We’re delighted to announce that FC Halifax Town Foundation’s holiday camps are running this Winter.  Come and join us in the build-up to Christmas.

Our camps are open to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 12 years (school year 1 to year 7), of all abilities and will help budding Harry Kane’s or Jull Scott’s to develop their football skills, increase confidence, whilst keeping active with friends during the holidays.

Meals and snacks will be provided for all participants and those who qualify for benefit related free school meals can join the camp for free.

Our superb camps are delivered by qualified and background checked coaches.  The camps will include a variety of fun sessions and games to help support the development of movement, balance, coordination and basic football skills as well as plenty of time playing games.  The camp will also include activities around healthy eating, some of which parents can join! A Christmas lunch will also be provided.

All of our football courses run within the FC Halifax Town player progression pathway and can support the progression of players into our wider Community and Academy coaching sessions.
