Easter Holiday Camps – Book Now

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!

Places can be booked online or by contacting Tom at or on 01236 451511.
