Get Your Tots Active

Have you been finding the outdoors a bit too cold for your little one recently? Why not introduce them to our indoor Active Tots programme – an introduction to the world of physical activity for 2-3 year olds. The programme is designed to encourage familiarity and confidence to take part in early years activity.

It provides both boys and girls aged 2, 3 and 4 with an introduction to football, using fun games and activities to teach the sport's primary skills. Coaches pay particular focus on developing children's coordination, balance, ball movement, and self-confidence.

We currently run two sessions:

Bedwell: Every Wednesday morning 10am-10.45, at Bedwell Community Centre.

Hertford: Every Sunday morning 9.30am-10.15 at St Johns Hall, Churchfields, SG13 8AE

Sessions are £3. We would encourage you to call the office on 01438 222222 or email [email protected] to book yourself onto a FREE taster session.

Congratulations Ken Headington!

The Foundation attended the annual Herts Sports Partnership Service to Sport Awards evening on Tuesday 28th November at the Western Auditorium, University of Hertfordshire. The awards evening acknowledges and celebrates the massive contribution that volunteers, education and clubs make to Hertfordshire sport…….and we weren’t just there to make up the numbers.

We are very proud to say our very own Ken Headington was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to sport in Hertfordshire. Ken has only been with the Foundation a short while however, his experience has seen him coach and manage a number of grassroots football clubs in Stevenage, as well as found the Upfront Project, a very successful youth diversionary project, that saw hundreds of young people attend over the years.

It was great to see Kens wealth of experience, commitment and hard work, acknowledged within the industry and we would like to congratulate Ken on this prestigious award and wish him all the very best in his next chapter here at The Foundation. Well done Ken!

Matchday & Mascot Packages Available

For every home game, the Foundation and Stevenage FC offer matchday and mascot packages for children aged 5-12.

Matchday packages can include a one-hour coaching session at The Academy with Foundation coaches, followed by the chance to take a penalty on the hallowed Lamex turf, tickets in the West Stand to watch the match and a complimentary packed lunch for all children that attend.

These packages start at £15 per child and all bookings require a minimum of 10 children and maximum of 20 children per package.

Being a mascot is a great way to experience a VIP day at The Lamex. The mascot will get a unique look behind the scenes and meet all their heroes in the dressing room as well as warming up on the pitch before the game. Mascot packages are available for home and away games and include a packed lunch, complimentary tickets for the mascot and one adult with the option to purchase additional tickets for other family members and a Stevenage FC Foundation goodie bag.

To cap it all off, the mascot will walk out with the players at the beginning of the game and take part in the pre-match fair play handshake.

Mascot packages are available for all league home games for the 2017/18 season and are just £100!
