Pro Touch Community

Pro Touch Community (PTC) is powered by Pro Touch Soccer Academy (PTSA) and was officially launched in October 2007 at the One KX Centre in Kings Cross, Camden. The project was the result of PTSA’s success and impact on the children and young people within the various boroughs in which PTSA was established, and its communities. PTSA felt that the many children and young people who didn’t reach or show their full potential for the Academy during the trials could still be empowered. Following community involvement, it was decided to reach out to more children and young people to provide a high quality standard of youth and sports services.

The Community programmes being delivered are wide-ranging, from fashion design and t-shirt projects, to free-style sports coaching in local estates. The programmes target both boys and young women from local disadvantaged, deprived communities, low income and overcrowded homes.

PTC recently delivered extended schools sports coaching for local primary schools, such as Dershingham Primary based in Newham as well as schools in Camden and Islington. Qualified and experienced skilled sports coaches are currently working on primary schools breakfast and after school club with pupils in years one to six.

Some of the Community programmes are funded short term through small and medium sized grants and donations by various charities and foundations, such as the Camden Youth Action Group Programme and Grow the Game – Football Foundation. Some of previous funding PTSA had received and played a huge part in the journey to PTSA successes were Camden, Enfield, Islington and Westminster Youth Opportunities and Capital Funds as well as Kick It Out One Game One Community, the v Project Young Volunteer Grants Scheme and many more.

The 2014/15 football season will see our development programme, drop in football coaching sessions engaging with both boys and girls aged between 6-11s years old. The sessions will be delivered in various London boroughs including Camden, Enfield, Islington and Westminster.

We are currently delivering midweek training sessions for all the targeted age groups for all our PTC “Centre of Excellence” (CoE) members.

Our boys under 6s to 18s will be participating in either the Camden and Regent’s Park Youth League on Saturdays or the Cheshunt Youth League on Sundays. These teams boast well over 250 children and young people participating week in week out, who are benefiting from a healthy and sporting lifestyle.

Development Centres:

We believe in providing opportunities across our targeted London Boroughs as not all children and young people wish to play within a team and development environment, therefore our Development Centres are an alternative to Development Team training sessions. We have established 3 New Development Centres across London, Islington (Monday & Tuesday), Westminster (Friday) and Enfield (Friday) all targeting primary school years 1-6. We often organise friendly in-house friendly matches against other local teams and centres as well as entering in tournaments as when and requests by the Centres Lead Coaches.
