Foundation relaunches Premier League Kicks

21 October 2019

Club Doncaster Foundation will relaunch their Premier League Kicks programme this month when Doncaster Rovers face Burton Albion at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday November 2.

Taking place at the SkyBet League One fixture, the event will see current Premier League Kicks participants take part in a unique range of activities as part of the Rovers matchday experience before the game.

Premier League Kicks is one of the Premier League’s flagship community programmes. It started in 2006 and has a long history of using the power of football and the value of sports participation to help young people in some of the most high-need areas in the country.

By engaging young people in constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports, coaching, music, educational and personal development sessions, communities up and down the country have been transformed with impressive football and sports participation rates and the authorities reporting significant reductions in anti-social behaviour in the areas in which it is delivered.

It has been running in the town of Doncaster since 2012, engaging young people in free weekly constructive activities, including a wide variety of sports, coaching, dance, encouraging educational and personal development and offering the opportunity to compete with other clubs up and down the country.


Areas such as Thorne, Balby, Dearne, Rossington and Adwick has seen increased levels of participation across Kicks sessions. Alongside their weekly Kicks sessions, participants are also given the opportunity to represent Doncaster Rovers at Kicks tournaments across the country.

The aim of the Premier League Kicks sessions is to:

  • Increase playing, coaching and officiating opportunities in football and a range of sports (8-18yrs).
  • Enhance physical and mental wellbeing, including self-esteem, ambition and social skills.
  • Strengthen communities with a culture of volunteering, social action and positive role models – supporting education, training and employment pathways (focusing on 16-25yrs).
  • Work in partnership with young people, the police and other stakeholders to support the younger generation with the societal challenges they face (eg youth violence) and to improve community safety.
  • Inspire young people to develop positive, supportive relationships with one another and the authorities.
  • Promote integration and champion equality, diversity and inclusion.
