Grassroots sits very much at the heart of The Trusts social objective in engaging young people no matter what gender, race or ability they represent. Grassroots football is open to all and works to enhance a young persons ability to socialise positively, exercise effectively, develop transferable skills such as communication, teamwork and sportsmanship. All qualities and lessons which in the long term develop healthy, employable, social and responsible citizens of the future.
The Projects We Do:
Bury FC Boys and Girls: The Trust has running as part of our delivery its very own grassroots football club. Within the club we offer Teams from U8’s through to open age teams for both boys, girls and we even have disability specific teams. We have over 40 teams for over 500 players with over 100 volunteers working to support the club.
Development Centres: These sessions are designed to support and develop participants who are just getting into football or who are wanted to improve their skills and offers an opportunity to attend a fun and dynamic football session. We believe these sessions are the key stepping stone that is sometimes missed between schools and clubs.
Football Camps: Our camps are held in partnership with playfootball.net in Bury during every holiday period for children of all abilities aged 4-13yrs. Throughout the day we will be delivery a variety of fun football skill session and games from our camp program designed by our Football development officer. These activities will cater for all levels of abilities through our tiered differentiation scale.
