Sky Blues in the Community will be working with over 700 children across the local area...
Sky Blues in the Community have announced information for their Whitsun and Summer holiday courses.
During Easter the football club’s charitable trust worked with over 700 children across Coventry and Warwickshire, and the community team are looking to reach more people by starting up a new camp at St Nicholas Park in Warwick.
Sky Blues Manager Steven Pressley was keen to support the holiday courses and wider work of Sky Blues in the Community: “The World Cup holiday camps are a great way for children to be fit and active during school holidays, and the experienced Sky Blues coaches are always striving to ensure everyone is enjoying themselves during their time with us.

“Coventry City Football Club has a strong track record bringing local young players through the Academy to play for the first team, and the holiday camps help us identify local talented youngsters to hopefully help continue that tradition long into the future.”
Pressley added “At the same time the community scheme are working to ensure that there are opportunities for all, with their disability and community-based funded programmes – which is fantastic and demonstrates the commitment of SBitC and Coventry City Football Club to the local community.”
During the Whitsun break the courses are running in Coventry at the Alan Higgs Centre and Bablake School, Nuneaton (Higham Lane School) and at St Nicholas Park in Warwick. The camps are open to boys and girls aged 5-12 (up to ages 14 at the Alan Higgs Centre camp) and are open to children with all footballing abilities. Full day and half day camps are available and a copy of all the times, dates and prices can be found here.
