10801786_886228788084075_2154403092038896480_nNew accessible football sessions for deaf kids aged 5 to 10 years have been launched in association with Free Kicks United, the pan disability football scheme created by The Peterborough United Foundation and the charity Free Kicks Foundation.

The sessions are for children with a range of disabilities but two coaches present will be present especially so that deaf kids don’t miss a thing!

Held at the impressive Nene Park Academy Sports Hall, close to where Peterborough United’s first team and adult deaf team train, the first two sessions are free and after that just £2.

The sessions will be every three weeks for deaf children and are for all abilities and for boys and girls. The first session is on Saturday 21st October at 11am. If you have a deaf child between 5 and 10 years old, come along!

Peterborough United’s deaf football project already provide football coaching to four other other teams; men’s, under-13’s, under-16’s and a female team. The adult team have just entered the national deaf football league and got their first win against Brighton and Hove Albion and the under-13 team won the NDCS National Tournament in May.
