Description

We are a sports coaching company located in Suffolk, which deliver numerous sport sessions starting from our Tiny Toddler Football, to Multi Sports Holiday Camps, to Girls Wildcat Football through to our U13 Sunday Football team.

We currently coach over 200 children in football from the local communities, increasing to over 1000 when our school PE sessions and Holiday Camps are included. This means our equipment is used every day of the week, multiple times, and is becoming old, worn and unworkable to use.

As we are a Community Interest Company we strive to ensure the costs for our services are kept at a reasonable level to remain accessible for everyone. Therefore, our prices remain the most affordable in the area for Football coaching and School Holiday Camps.

We are now looking to purchase new equipment to allow us to offer a variety of new activities to promote inclusion and accessibility for all.

This would include providing alternative activities such as Archery, Dodgeball, Ultimate Frisbee, Futsal, Handball and Tchoukball in many of our camps.

Our Holiday Camps already bring children outside, off their tablets/consoles and encourages participation in sports. However, by providing this equipment we would engage with new participants that may not be interested in the usual sports. We would hope to not only bring a positive change to their physical health by increasing activity levels but also an improvement to their social engagement.

We just need help in purchasing this equipment to enable us to continue the valuable services we provide to our local community.
