Children and young people aged 8-15 will be pitching their sporting skills against the WSL talents of members of Chelsea Ladies FC.
The event takes place on Monday 22 August between 3pm and 4pm at Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park, St George's Road, Southwark.
The session is part of 98.5 Capital FM's Help a Capital Child 'Sport in the City' project which offers free sport activities to London's disadvantaged children and young people.
The mixed session of football and dodgeball will give girls and boys a chance to test their headers, tackles, and throws against Chelsea's finest female players - defender Sophie Perry, midfielders Naomi Cole and Drew Spence, and striker Becky Jane.
Sophie Perry has represented England at Under-23 level and works with the club as a Chelsea Foundation football coach. Sophie says: "Sport develops team spirit, discipline, focus and a common goal, as well as being great fun. It's fantastic to be able to support this project."
UK Fitness Network have run the Sport in the City sessions in six London boroughs: Southwark, Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Hackney and Islington.
Sharon West, Director of Fundraising and Communications for Help a Capital Child added: "Chelsea Ladies provide terrific roles models for young Londoners, especially girls. Recent events show that positive activities outside of school have a big part to play in keeping young people out of trouble. Chelsea FC's support for Sport in the City is invaluable."
