Premier League 4 Sport (PL4Sport) started in September 2009 and uses the power of professional clubs to inspire young people to get involved in 12 different sports.

Run in partnership with Sport England, PL4Sport provides sessions for young people to try sports for the first time in the heart of their community. Through strong links with National Governing Bodies participants are given the opportunity to progress in to local clubs as well as talent pathways whilst many young people gain qualifications in the sport and volunteer on the programme.

This creates inspiring role models who are able to connect with the community.

“SWFC have given Ecclesfield School a wide range of opportunities for a large proportion of pupils who can sometimes find it difficult to access PE and Sport. The programme has been a great addition to our own curricular and extra curricular timetable and complements this really well. We are grateful for all time and effort given to our students and feel they really benefit in some of the other sports we cannot facilitate through our own provision.” – R Podlaski, Ecclesfield Secondary School

PL4Sport has three main objectives:

– Provide chances for young people to take part in sport outside school hours
– Increase the diversity of sports participation
– Improve the infrastructure and supporting links between schools and clubs

SWFCCP Stats:  In the 2016/17 season alone over 500 young people have engaged in the programme. The scheme has also enabled young people to try new sports and pathways into local clubs.
