Fans, Teens and Childrens FC

Fans FC

In partnership with MacMillan, SUCF provide 1 session per week for people affected by cancer to come along and take part in low level exercise, helping them to keep physically active and giving them the skills and knowledge to maintain or increase there daily level of physical activity. The group is also a fantastic opportunity to meet other people in a similar position or have had a similar experience.

Childrens FC

In collaboration with SIV and staff at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital we provide a timetable of activity at some of the city’s best known facilities. The aim is for children affected by cancer to experience places like Bramall Lane (behind the scenes), Ice Sheffield, English Institute for Sport etc. The secondary aim is to provide parents, carers and families with a bit of respite.

Teens FC

This programme works with young people aged primarily between 16 and 25 years that have or have had cancer. We invite young people to Bramall Lane for an initial meeting including a ground tour. This time is used to discuss what the group would like to do over the next 8 weeks. Our first ever group chose to organise and run a fundraising tournament /family fun day for people affected by Cancer.

Who

People affected by Cancer.

What

Our adult Fans FC programme consists of a light physical activity session at the SUFC Academy, to suit all abilities and fitness levels. We also include a social opportunity for you to chat with likeminded people. Representatives from MacMillan Active Everyday are also available to offer guidance and support for people with Cancer that want to keep active or get more active.

Our Children’s and Teens Fighting Cancer programmes offer different opportunities to young people undergoing different types of treatment. Last year we had a small group of teenagers that came together to create a football tournament that they could take part in. Over 100 people attended raising £500! Our Children’s programme is about having fun! Siblings and close family/friends are invited to get involved too. Last years programme saw young people enjoy a VIP visit to Bramall Lane, SUFC’s training ground, The English Institute for Sport, and Ice Sheffield. This year we will work closely with Sheffield Children’s Hospital and CLIC Sargent to provide this programme again over the Summer.
