Our coaches have been kept busy this week with our holiday courses at Accrington Academy that ran from 9am til 3pm every weekday during the school holidays.
For those that love football, we had our soccer schools running lead by Matt Parkinson and Amy Bland. The schools allow young players to learn, develop and achieve in their holidays. They cover a variety of topics such as control, passing, shooting and play matches throughout the course. With the sun shining this week the soccer schools have been making the most of being able to play on the 3G pitches.
The activity club lead by Holly Southward, have been just as busy as the soccer school with flag designing for the Euros as well as having competitions with the coaches such as the ring toss challenge and the kids v coaches football match which resulted in the kids winning! As well as this the children have been using their imagination to create their own games.
Matt Parkinson, Football Development Officer commented ‘It was great to see so many children keeping active this holiday and for them to take part in our courses. We cater for those children that enjoy football as well as those that prefer to play games and be crafty through our activity club.’
Amy Bland, Female Football Development Officer added ‘We hope to see all the children that were here this week again in summer as well as many new faces! They have been fantastic and we love seeing them enjoying themselves.’
On Friday afternoon we brought the inflatable goals up to the academy so that both courses could come together and practice their skills. Winstanley also made an appearance just in time to give the certificates! As well as inviting parents up to join in the fun! Each course choose 5 stars of the week that were chosen by the coaches and received a free gift.
