The soccer school will run Wednesday 6th to Friday 8th June 2012 for ages 6 – 11 years from 10am – 3pm, with a supervised lunch break. The costs are £5 for half a day, £10 per day and £25 for 3 days
Ed Grady, football development coordinator said, “This is an excellent opportunity for young people within our local community to access high quality football coaching. The sessions will focus on all aspects of football, from basic skills and techniques to match based coaching principles, through to a small sided tournament.
We will be focusing on the young players developing throughout the week and will run a series of small competitions which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their abilities and new skills. We will also be looking to link the soccer school with local partner clubs and open up pathways into competitive football.”
The football development project is part of the school’s Football Foundation funded facility development which included the building of a third generation (3G) astroturf pitch. The project aim is to develop key football targets such as women and girls, mini soccer and disability playing opportunities.
