Premier League Kicks

At Lincoln City Foundation, our PL Kicks sessions give young people a safe space to socialise with their friends, meet new people, while participating in fun and engaging activities. Using both inside and outside spaces our youth club offers sports activities as well as the opportunity to relax inside and play a few games of FIFA or Just Dance.

Port Vale Twinning Project

Our twinning project with Port Vale is an in-school programme that supports young people in Lincolnshire and Boston and will be an opportunity to chat about goals and what their aims are for the future. We want to be there to inspire the next generation and show them the prospects that they have during and after being in education.

HMP Lincoln Twinning Project

Our project with HMP Lincoln is to support inmates in working towards a leadership qualification whilst being immersed within football. They will have the opportunity to learn about leadership skills and qualities which will support their return into life out of prison, our aspiration is to ensure they have the opportunity to develop those skills with us once they leave and look towards a career in coaching or sport.

Our programmes are constantly growing with more sessions and opportunities and we would love to hear from you that you would like to see in Lincolnshire to support our young people and provide them with a safe space to have fun, develop and learn new skills!
