Dave saunders football academy
Redcar & Cleveland
We cater for children aged 2 to 5 years and encourage them to take part in games make friends we currently have 60 children at our academy and its growing weekly our aim is to bring children out of a society which is high in unemployment we don’t charge for the academy as we are not for profit club.
We work with the kids on fun games physical activity and most importantly friendship. The academy has been running for 3 years now and we are desperate for items which will increase our numbers we have a great group of youngsters which the academy is a safe environment for. We look after the children and through projects I run like boots for community – I supply boots to the children which allows them to play in a safe environment and use a facility which is safe.
I have been involved in grass roots football for 44 years this season and this group of kids are fantastic. I also run u8s and u11s Normanby which filters this team as the kids get older they go through to the main teams but like anything they have to start somewhere. The kids absolutely love it and Sunday afternoons are fantastic seeing so many kids enjoying themselves we love teaching them the kids love our activities so everyone wins. We cater for disabilities as a group giving a wider range of children.
