Delivered at nine venues across Southampton and Eastleigh on various weekday evenings, Saints Kicks offers positive sporting and development opportunities to young people aged 10-19. By engaging young people in both football and multi-sport activities, the project aims to create a sporting habit for life, as well as help break down barriers between young people and authority figures, including the Police. With the support of community partners, Saints Kicks also offers a variety of non-sport activities, including girls-only sessions.
Putting on these local sessions for young people is really appreciated by the Police and local communities.” Natasha Prior – Police Officer – Hampshire Constabulary
The pupils are really enjoying these sessions and we can see social skills and behaviour improving for all pupils, in different ways.” Jodie Ryves – Head of Referral Unit – Woodlands Community College
