Collas Crill get on the ball.

Collas Crill have joined up with the Jersey Football Association to sponsor its youth community programme for the next three years. Aimed at those between the ages of five and 11, the Jersey FA Collas Crill Community Programme provides young people of all abilities with the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game. Delivered by two full time and seven part-time community coaches, the programme has set-up a range of initiatives including in-curricular primary School PE Lessons, weekly after school skill sessions, coach development and mentoring. Brian Oliver, the Jersey FA Football Development Manager, said: “Our community programme puts young people at the heart of the learning process in a way that is fun and engaging. Thanks to the support of Collas Crill, we are able to provide qualified coaches to develop a player pathway into junior football on the island’. Dionne Gilbert, partner and head of the CSR committee in Jersey, said: “Corporate social responsibility is about supporting and understanding the needs of our community”.
