformed with impressive football and sports participation rates and the authorities reporting significant reductions in anti-social behaviour in the areas in which it is delivered.
Kicks is focusing on increasing participation in sports whether that’s playing, coaching or officiating. Enhancing physical and mental wellbeing, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills. Inspire young people to develop positive, supportive relationships with one another and the authorities and finally promote integration and champion equality, diversity and inclusion.
