KicKStart is expanding due to popular demand.


Applications will be taken soon for a new KicKStart venture starting in

December/January 2015/16 for U7’s - U8’s Mini Soccer (5 v 5) only.


KicKStart has operated on Sundays since it was founded in 2002 but sanctioning has recently

been awarded by Nottinghamshire FA enabling us to develop/retain Mini Soccer in the Ashfield/Mansfield area on Saturdays too.


All games will be played on a central venue provided by KicKStart Academy as service providers of the League. We are unique as a League because everything is arranged for you throughout the Season including your game, pitch and your Referee. We even put your nets up and take them down. All you need to do on match days is turn up with your team, play your game and enjoy it.


If you are interested in joining us on Saturdays, more information will be available soon by clicking on Documents & Links on the left > see Saturday League Forms > How to Register a Team – Player.

Here you will also find a Club Application Form and Team Application Form to download. In the meantime, please email Elaine Pritchard (League Secretary/Registrar) at to register your interest providing your Club and Team name, your name as Club Secretary/Team Manager, your address and your mobile number. Forms will be available to download soon after our Induction on 20th August 2015 where you will also be given the opportunity to register your interest.
