We provide free open-access football sessions in partnership with Aston Villa Football Club to develop young players’ skills.

Through our street based service, we identified that there were no targeted activities available for ages 14+ on a Friday afternoon in the local area. Taking part in activities to form healthy minds and bodies are an important part of growing up and we believe that every child should have this opportunity, which is why we’re thrilled to deliver this programme.

Our weekly sessions involve a combination of coaching and taking part in matches and provide the experience of playing on a professional pitch.
Based at our own Castle Vale Stadium, the programme is delivered:

  • Under 14’s every Monday from 5pm to 6pm
  • Over 14’s every Friday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm

This project is not only a great way for young people to enhance their football skills, but to also take part in group activities and make new friends – however, where there is a desire to transition into more structured football this does provide exciting prospects as two members have already been signed by Aston Villa Academy.

How can I access this service? 
To take part in these free sessions, simply pop down to Castle Vale Stadium to join in with the training session. Alternatively, you can contact us to discuss find out more information.
