Sports Participation

Southend United Community Foundation recognises that Sports Participation can play a crucial role within a child's educational and social development.



Our Sports Participation department delivers high quality sports provision to a network of schools, groups and individuals throughout the academic year. This is achieved through an extensive range of in-school and after-school activities, each delivered by our highly skilled team of staff who are positive role models as well as Coaches.

If you’d like to be one in a million – contact us today.

The SUCF Coaches are positive role models for our students who have SEMH (Social, Emotional & Mental Health) difficulties. They are patient and supportive; it's great to see the students accepting and following instructions from different adults to their norm.

Premier League Primary Stars (PLPS)

The Premier League Primary Stars programme uses the appeal of the Premier League, National League Trust and Southend United to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

The programme has been developed and is managed by the Premier League Charitable Fund, a Premier League funded charity which aims to create positive and lasting sporting, health and education outcomes for children, young people and the wider community.

Available entirely free to every primary school in England and Wales, it inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.

Premier League values underpin everything on offer, encouraging children to:

- Be ambitious: Work hard and never give up on their goals.
- Be inspiring: Set a great example to others.
- Be connected: Work well with others and in a team.
- Be fair: Treat people equally and think of others.

Children attending our sessions also have access to complimentary match tickets, which often provide children with their first experience of live sport and hopefully will encourage children from an early age to remain fans and subsequently build upon the Club’s fanbase.

There are lots more opportunities and rewards available for schools throughout the year, from visits from the Premier League Trophy to book boxes and class sets of stickers and posters.

For more information, please contact Dan King on 01702 341351 or [email protected].

Soccer Schools

Our Soccer Schools are provided every school holiday, offering plenty of fun and interactive sessions to children aged 5-13.

The camps consist of plenty of fun, skills, drills and football-themed days, including competitions and opportunities to win prizes in addition to visits from Southend United players.

Sponsored Penalty Shoot-Outs

Our Sponsored Penalty Shoot-Outs help raise funds for primary schools and SUCET by giving the opportunity for every pupil in the school to score a goal.

Every pupil can participate and is handed a sponsorship form. They will then have the chance to take six penalties against Southend United players or staff.

The overall money raised is split between the primary schools and SUCET, using it to buy new equipment to take back into schools to deliver the best sessions possible.

The schools also utilise the funds raised by purchasing new sports equipment.
