The Academy as a whole currently has over 300 young people registered with them who attend all from different age ranges and abilities. The young people are encouraged to eat healthy, exercise, develop positive relationships with others as well as promote their confidence, football skills, social skills and health all in a positive environment.
The funding provided by Cunninghame Housing Association is to support the team entering local football tournaments as well as enabling them to purchase any new equipment that may be required through continued use and wear and tear.
The funding for Kilwinning Football Academy 2008’s came from the Associations “Making Our Communities Better Places Fund” which operates throughout the year (1st April to 31st March) until the allocated funding is exhausted.
