Come and join us on our trial day at the end of the month

Following the success of our programme last yearStreet Soccerinaugural , the Gillingham Football Club Community Trust (GFCCT) are pleased to be launching another cohort this February 2017 to help young people experiencing homelessness in Kent.

The Gillingham FC Street Soccer course is a nationally acclaimed personal development programme for young people aged 16-24, male and female. The 12-week football-themed course is focused on enterprise and employability and is dedicated to helping selected young participants to find work, education or training.

If you are aged 16-24 and are committed to improving yourself, you can register for FREE to attend our Trial Day on FRIDAY 27TH JANUARY 2017.

The Trial Day will run from 12pm-4pm at the Star Meadow Sports Ground, Darland Avenue, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 2AA, and will consist of a mixture of mini football games and activities delivered by GFCCT coaches, and 1-1 interviews with our selection team.  

To find out more and to register your place, visit the Street Soccer Foundation website.  

Successful participants will then be invited to join the 12-week personal development programme, running every Wednesday, 10.30am – 2.30pm, starting 1 February 2017.  All selected individuals will be given official kit to wear during the course, along with a tailored Personal Development Plan and a free lunch each session. The course also includes opportunities to visit Priestfield Stadium and meet first team players, promising an unforgettable experience.
