AFC St Paul's
AFC St Paul's is our team name, launched through Hope Church Football Academy, Join the Team
our weekly football academy run in partnership with KICK GB, for both boys and girls, for school years 3-13.
Sunday (term-time only) 2-3.30pm.
Our goal as an academy is to provide equal opportunities for young people of all abilities, nationalities and background to experience football in a fun and safe environment; to promote social, emotional and physical wellbeing; for young
people to have opportunities to lead and shape the direction of the academy;
and for young people to understand the role that they as individuals have and football has to contribute to community development.
We are Christ-Centred and all of our sessions and tournaments reflect our faith in Jesus. Each week, we will have a value talk where we share what we believe and create space for open discussion.
A team of FA qualified football coaches, FA Playmakers and volunteers
deliver our training sessions for young people in the Hounslow West
community each week, as well as organise matches, tournaments and
value talks. Young people are also encouraged to complete a First Aid Course, join our players development forum and volunteer to coach the younger players, working alongside the youth team to deliver training sessions.
We also have opportunities for Duke of Edinburgh placements.
We have developed partnerships with professional football clubs to promote community partnership and to give players role models to aspire to.
Players of all ability and experience are welcome to learn the game and enjoy playing a match each session. Player of the Week awards will be up for grabs.
