                                                  What is street football ?

Street football and portable sports is an idea that has grown abroad, landed in Scotland and is now being asked for by youths in England. It is an ideal forum for the promotion of interpersonal skills. The use of sport as a tool for young males, females, disabled and other ethnic groups in neglected or deprived areas allows them to channel their energies away from anti-social behaviour into a safe and healthy environment, and address the issues of obesity to promote positive life styles in young people.

After just two trial events placed with our knowledge of the area it was over whelming to see the positive out comes shown within all of the community. Stronger community associations were formed, anti-social behaviour did lower in the areas and many youths felt that they had been included and connected to. This was shown by their persistence to know when it would take place again. This integration of marginalised people has proven that this project will unite our area.

Due to street football many adults have shown an interest in giving their voluntary help. Our constitution has been formed so that it can educate people in all aspects such as child protection, bullying and the vulnerable. It is hoped to train these volunteers so that they could then teach others. If funding can be sought one fully qualified member of staff could make a considerable difference too many locals.

Hopefully this project will arrive this year. i will keep you posted as it begins.
