Aston Villa has a working relationship with semi-professional club Sporting Khalsa FC.
The aim of the relationship is to provide coach mentoring from Aston Villa community coaches to the Sporting Khalsa coaches.
In addition, the relationship provides young people from diverse backgrounds a platform in which to improve their football skills.
By working with Aston Villa coaches there is an outlet for talented players to join the Aston Villa development centers.
Sessions take place at the University of Wolverhampton (Walsall campus) and Aston University, working with over 100 young children aged six to 13-years-old.
For more information on Sporting Khalsa and to find out how to join the scheme please contact Alan Thomason on 0121 326 1552.
