JABS B8 FC is a non-profitable organisation run by a group of DBS certified and FA qualified volunteers. The club provides a football programme for children aged 6+ and aims to improve the lives of young people both on and off the pitch.
The club looks to ensure children in the community are leading a healthy lifestyle and provides a safe place for children to make new friends and build their self-confidence and social skills.
The club’s boys team has been running successfully for the last three years, but JABS B8 FC has been inundated with requests from the local community to introduce sessions for young girls. The club felt that they had a responsibility to cater to everyone in the community and ensure equal opportunities for girls both in football and their later lives.
