Ramsgate FC at the heart of the Local Community
Ramsgate FC is truly at the heart of the local community, and the Club sees itself as much more than just the town’s senior football team. As well as promoting men’s adult football, we have a substantial youth section that seeks to ensure that players of all ages meet their full potential, have an academy for 16-18 year olds based at the Hartsdown Academy, and from 2015/16 season aim to be participating in the highly regarded Youth Alliance League.
We are busy off the field too, with a coach development programme (to help progress the players’ development) and also support the training of referees. The Club also promotes a number of social events throughout the year, which are open to the wider community, and the Ramsgate Football Supporters’ Association also promote events and do work in the community.
Community Coaching is an area that the Club have developed over the past few years, with a number of initiatives in its Football In The Community Programme that aim to give youngsters fun exercises whilst keeping fit and learning the values of being part of a team.
You will find details of all the above on the website, however in summary, The Club recognises its role in the local community and aims to:
- Increase the opportunities for local players of all ages to compete in football
- Provide better coaching facilities for players to reach their full potential
- Encourage and instill a healthier lifestyle
- To improve facilities at Southwood?for the benefit of the Club and the local community
- To reward individual and group talents through the presentation of awards
- Identify initiatives through which the Club can assist and involve the community
