Our summer sports provision is well underway and caters for everyone aged 2-102!
Our soccer schools and activity clubs are running Monday to Friday throughout the holidays for all 4-12 year olds. So if your little one is football mad bring them along and give our soccer school a try! If football isn’t their thing then why not try activity club, the schedule is packed full of crafts, multi sport games and activities. Our first week saw lots of regular faces as well as plenty newbies! Soccer School was full of fun practices and small sided games while activity club had a lion king themed day as well a trip to the park to make the most of the lovely sunshine. We ended the week with a visit from Oliver’s Zoo who came in and showed the children their animals as well as letting the children handle creatures such as snakes, spiders and lizards.
If your children are a little older and need something to do during the evenings then send them to our Summer Kicks project, this is running across the Hyndburn area in partnership with Earl Transport and the local police force. The kicks sessions are free sports session for all aged 11 to 17 which are free to attend and aim to help reduce anti-social behaviour and get young people playing sport. The sessions are:

This summer for the first time we are continuing to run our Football Development Centre (FDC) as well as our Stanley Kickers. Our FDC sessions will run on a Monday evening for all aged 4-11 year olds that enjoy playing football on a regular basis at St Christopher’s High School. The sessions focus on a different skill each week as well small sided matches that they can practise their skills learnt earlier in the session.
Our popular Stanley Kickers continues on a Saturday morning at St Christopher’s for all 2-4 year olds that are wanting to take their first steps into football. The sessions see the children partaking in fun games that allow them to get used to having a football at their feet.
