Loves Football

Initiatives

We believe that Football has the power to improve our community
GIRLS FOOTBALL

We are proud advocates of Girls’ Football, and our Girls’ Only groups represent the fastest growing part of our community. Indeed, girls participate in all our groups.

We are in discussions with The FA to become part of their ‘Wildcats’ scheme aimed at promoting Girls’ Football at the grassroots level

GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL
 

Loves Football maintain excellent links with local grassroots teams, and are one of the only local football groups who actively try to source teams for our players.

 

We are also in the early stages of forming our own club, and will be the only local football club to guarantee ‘game time’ for players.

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

We’re acutely aware of the impact overzealous parents, teammates and coaches can have on children.

Many of our children were ready to walk away from football prior to joining us. That’s why we don’t criticise, we encourage – and educate our players do the same.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Players of BAME origin are well-presented amongst our community, accounting for 38% of players.

We also maintain close links with the local Mosque football hub, through knowledge-sharing, football matches and player movement.

COMMUNITY IMPACT
 

We embrace the positive impact sport can have on communities.

 

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner has identified 19 Impact Areas ’where there is a disproportionately greater levels of economic, social and health inequalities and deprivation’. (www.westmidlands-pcc.gov.uk)

 

38% of our players live in these areas.

 

LOVES FOOTBALL, HATES PLASTIC

 

Loves Football recently started a campaign to eliminate single-use plastic bottles from all our sessions.

 

We hope to work with the FA to extend this to the wider grassroots football community.
