THANK YOU DECATHLON!

International sports retailer has been supporting holiday courses for 2 years

12 December 2023

A huge thank you to Decathlon for sponsoring our Soccer Schools Programme for the past 2 years!

Since the Summer of 2021, international sports goods retailer Decathlon have supported hundreds of children to be more active during the school holidays.

During the 2-year partnership which ended this summer, Decathlon helped support 16 weeks of our Soccer Schools programme at Goals in Northampton. These courses provide a fun, safe environment for children aged 5-13 of mixed ability to learn new games, practice skills and socialise. The courses may include visits from members of the first team squad and the chance to impress our coaches.

Decathlon is the world’s largest sport’s retailer, with over 1,697 stores in 60 countries. The company manages the research, design, production, logistics and distribution of its products in-house; partners with global suppliers; and markets their own brands directly to consumers in branded big box stores of which one of their key UK warehouses is based in Northampton.

Akshay Mistry, Health & Wellbeing Officer at the Northampton Town FC Community Trust said: “The holiday courses play a key role in the physical, technical, social, and psychological development of the children. Each year we engage with over 400 children to help improve their fundamental skills. This includes skills such as agility, balance, coordination, as well as their football skills.

"We aim to also increase confidence, self-esteem and increase the number of positive relationships amongst their peers. Our holiday courses are an inclusive environment where no matter your ability or experience in playing football, we want all children to have fun, learn something new and leave with a smile on their face and we would like to thank Decathlon for their support."

Our Holiday Courses will return in February 2024.
