Easter Holiday Camps - Book Now

Tue, 15th Mar 2016 6:12pm

Clyde FC Easter Holiday Camps kick-off in under a month – giving kids the ideal opportunity to spend their school break having fun and playing football. The camps, run by the Clyde FC Community Foundation, are open to children between 4-15 years old and will be held throughout Cumbernauld.

They run across two weeks; Week 1 from Monday 4th April to Friday 8th April and Week 2 from Monday 11th April to Friday 14th April. During Week 1 only, the kids will have the option to stay for either two hours (morning or afternoon) or full day sessions at Ravenswood Sport Centre. Week 2 will be delivered at Chryston Secondary School, mornings only.

Tom Elliott, who heads up the Community Foundation at Clyde FC is enthusiastic about the initiative. He said: "It's brilliant for the connection between the club and the community – and really good for the kids. Exercise is a great thing for young people. They get a lot from it and it helps develop them steadily.

"Following the success of previous camps I have delivered at a number of clubs, we are all set for this year at Clyde FC. We’re going to have a really good Easter."

During the camps, children will benefit from structured coaching sessions directed by SFA qualified instructors, undertake fun challenges, collect a completion certificate and have the chance to meet some famous faces.

Club captain Mark McLaughlin also stressed the importance of running programmes such as the Easter training camps. He said: "It's good for future Clyde stars and to get children started early with football, to keep them active.  It’s also a great initiative to hopefully get kids saying to their mums and dads that they want to go and see Clyde play."

Everyone who takes part will also receive a free match ticket for the Clyde v East Fife match on Saturday 16th April and also be entered into the half-time draw during that game, with the prize the chance to play on the pitch at Broadwood!
