The Premier League 4 Sport (PL4S) initiative has successfully been running since 2009 and has locally engaged with 2089 young people and with recent funding success the project will now run until 2013.
The PL4S project is a participation initiative that offers young people aged 11 - 19 the chance to experience Olympic disciplines judo, badminton, table tennis and the additional sport hockey, all as part of its 2012 legacy plans, it will also address the drop off in sports participation when young people leave secondary school.
Back in 2009, Bolton Wanderers first team due Tamir Cohen and Gretar Steinsson helped to support the launch of the Premier League 4 Sport project.
Bolton Wanderers Community Trust (BWCT) will continue to work in partnership with local community clubs; Bolton Lads and Girls Club, Forest badminton club, Farnworth Table Tennis Club, Bolton Hockey club and the newly formed Ghosia Judo club, to allow access to top quality coaching and development.
Cohen and Steinsson's time was spend meeting secondary school pupils from across Bolton and participating in short games of the four sports which are being promoted through the three-year project.
Cohen said: "It's good that the Premier League and the government are doing all they can to get children involved in a wide range of sports."
Steinsson added: "It's important that people get involved with sports. It is an enjoyable and sociable way to stay fit and healthy, and campaigns like these shows how seriously the Premier League takes its commitment to sport all throughout the country."
