Newcastle United Foundation October half-term football Holiday Courses on sale now

Children and teenagers looking for half-term fun with friends, family members and Newcastle United Foundation coaching staff can join our upcoming Holiday Courses this October.

The popular half-term sessions are open to boys and girls of all footballing abilities, who can learn, play and enjoy themselves on the football pitch with robust safety measures in place.

As the safety and welfare of all Newcastle United Foundation participants, their families and staff remain of paramount importance, Holiday Courses this year look slightly different.

All courses in Consett, Newcastle and Northumberland this October meet current guidance issued by the Government and Football Association regarding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Holiday Courses number are strictly limited and are open to children in schools years Year 2 to Year 7, operating from Monday to Thursday as normal.

However, to ensure everyone’s safety, the Foundation has introduced three-hour sessions per day for players to join morning sessions OR afternoon sessions.

Parents and guardians are able book youngsters into morning groups from 9am until 12pm for the four-day course, or into afternoon groups from 1pm until 4pm for the week*.

For the moment, Holiday Courses will not include lunchtime supervision due to hygiene protocols on-site.

Andy Dobby, Newcastle United Foundation Football Development Manager, said: “We had a fantastic summer with hundreds of children joining our Holiday Courses during the school holidays.

“Our coaches will ensure everyone enjoys themselves during October half-term too and they are all looking forward to providing top quality football provision for young players joining us this month.”

He added: “We’re continuing to monitor Government and FA guidance on a daily basis and working hard with our partner venues to ensure we are providing a safe and clean environment for our participants, their families and our staff.

“We received some fantastic feedback from parents, carers and guardians over the summer, both in person and online, and I would like to thank everyone for their comments which play an important role in how we tailor our sessions for you.

“I am confident our professional Newcastle United Foundation team will once again provide a high-quality and enjoyable experience for all of our participants this October half-term.”
