Sports Development

The Sports Development Programme at Coram’s Fields uses sport for positive social change. Physical and mental health are equally important and exercise and sport can be used to improve children and young people’s personal and social development and enhance individuals’ lives.

What We Do

The after school sports programme and annual bespoke sports projects all encompass our commitment to providing open access, free and purposeful sport and exercise to all children and young people. We use targeted approaches to engage girls and young women, those at risk of exclusion and anti-social behaviour, and individuals with special education needs and disabilities.

Our sports programme offers free sports activities for young people aged 5-19 years regardless of ability. Our football pitches and basketball courts offer some of the best facilities in London for young people and our diverse activity programme means that there’s something for everyone. 

For many, our programme offers their first exposure to sports, introducing them to new activities and opportunities.

Activities we run

The Camden Youth League takes place every Saturday morning from 9am – 1pm for Under 8s – 12s, with organised and structured football matches with qualified referees. For more information please contact Zahid Hossainon  zahid@protouchsa.co.uk

Case Study:
SA’s Story

“Since she was 5 years old SA loved playing football and from the age of 8, started accessing our football development programme. Initially quiet and a little timid, SA has grown to be a confident young woman who is well liked and popular in her community as well as establishing herself as a formidable competitor. We have been delighted to give SA opportunities to really excel in a sport she loves, including playing in the Coram’s Fields football team, where she would consistently find herself to be the only girl in the entire league. Our sports team supported her to attend tournaments and helped nurture her talent by providing bespoke, 1:1 sessions, focussing on fitness and skills. Despite almost always being the only girl on the pitch, she let nothing discourage her, if anything, the lack of female players made her more determined to play and enjoy football. In November 2021, at the age of 15, SA’s hard work and resilience paid off as she was offered a football scholarship to play for Arsenal Ladies Junior Development team. She was of course extremely excited to be given this opportunity and is now focussed on honing her skills to become a professional footballer. We’re proud to say that Coram’s Fields helped to set SA off on her career path and are delighted to have been able to give her opportunities that she may not have otherwise had. The Sports Development Team will continue to support her as she takes on new challenges and we at Coram’s Fields wish her every success for the future.”
