AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust and Care South have successfully been working in partnership for over 3 season. The partnership encompasses two main activities: the Extra Time project and Walking Fotball.
The Extra Time project involved AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust coaches visiting the various Care South care home across Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and other Dorset locations. As part of the interaction with the residents the Community Sports Trust coaches take part in various activities; including sharing AFC Bournemouth memories through photos and various other items of memorabilia.
A crucial part of the Trust’s visit to the homes is the Chair Football activity. The Community Coaches lead the sessions through encouraging the participants to pass the ball around the room, whilst remaining sat down. To build on the session, obstacles and goals are added, which also replicates more common football practises.
