PLYMOUTH Argyle is pleased to announce a new partnership with Intense Boxing Gym, creating fun-filled sessions for local youths.

Through this growing partnership, Argyle community staff and Intense Boxing coaches will offer exciting sessions as part of the new, innovative ‘Premier League 4 Sports’ project.

Argyle Community Trust is set to launch the national ‘Premier League 4 Sports’ project across Plymouth this September.  PL4S sees Premier and Football League Clubs delivering a range of Olympic sports to 12-25 year olds across different sites around the city. PAFC will soon be delivering fun Boxing, Athletics, Hockey and Netball sessions at a site near you.

Each boxing session, led by ex-professional Danny Lawson, will create a unique opportunity to undertake the Olympic sport at first-hand, whilst having fun and meeting new people along the way. Danny and his experienced team, alongside Argyle community coaches, will create an inclusive environment focused around fitness, techniques and enjoyment.

The rationale behind each session is for young people who may not have given boxing a go previously, the confidence to learn from the pros and gain a positive experience in sport.  Using the power of boxing and Plymouth Argyle, each session will help participants to develop their confidence, discipline and fitness levels.

Inclusion Manager Dwain Morgan states “To work with such an established team of coaches is a privilege, here at the Trust; we cannot wait to get started. Boxing is a fantastic way to keep fit, as well as learn skills that can be used in everyday life. Danny and his team deliver action-packed sessions, which are enjoyable for all abilities. This is a great opportunity to access high-quality coaching, as well as stay sharp for no matter what sport you play”. 

Argyle ntense boxing sessions are for both girls and boys, creating a safe opportunity for people to come together from different communities. With a focus on fun and fitness, no previous experience is necessary. Sessions will run every Tuesday night at Intense Gym, Burrington Way Industrial Estate between 6-7pm. The sessions which start on Tuesday 8th October are for anybody between 12-25 years old and will cost £1 only per session.

For more information or to book a space on these new, exciting sessions, please contact Inclusion Manager Dwain Morgan on 01752 562561ext4 or dwain.morgan@pafc.co.uk

Argyle Community Trust launch new ‘Premier League 4 Sport’

ARGYLE Community Trust is set to launch the exciting ‘Premier League 4 Sport’ project across Plymouth this September.

PL4S sees Premier and Football League Clubs delivering a range of Olympic sports to young people across different sites around the city.

Using the pull of the Premier League, PL4S engages young people aged 12-19 in Olympic sports on schools sites and in community clubs. Argyle Community Trust will soon be delivering fun Boxing, Athletics, Hockey and Netball sessions for all abilities at a site near you.

Argyle will be working in partnership with established sports clubs from across the city, meaning that high-quality coaching and exit-routes are made available for all participants. PAFC have already secured partnerships with Intense Boxing and Plymouth Musketeers Running Club, accessing their qualified staff and facilities.

The innovative Premier League 4 Sport (PL4S) project started in September 2009 and has helped over 27,000 young people get involved in sport in their school and local community.

PL4S has three main objectives:

- Provide chances for young people to take part in sport outside school hours

- Increase the diversity of sport

- Improve the infrastructure and supporting links between schools and clubs

 

PL4S sees professional football clubs acting as a hub linked to community sports facilities, which in turn are linked to local secondary schools to create satellite sports centres. Each football club has a dedicated coordinator who works locally with the sports clubs and schools to maximise opportunities for young people.

PL4S targets those less likely to engage in sport, by delivering fun, inclusion-centred sessions across diverse communities. Each sport session, delivered by professional coaches, will cater for all abilities and interests. The sessions will create an opportunity to have fun, make new friends, as well as help towards living a healthy, active lifestyle. Premier League 4 Sport aims to get children from all backgrounds involved in non-traditional, club-based sport. The initiative will help the Government's ambition to offer young people five hours of sport a week, and address the drop-off in sports participation after secondary school.

PL4S manager Dwain Morgan states “To be able to offer young people across Plymouth a chance to try new sports, outside of football, is an exciting time for the Trust. These sessions will help us get the city healthier, as well as create better links between young people and local clubs. Each session will be focused around having fun, as well as learning skills that can be transferred in to a wide range of sports.”

10 different satellite sessions will be made available every week starting in October, covering a wide range of Plymouth communities. If you are bored in the evenings and would like the opportunity to try new sports, as well as represent Argyle at national events, PL4S is for you. To further information or to book a space in a session, please contact PL4S manager, Dwain Morgan on 01752 562561ext4 or dwain.morgan@pafc.co.uk

Argyle Community Trust achieve license to run Disability Player Development Centre

Sep 12, 2013   //   by Mark Lovell   //   Articles  //  Comments Off

ARGYLE Community Trust has successfully landed the license from the Football Association to run the Disability Player Development Centre (PDC) for Devon.

The PDC is a unique opportunity for players that have been identified by our coaches from around the county to attend the first step of the ladder for progressing to national football within their specified disability.

The centre is there to inspire players and to help apply in-depth coaching, meeting the needs of the players to develop and progress into regional and national talent camps. The opportunity is fantastic for young people who are currently participating in disability football to have the opportunity to see progression routes similarly to able international players.

Devon has seen some great success stories within disability football over the past five years with a very strong foundation of community clubs hosting disability teams. The introduction of the development centre will help young players have more coaching contact time to harness their development with the aim of progressing into national football.

Head of Community Mark Lovell said: “It is great that we have been fortunate enough to have a PD Centre in Devon which will provide progression routes into the national set-up and also mainstream football throughout the county.

"Our aim is to work with all local community clubs to provide these progression links it is also important to highlight that these centre do not affect players continue to play for their local teams; this is something we actively encourage.“
