Kick-A-Bout was founded in 2001 by David Allen and co-founder Colin Vince. While at university they were both coaching football on a part-time basis at Andover Leisure Centre. They also spent a significant period of time gaining vital experience in America. Due to their unique coaching style, they quickly found themselves attaining a weekly attendance of up to 150 children.
Kick-A-Bout continues to grow in popularity and now have a team of staff coaching approximately 600 children per week in 12 separate venues across the south of England.
