PL Kicks is Back!

This Tuesday 28th July, Shrewsbury Town in the Community held their first face to face PL Kicks session since lockdown. These free sessions funded through the Premier Leagues PL Kicks programme, aim to engage young people aged 8-18 in a variety of activities and sports, with the aim of reducing anti-social behaviour and providing opportunities in areas where they’re needed most. 

PL Kicks was just one of Shrewsbury Town in the Community’s programmes that was affected by COVID-19 this year. But through lockdown, Shrewsbury Town in the Community went digital, hosting coffee morning, fitness classes, educational activities and so much more for their participants. 

With guidelines and social distancing rules easing, this week they were able to return to face to face delivery, and get back to doing what they do best. 

Nigel Wellings, Inclusive Sport Co-Ordinator at Shrewsbury Town in the Community said;

 ‘We are really excited to get back to face to face delivery of our PL Kicks sessions, although it’s been great seeing so many participants engage with the online challenges we have set, nothing beats getting together for a kick about! We had lots of exciting things planned before Covid-19, such as tournaments and workshops, so we look forward to getting these going again in the near future’

The sessions will now be ran from the Mercedes-Benz Football Hub at Montgomery Waters Meadow every Tuesday evening with two sessions available from 5:00pm – 5:50pm and 6:00pm-6:50pm. These sessions will be open to the usual age range of 8-17 depending on bookings and will of course still be completely free.
