Girls and boys, clubs and schools — we partner sports teams for players aged between 15 and 16.
The club was founded in 1986 as part of a wider initiative engaging unemployed young people in Hackney. As well as success on the pitch, the club strives to be at the heart of the community. It has launched a number of grassroots projects, including a mental health programme called Sporting Hackney Mind. Sporting Hackney became the pilot club for Behind Every Kick in 2016, and we are very proud of our continued partnership.
A pioneering new school in Stratford, School21’s inclusive approach to education aims to prepare young people for their lives beyond the classroom. The school places equal focus on academic success, wellbeing and creativity. Behind Every Kick has been working with their girls netball team.
With a history dating back to 1887, the club fields mens, womens, youth and junior teams. Vinnie Jones and Stuart Pearce are former players of the club. Wealdstone FC have built an excellent reputation for their community programmes and Behind Every Kick is working with their young players.
Join as a team and empower young people to reach their full potential.
