After School Clubs

Scunthorpe United CSET has over 25 years of experience delivering after school activities in the Scunthorpe area. Our goal is to provide safe, fun and challenging sessions for participants of all abilities. There is more public awareness now about how important it is for young people to be involved in sport not only for the health benefits it offers but also for their social development; we believe that delivering after school clubs provides that opportunity for your pupils to enjoy sport. We can deliver purely football activities or multi-sport options for after school clubs which the main emphasis on having fun.

Lunch-Time Clubs

Just like the after school clubs, the lunch time activities are based on being active and taking part in fun based games. While doing this the children will be working on skills such as throwing, catching and team work. Lunch time clubs have proved popular in schools across the region for engaging children in positive activities during their lunch break

Female Football Development

The Football League Trust proudly launched its Female Football Development programme (FFD) throughout England in 2014, with a goal to ‘Inspire the Future Female Game’.

Playing an integral role in the progression of the Women’s & Girls’ game, FLT is driving participation growth and retention, as it delivers thousands of FFD sessions built upon an ethos of fun, friends, and fitness.

54 clubs are delivering FFD sessions aimed at 14-25 year-olds with Level 2 qualified coaches, in cohesion with County FAs, Schools, Colleges and Universities to engage with fresh participants, as part of the new FA Women’s and Girls’ programme. £2.4m will be invested over the next two years from Sport England funding, in an attempt to make Women’s Football the second most played team sport in England, by reaching over 40,000 new players. FFD is playing a pivotal part of this, accounting for over a third of the national target.
