Participating in and enjoying sport is a fantastic experience for children and young people. Aside from the obvious fitness benefits, sport teaches about teamwork, improves self-confidence and motivation, helps young people build relationships with peers and coaches, and is generally extremely fun. Nothing beats the feeling of coming away from a successful training session or match.
Which is why Affinity Fostering sponsor The Bears Coaching, supporting their under-11s team. In fact, we’re the group’s longest running sponsor, having supported the team since they were under-7s.
Head Coach Max has said "Affinity Fostering are our longest running sponsor and have been side by side with our team every step of the way. They have kept this team going through the tough times and now we look forward to an extremely bright future ahead."
And it’s fantastic to see how the nurturing support of The Bears Coaching have helped the team progress. This season they have started playing competitive matches in the Mid-Lincs Youth League, bringing new challenges to a group of young people who continue to grow and learn together.
The Bears Coaching was started by Head Coach, Max Ward, and focuses on delivering high quality, affordable, and fun coaching to children and young people aged between 3 and 16. Their offering includes holiday camps, school and nursery sessions, community sessions, and Bears FC which we sponsor and they believe that football should be accessible to all children.
The Affinity Family looks forward to continuing our sponsorship into the future and helping The Bears continue their ethos that children should be able to learn, laugh, and play.
