Boreham Wood Football Club are delighted to announce, that we will once again run a full Community programme next season and it will begin in September of this year.
Our community initiatives over the next 12 months, will again include going into local Primary Schools who request assistance to coach children during curriculum time. This year however our Community Department will look to diversify our provision beyond just Football to meet all Key Skills Level 1 and 2 learning objectives. This will include a comprehensive profile on all students we coach during curriculum time PE sessions. In turn this will help free up teacher time in and out of the Classroom as part of an ongoing club initiative.
We also plan to run our after school clubs in local Schools and hope to enlarge both our Little Learners Scheme and our school holiday soccer courses.
We believe our Community programme has improved beyond recognition over the last 24 months. It has been well received locally and our help with local clubs and teams on many fund raising initiatives has been very rewarding.
We can also announce that after holding talks with Arsenal Football Club, that we can again offer FREE admission to the Arsenal U/21 and Arsenals U/19 Development and Champions League games for the third year running. This will allow our supporters, local families and individuals to watch a good level of football totally FREE OF CHARGE.
Our medical team will again be headed up by our Clinical lead Megan Reid. Megan along with our Community physio Kate Simmons have worked with Community Manager to create a well thought out Nutrition and Health Education booklet. It is a booklet that can only help provide local parents and our young sports enthusiasts with sensible advice and is again made available FREE OF CHARGE.
We will again make available affordable Physiotherapy and Rehab clinics for local people, for local sports clubs and for local schools. Anyone interested in this service should initially contact Megan Reid at the club on 020 8207 3940 for more information.
Our aim is a simple one.. To continue helping local parents and local people by giving a good coaching service that’s fun for the kids, that gives sensible nutritional and health advice to parents and to offer specialist medical treatment thats affordable to all.
We of course want more local families and more local people to associate themselves with the club. We want more people to attend our matches at Meadow Park and if they do, it would help us in our efforts to remain in the new National league following our promotion in May.
We need local people to fully utilise all of the facilities that we offer here at Meadow Park. We need local people to use our Astro pitches in preference to others. We need people to use our bar and to hire our function suite. In simple terms we need people to realise that everyone who uses our facility, is directly helping their local club to progress and helping to keep us in the new National league.
Community Manager Charlie Hunter commented “This is a great time to be involved at the club. We’ve gained a fantastic promotion as an underdog club to the new National League and we have an ever evolving and improving Community programme…”
“I think it’s important that we run our programme specifically for local youngsters and local people. I think they appreciate any help we can give and if the local schools also choose to get involved with us, it can only help both the parents and the children.”
He concluded “Meadow Park has fast become one of the most improved facilities at our level of football. The more people using our facilities the stronger we will become, the more people associate with us can only help raise awareness of what we have to offer. Our staff are dedicated local people, who are determined to keep the club moving forward. This is an exciting time for the town and everyone connected with the club. We are building a Community programme that cares, that is structured and it will only improve over the coming years if people use our facility to the max.”
