Oxford United in the Community is hosting a series of summer holiday football camps for budding young footballers to learn new skills and get active.
Coaches from United’s official charity are hosting courses during the summer holidays for boys and girls of all abilities. Boys and girls aged four to 14 are invited to the specialist sessions which will be taking place at five locations. Each day usually consists of warm-ups, skills sessions including passing, turning, dribbling and shooting and mini matches.
The courses are being held at The Oxford Academy, Crowmarsh Recreation Ground, Christopher’s Primary School, Lechlade, Hanney Recreation Ground and Cherwell School.
Chris Lowes, Head of Oxford United in the Community, said: “Our summer holiday football courses are really popular and we’re recommending parents book now to avoid disappointment.
“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 school 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.
Oxford United in the Community is the football club’s official charity and is celebrating its 30th anniversary. It has launched a Dream Big fund-raising campaign to help it help more people in the community.
The charity 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 courses run from 9am to 3pm five days a week and are £75 per week, or £20 per day and can be booked via:
