Supporters can now sign up to take part in all-new Premier League Kicks sessions, which are being run by Bradford City Community Foundation - for those aged between 8 and 18.
The camps are set to take place at venues across the district such as BEAP Community Partnership - just a stone's throw from the Utilita Energy Stadium - Dixons Cottingly Academy and Bradford Academy.
Sessions will be held on three different days across the week and are completely FREE to partake in.
For the last 14 years, Premier League Kicks has been working in local communities to inspire thousands of young people.
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 them 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.
PL Kicks' stated aims are as follows:
- Increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities in football and a range of sports (8-18 years old)
- Enhance physical and mental wellbeing, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills
- Strengthen communities with a culture of volunteering, social action and positive role models – supporting education, training and employment pathways (focusing on 16-25 years old)
- Work in partnership with young people, the police and other stakeholders to support the younger generation with the societal challenges they face (e.g. youth violence) and to improve community safety
- Inspire young people to develop positive, supportive relationships with one another and the authorities
- Promote integration and champion equality, diversity and inclusion
