PL KICKS Our PL Kicks sessions take place in some of the most-deprived parts of Luton and Bedford and combine free football with workshops and lifestyle advice. The Premier League’s KICKS scheme seeks to engage young people aged from 11 to 13 years and from 14 to 24 years of age from areas of high need in football, sport and personal development by using football as a hook to engage, target and divert young people away from crime and ant-social behaviour. Volunteering opportunities are also available for participants accompanied by numerous qualification and mentoring opportunities.We currently run 3 KICKS centres in Luton and 1 in Bedford during weekday evenings with free tournaments during the school holidays, with more than 200 young people taking part in sessions each week. Premier League Kicks is open to anyone aged from 11 years upwards and funding comes from the Premier League Charitable Fund.
