15 January 2019

Join Sky Blues in the Community for fun & inclusive football sessions every Saturday morning for 5-11 years at 'Saturday Club'.

Sky Blues in the Community’s Saturday Club has moved to the brand new indoor 3G pitch at The Alan Higgs Centre using a top of the range facility, one of its kind in Coventry.

Saturday Club is a football programme aimed at increasing the participation in football and provides opportunities for young people to get involved in the game at an introductory level.

Saturday Club is open for boys and girls between 5 to 11 years and includes a girls only session. Sessions are inclusive and built around the participants having fun, making friends and learning new skills in a safe environment.

Sessions take place on Saturday mornings at the Alan Higgs Centre on the indoor 3G pitch at the following times:

  • 10-11am (Reception, Year 1 & Year 2)
  • 11-12pm (Year 3, 4, 5 & 6)

Sessions cost £5 each or you can purchase a block of 5 sessions in advance for £20 - saving £5.

The Saturday Club provides further unique opportunities for all participants including the chance to progress onto our Player Development Centre, free Coventry City tickets, free match day experiences, medals and certificates.

The Saturday Club parents were happy to comment on their experiences:

‘’Erin and Orla’s confidence has grown since they started playing football. They look forward to seeing their friends and have so much fun during the sessions.’’

‘’The sessions are really helping James to develop some key skills. It is developing his ability to focus, listen and act on feedback. The input from the coaches is personalised and they are patient with him. His confidence is growing but above all he enjoys it and looks forward to a Saturday morning.’’

SBitC Saturday Club Lead, Leandra Whelband, said: ‘’It is fantastic to see so many young boys and girls getting involved in football through our Saturday Club. The sessions are fun, inclusive and engaging for all 5 to 11 years. We are thrilled to be back at the Alan Higgs Centre using their brand-new indoor pitch. We are excited for the Saturday Club to continue growing and providing opportunities for young people to get involved in football.
