Pompey in the Community deliver a number of FREE sessions across the city for 8-18 year olds, as part of the Premier League Kicks programme.
The Movement Initiative and Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy are two organisations that Pompey in the Community work with to provide Dance and Boxing sessions for children across Portsmouth, as part of the Premier League Kicks programme.
Premier League 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.
The scheme has also enabled thousands of youngsters to find routes into education, training and employment with volunteering being a key component.
One of the highlights of the programme is the annual Premier League Kicks Cup which brings together all of the clubs for a showpiece football competition involving hundreds of young people.
