Kickz scheme gets thumbs up

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn got her running shoes on for a visit to Meersbrook Bank Primary School to take part in ‘Kickz for kids’. This programme is currently operating in several primary schools in the area, and is aimed at getting children playing sport in order to teach them their all important ‘ABC’s’ - Agility, Balance and Co-ordination.


Meg met with Sue Beeley, Head of Community at Sheffield United Football Club, who explained how the Kickz programme is not just for small children. They run a number of youth groups for local teens who have not only played in national tournaments, including at the Manchester United stadium, but win a number of good sportsmanship awards. With both a boys and girls team, both performing to a high standard, there is a team for everyone. No-one is turned away and even those who don’t want to participate in the football can have a refereeing role.  


Beginning in 2007 with limited resources and few volunteers the Kickz team now consists of 20 volunteers and has branched out into other activities, including a recently formed street dance troupe.


Meg said:


“The Kickz programme is great. It helps to give children and young adults self esteem and the opportunity to be involved in a fantastic project and to feel part of a team.”
