Easter Holiday Camps

Sun, 19th Mar 2017 5:08pm

Stepps Primary School P2s helped kick-off the Clyde FC Easter Holiday Camps – 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 at Stepps Playing Fields.

They run across two weeks:

  • Week 1 from Monday 3rd April – Friday 7th April
  • Week 2 from Monday 10th April – Friday 14th April.

Kids will have the option to stay for either two hours (morning or afternoon) or full day.

Tom Elliott who heads up the Community Foundation 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. We’re going to have a really good Easter."

During the camps, children will benefit from structured coaching sessions directed by SFA qualified coaching staff, undertake fun challenges, collect a completion certificate and receive a gift from the football club.

First team player, Sean Higgins 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 Elgin City match on Saturday 15th April and will be entered into the half-time draw during that game, with the prize the chance to play on the pitch at Broadwood!
