COMMUNITY: Sky Blues players visit SBitC Easter activities

11 April 2018

Coventry City players Lee Burge and Jordan Shipley visited the Sky Blues in the Community Easter Holiday Football Camps at the Alan Higgs Centre on Tuesday afternoon.

80 children attended the Easter Holiday Football Course on Tuesday, which are for both boys and girls aged between 5 and 11 years and focus on children having fun through football activities.

Children attending work with FA qualified coaches who deliver sessions that are fun, safe and engaging and help them improve their skills too.

Burge and Shipley joined children at the Alan Higgs Centre camp for some small sided games and penalty shoot outs, as well as photos and signatures. The Sky Blues players also took part in a Q & A with youngsters, where questions ranged from favourite goals and saves to their recent performances on FIFA 18!
