AFC Fylde Community Foundation is set to launch a ground-breaking disability programme.
The pan-ability football sessions will enable players with a wide range of different impairments to come together to play in the same team.
The innovative project will be led by Bailey Pack, a recent graduate from the Foundation’s BTEC Scholarship course, who is himself visually impaired.
Bailey will help to host weekly training sessions while at the same time working to establish league fixtures for the programme participants to compete in.
Each player will receive a programme tracksuit and kit as well as the opportunity to receive FA licensed coaching, ensuring all participants get the most out of their experience.
The Foundation’s new pan-ability programme is all set to launch at the Lightning Club in Wesham on Friday 19th July and will take place every Friday throughout summer between 6pm and 7pm.
Pre-booking for the programme is essential as demand is expected to be high. To confirm your place or for more information please contact the Director of AFC Fylde Community Foundation Tom Hutton on 07739 79610.
Tom is proud the organisation is able to provide such a unique programme to meet the needs of the local community.
He said: “We have been very much aware of a noticeable gap in our community for a pan-ability football programme.
“Our aim as an organisation is to be able to provide opportunities for everyone in our community, irrespective of their ability. It has taken a great deal of hard work and development, but we are delighted to now be able to add this all-inclusive football programme to our line-up. We’re confident it is going to be a huge success.”
