Activities for Youngsters

There's lots for youngsters to get involved in with the Foundation of Light.

The Foundation of Light runs a broad range of sessions for children and youngsters aged 3-19 years to get involved in on evening, weekends and during school holidays.

The Foundation’s coaching team offers a comprehensive range of sessions, courses and products suitable for youngsters in the North East. One of the most advanced coaching set ups of any Barclays Premier League Foundations, the department operates a player pathway that helps youngsters find a game at their level. This pathway extends to development centres and the Sunderland AFC Academy of Light for the most gifted and talented players.

The Foundation also runs PL Kicks and Mini-Kickers at sites across the region. Originally developed by the Football Foundation, Metropolitan Police and The Premier League, PL Kicks uses the power of football to engage with young people through a variety of activities including sports, music, arts and developmental workshops.

Past sessions have included projects ran with Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue, the RNLI and Northumbria Police as well as introducing a range of sports activities.
