Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Kicks project uses football to break down barriers between young people and the police. The free sessions for 12 – 19 year olds are proven to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and increase interest in sports, while creating life changing opportunities leading young people to find employment and education.
Premier League Kicks is the Premier League’s flagship community initiative under their Creating Chances programme. Piloted by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation in 2006, the programme has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help young people at risk of becoming not in education, employment or training (NEET) in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the community turn their lives around.
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation engages young people in constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports sessions that in turn signpost individuals on to positive employment, educational and personal development pathways.
The programme "builds safer, stronger, more respectful communities through the development of young peoples' potential", getting to youngsters who had previously proven difficult to reach and guiding them towards a range of healthy and constructive activities.
Over 500 young people a week take part in Tottenham Hotspur Foundation Kicks sessions in Haringey, Enfield and Waltham Forest. Currently the Foundation runs six free Kicks sessions in Haringey, four in Enfield and two in Waltham Forest. Sessions run from Monday – Friday after school and are suitable for young people aged 12 – 19.
If you want to take part in KICKS, there’s no need to register beforehand. Just turn up, get involved and have fun!
