Corsham youngsters kick racism out of football this half term at Springfield Community Campus

Young people from the Corsham community area enjoyed a fun and active day of sport this Wednesday 29 October when Springfield Community Campus hosted its first Kick It Out event thanks to support from the Corsham Area Board.

Kick It Out is football’s equality and inclusion organisation. Working through the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change in sport.

The young participants underwent a series of skills challenges throughout the day including the crossbar challenge, beat the keeper shooting target, chip bin challenge and keep up challenge, before concluding the day with a series of matches and tournaments.

The event was held on the all-weather pitch which forms part of the campuses offer to the community and is already being put to good use by The Corsham School and local groups and clubs such as Corsham Hockey Club who now use the pitch for training and matches.

Corsham Area Board is committed to the provision of an ongoing programme of activities for young people and is keen to hear from local young people themselves to learn more about what activities and facilities they would like to see available to them in their community.

An upcoming event at the campus from 7pm on 4 November will see the Area Board begin to shape its new Local Youth Network. All local young people aged 13-19 are invited to attend and share their views, along with local groups, organisations and stakeholders that are keen to be involved in helping to shape positive activities for young people in the Corsham community area.

If you are interested to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
