“I became a football coach to give back the knowledge and skills I learnt at their age. I want to teach kids new things and see them improve, but I want them to enjoy improving and learning these new things in the process. I started in hope that the knowledge I pass on will benefit all the kids in the game that we all love Coach David Eayres


BENEFITS


Community

Health

Our kids play at specific times of the day to help combat social disobedience. After school, saturdays and half term holiday football programme’s offer children the opportunity to get off the streets, and instead play football in an organised, safe location. This in turn reduces youth crime rate and also creates a safer environment for the wider community

It is proven at the development of excercise and sport sciences at the university of Copenhagen that small sided football is better than going to the gym or any other sport. This is because more key muscles are being used at the same time. Also 90% of your heart is being used during the exercise, which significantly increases blood pressure. This is very good for children at a young age.

Social The children are in constant interaction with others of a similar age group to them. This allows them to create friends and interact in a fun and friendly environment with new people. This helps to develop key communication and social skills which are essential later on in the child’s life.


Case Study “I like coming to Powerleague because I really enjoy football. The coaches are wicked, and I have made loads of new friends� Reece Auger,11


Reece is a regular at our coaching camps, and the improvements he has made over the past 6 months are excellent. Reece was recommended to one of our affiliated teams, Chigwell Boys, and has since gone on to be a regular in the side, and scoring 10 goals this season. Not bad for a defender! Powerleague will continue to help cheeky chappy Reece to improve his skills and knowledge of the game.

“PERSONALLY, I NEED TO PLAY EVERY WEEK, I LOVE IT” Hayden Young AFC Bramble


“Powerleague is a great place to have a kick about with a few mates or even participate in league matches on friday’s or weekends. Either one is by far the best way to get your fitness up to the maximum level. Tight space, 5 a side, definatly ensures you are walking off the pitch dripping in sweat. I can say it will 100% help my cardio, stamina and general excercise. I think it’s a hell of a lot more physical than 11 a side, but hey, its much more fun. My mates and I first started Powerleague for a laugh, but with strict, Qualified referees and competitive teams, we soon found ourselves battling for 1st in the 4th division. We are now top of the 1st division! I personally need to play every week, I love it”


LEAGUE FORMAT


League breakdown Our leagues are divided into age groups based on school year groups. Our leagues tend to cater for secondary schools and colleges (ages 12-18, this may vary at each centre). Each division is broken down into 6, 8 or 10 teams depending on how many teams are in each age group.

League Setup

Game Time

Season

Each team which enters our league will first play a grading game to help us decide which division is most appropriate for your teams ability. This will increase enjoyment, as you will be competing against teams of a similar standard.

Each centre does vary on which day the league is played, but majority of our centres youth leagues are friday nights. The games are often played between 5pm and 9pm, with each game lasting between 40-50 minutes.

Each of our seasons vary depending on how many teams are in the league, but the season ranges between 10-18 weeks. Our leagues also run all year long, so as soon as a season finishes, the new season begins the following week.

Promotion/ Relegation Depending on number of teams in the division, standard promotion and relegation formats apply. The top 2 are promoted, and the bottom 2 are relegated in each league.

Prizes

We at Powerleague offer a numberof prizes to teams and individual players depending of their season performances. The top 2 teams will receive trophies, with the champions receiving the league trophy. Thereare also prizes for player of the season and top goalscorer.

BENEFITS


Community We know how much the youth of today are stereotyped as being ‘hooligans’, so we at Lucozade Powerleague offer an alternative for young adults. Our leagues and tournaments are at times of the day where young adults could be out on the streets causing trouble to the community. So we offer them the chance to come to one of our centers and play some competitive football. We actively discourage social disobedience, and we feel that with our product we will reduce the amount of youths on the streets, and increase the number of people playing football at grassroots level.

Health We actively encourage young adults to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Well here at Lucozade powerleague we can gurantee that youwill not only become alot healthier in playing on our pitches, but you will enjoy doing so. We know that you will be coming back for more!
