COMMUNITY: Sky Blues in the Community welcome young footballers across two venues this Saturday afternoon

21 January 2017

SBitC are hosting the final stage of our EFL Kids Cup competition this afternoon...

Sky Blues in the Community welcome young footballers across two venues this Saturday afternoon.

Shortly after midday, Keresley Grange, Whitmore Park and Dunchurch Primary Schools will kick-off at the Ryton Training Ground in the final stage of our EFL Kids Cup competition. 

The winners of the round robin tournament will go on to represent the Sky Blues in the Area finals – and hopefully then the Regional and National phases of the competition, where they will face schools representing other League clubs. The final of the competition takes place at Wembley on Play Off final weekend. 

All of the children playing on Saturday at Ryton will also get a ticket for the Sky Blues’ league match against Fleetwood Town at the Ricoh Arena.

The Ricoh is the venue for a demonstration by participants from the latest set of Sky Blues in the Community football courses, which took place over the Christmas holidays.

Boys and girls who won the Respect, Star Player or Coaches awards at the popular holiday courses will be showing off their skills on the pitch at half time.

At each course, Sky Blues coaches nominate young players from each age group for the ‘Respect award’, which recognises children who display an exemplary attitude during the camps – including good behaviour, helping the coaches and assisting other players. The Coaches award is a player chosen by staff for their positive attitude and effort, whilst the Star Player is awarded to the camp MVP for each age group.

The holiday camps are open to boys and girls aged 5-12 of all footballing abilities, and at half time on Saturday the players will demonstrate some of the drills and games that the coaches run on the camps.

The camps run again during the upcoming February half-term holiday – to see details or to book, click HERE
