#EduFootyAid - A national football league for teachers
We want to use football to bring teachers together and build a community. There’s no two-ways about it, teaching is a stressful job and it’s important that teachers look after their mental health. With its combination of camaraderie and exercise football is a win-win for wellbeing.
We have divided the country into three regional groups and each team will play one game a term (3 games total). The winners from each region will meet at the end of the school year for a one-day tournament and the chance to be crowned the country’s best teacher team.
Squads are large (20+) because we appreciate people won’t always be able to commit to every game. Currently, the North East and North West have enough players to field a team and we are actively recruiting teachers for all the other areas. It is a mixed gender, age, and ability league, and we welcome anybody who works in a school or educational facility.
Each season we will be fundraising for a chosen charity. Every player in the league fundraises together via our JustGiving page. Our season target is £5,000 which works out at about £20 per player. We’ll send all registered players a fundraising pack with ideas for raising money.
Build community, raise money, represent your area…
I absolutely loved being part of #Edufootyaid, meeting some fantastic teachers and supporting an excellent cause. I can’t wait to defend our title!
The 4 hour drive from Hertfordshire was absolutely worth it. Met some great people, doubled our target and can’t wait for the next one!
It was amazing to be part of #EduFootyAid, I met some incredible people all coming together for a really important cause. It was great fun and I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
