Football fun in February half-term

futsalcampChester FC Community Trust have a fun-packed programme of holiday activities planned for boys & girls during the February half-term.
 
The popular Chester FC Soccer School will be running over two days at The Cheshire County Sports Club in Upton on Monday February 20th and Tuesday February 21st, and will help children perfect their skills with FA qualified coaches and make new friends in a fun environment.
 
And there’s a new addition to the Trust’s programme with the first Chester FC Futsal Camp being held at Blacon High School on Wednesday February 22nd and Thursday February 23rd.
 
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced small sided game originating from South America. The emphasis is on technical ability and creativity under pressure. Many of the world’s stars including Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo played Futsal growing up and credit it with helping develop skills and to improve as footballers. This camp will help children learn about the game through drills, games and tournaments.
 
All participants will receive a certificate, gift and there will be opportunities to meet Chester FC manager Jon McCarthy and his players.
 
Each day runs from 10am until 4pm and costs just £10 with an optional early drop-off available at 9am for £2.50. Children will need a packed lunch, snacks, plenty of drinks as well as appropriate footwear, shin pads and suitable clothing.
