Oxford United in the Community is hosting half-term holiday courses for budding young footballers to learn new skills.
Boys and girls aged four to 14 are invited to the specialist sessions in a 3G indoor sports dome which are tailored for children of all abilities. Each day usually consists of warm ups, skills sessions including passing, turning, dribbling and shooting and mini-matches.
Kate Longworth, CEO at Oxford United in the Community, said: “Our half-term football courses are really popular among children and parents. The courses are structured for children to have fun and improve their skills in a nurturing and safe environment. They are delivered as part of the charity’s commitment to support active and healthy lifestyles among youngsters in Oxfordshire.”
The half-term holiday football camps aim to develop respect, sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork in a fun environment. All the coaches are FA qualified and have up to date safeguarding, first aid training and CRC checks. Children need to bring their own football kit, including shin-pads, boots, trainers, plus lunch and drinks.
The sessions will all take place at the Oxford Academy, Sandy Lane West, Oxford between 9am and 3pm next week. There are separate courses for boys and girls and each child will be presented with a certificate at the end of the course.
Oxford United in the Community is the football club’s official charity and helps inspire youngsters to reach their potential and improve their health and wellbeing via the power of football, engagement and education. The charity’s coaching staff deliver programmes in nursery and primary schools across Oxfordshire. They are qualified not only in football coaching, but in teaching interventions including Real PE, which focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning.
The half term football courses are £75 for the full week, or £20 per day. For further details and to book, please visit here: https://officialsoccerschools.co.uk/oxfordunited/half-term-football-course-oxford.html
