Premier League Kicks

Young people throughout Preston are given access to free football sessions, thanks to Preston North End’s Premier League Kicks Programme.

The Premier League’s flagship initiative, which is funded nationally by the Premier League and Sport England, sees fully qualified coaches from Preston North End Community and Education Trust deliver sessions to deprived areas in Preston.

The sessions provide young people with the opportunity to take part in weekly football sessions, using football as a form of escapism from daily challenges in a safe and welcoming environment.

The initiative has a long history of using the power of football to help hard-to-reach youngsters in some of the most high-need areas in Preston, seeing the Trust work in conjunction with a variety of schemes that target specific areas where the project is needed most.

All sessions are inclusive of both genders who are in the specified age group within each session, and most importantly, all sessions are free to access!

Please note that our sessions are changing all of the time. If it's your first time attending a session, we suggest you call us on 01772 693309 to confirm that the session is still going ahead.
