PL Kicks Swerve

Bristol City Robins Foundation's Swerve project offers free football sessions for males and females aged 8-18. 

Working in partnership with the Premier League Kicks initiative and Avon and Somerset Police as well as local youth organisations, the Foundation’s Swerve programme is operated as an interactive engagement tool, working with youngsters from an array of backgrounds on a weekly basis. 

The programme looks to use football as the vehicle to build meaningful relationships of trust between our coaches and young people from traditionally hard-to-reach areas. 

Through the project's partnership with Avon and Somerset Police, Our PL Kick's Swerve Project breaks down barriers between young people and figures of authority and tackles anti-social behaviour and many of the connected issues. 

There is no need to sign up simply turn up to any of our free sessions and get involved!

All sessions will follow FA and governmental guidelines regarding Covid-19 safety, any participants who attend should be making sure they're testing regularly, if isolating please do not attend the sessions. For further information about this please contact Jon Pinches

Sessions run mostly term-time only as pretty much all the young people come to our HAF provision in Knowle, Hartcliffe, Hengrove and Central Bristol as well as most facilities not allowing access over them as most are situated in school facilities.

There are also other kicks sessions but they are straight afterschool provisions for the young people in those schools which we don't advertise to the public.
