Young Whites and football enthusiasts are being invited to a series of Soccer Schools over the summer holidays and there is still time to sign up.
Delivered by The Leeds United Foundation, children aged 5 - 16 can sign up to take part in the Summer camps, designed to develop young people's technique, ability and general football and movement skills.
The official Leeds United Foundation courses are run by fully qualified UEFA coaches and take place at nine venues across the City and West Yorkshire. They are a great way for children to not only develop their footballs skills but a good way to make new friends, have fun and get a chance to experience football in a professional setting.
Players have the chance to take part in either a four day course or book individual days as preferred from just £59 for four days or £17 per day.
To end the week, and in collaboration with gaming retailer, GAME, children are invited to a special ‘FIFA Friday’ held at Elland Road. Children Under 17 will get to face each other for a day of challenges and skills sessions on FIFA 17 whilst the Tournament is also open for an adult tournament at the famous football venue.
Open to all ages, the FIFA 17 tournament will see gamers offered the chance to win unique rewards and compete to obtain the title of ‘The Official Leeds United Foundation FIFA Champion 2017.’ Priced at £25, all proceeds will go towards expanding the community work of The Leeds United Foundation.
Simon Fox, General Manager of The Leeds United Foundation said: ”The Soccer Schools are really popular with youngsters of any ability as well as parents. It can be quite challenging to occupy minds and time in the school holidays so it's a fantastic way to entertain children whilst extending their foot balling prowess.
“We're also really excited at the all new FIFA Friday's tournament with GAME and fans can book online for all courses via the official club website.
The Soccer Schools run from Thursday 27 July and can be booked day by day or for a full block.
