Sporting Elite CIC run an FA Affiliated Sunday Community League which takes place once every month which is for 14-16 year olds. The league was designed to a specific structure to allow teams to compete in a league, with the session also involving an educational workshops.
Our debut season for the 2018/19 season began in September, and we enjoyed huge success with the finals being played at Birmingham City's training ground on 5th May 2019 which saw Aston Villa emerge as the community league winners 2018/2019.
What to Expect
On Every game day players will arrive with their teams and will have a 45 minute Triple E workshop in the theatre with the TSA Projects UK team. The workshop is designed to educate empower young people who are in or at risk of gang membership or negative peer association, whilst creating a safe space for them to express their selves. The work shop will also raise awareness and educate the young players about a variety of community based issues, and higlight the most common current isses in society. Knife crime, social media exposure, cyber bulling, harrassment, and racism were all key topics this year amongst others. The workshops would last around 45 minutes on every match day.
