Lantern Football Academy

This summer the Lantern Methodist Church are working in partnership with Kick London to establish a Football Academy. The Academy has four main objectives:

  1. To develop young people’s social, behavioural and emotional skills (helping them in their education and to avoid negative influences such as crime, drugs and anti-social behaviour).
  2. To develop the sporting skills and abilities of young people
  3. To improve the health and wellbeing of young people
  4. To develop young people’s knowledge and awareness of God’s love


£45 for all 14 weeks or £5 per session (Advance booking compulsory). There is a free taster session available for those who would like to try it out first (but please do email in advance to let us know that you are coming).

A certain number of complimentary spaces are available for Raynes Park High School students. Please enquire for more information.

Ages 7-15 and open to boys and girls.

Comfortable sports clothing should be worn. Shin pads and either small rubber stubble or flat-soled trainers should be worn. (ie No screw-in studs, large moulded studs or moulded blades).

We aim to take a number of the Academy players to the annual Kick Academy tournament which will take place on the 9th of July 2016 at Oasis Shirley Park. (More information to follow)
