What is The Cage?Cage

The Cage is a 2.5m high – 32 sq. m footprint enclosure for the fast and intense game of Panna KO football.  Games are 2-on-2, 2 minutes long, skills-focused and quite different to normal football.  Events last for around two hours and are open to any young person within the P5 to S6 age range.  Individual games are matched according to age.

What do we do with it?

Football Cage events are run predominantly in the Tillydrone community area and at both Riverbank Primary School and St Machar Academy.  When we can, we will also support youth events outwith our focus area

The Cage events have proved to be a big hit, regularly attracting upwards of 30 – 40 young people.  As well as providing a sporting activity with a focus on physical fitness and good health, the Cage games provide a focus on working together, and good sportsmanship.  It has also proved invaluable in enabling us to meet and engage with young people, providing opportunities to make a positive difference to young lives.

Why we use The Cagecage

Although our youth worker and volunteers are all Christians, we do not push our faith, but are driven to help others.  By spending time with young people, our aim is to show them that we care for them, and are willing to walk with them through difficult times that they may experience.  We aim to help young people feel valued, with a sense of good self-worth and purpose.  The Cage allows us an opportunity to start on that journey.
