Community Sport

Working in partnership with local authorities and youth zones, AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been able to develop and tailor a scheme of work that meets the needs of the communities and the demands of the local areas.

Our Community Sport

Throughout our community specific sport we operate two main strands of delivery:

Outreach:

Targeted around local parks and multi-use games facilities, working with the local authorities our coaches engage with the local children who come down to participate in sporting activities ranging from traditional sports including Football, Basketball and Dodgeball to Rounders, Tri-Golf and Athletics.

Each session last for a minimum of 2 hours and we can be found across the Fylde area.

During half term we promote and distribute leaflets and flyers across all social media platforms so keep your eyes out as we may be at a park near you.

Youth Clubs-

After starting a pilot youth club 4 years ago at Hope Street Park we are very proud to say this club is still running each week at maximum capacity.

 

Offering targeted youth engagement and interventions each qualified youth worker not only engages with the children but promotes social cohesion and develops a strong ethos of ownership within their own community.

Since Hope Street Youth Base opened in 2015 the Foundation now operates across 4 youth clubs a week working in partnership with local community groups.

  • Oak Tree Court - Preesall Road, Larches
  • Tanterton Village Centre - Tanterton, Kidsgrove,
  • Hope Street Park - Hope Street Park Community Pavilion, St Annes
  • Elswick - Elswick Village Hall Roseacre Rd, Elswick,

Our extended services youth team staff work with each community group to build a programme for the young people that work specifically for that community.

No two areas are the same and through the relationships built with the communities we can offer intervention on a personal level.
