Over 80 children aged between five and 13 participated in our February Half Term coaching courses run by the Club’s Foundation Trust.
The three-day programme, which included skills sessions, small matches, penalty shootout and crossbar challenge competitions, was very well received.
There were awards for all who attended and individual prizes for the competition winners, presented by Port Vale defender Ryan Inniss.
All sessions were delivered by FA qualified coaches and were designed around the FA Long Term Player Development Model (LTPD).
On the back of the success of the scheme, the Foundation Trust is now planning to run two-day programmes over the Easter break.
Foundation Manager Tom Sherratt commented: “It was fantastic to have such a high number of children taking part and hopefully the experience provided has shown the ambition we have to increase the number of young children participating in sport within our community.”
“The course was a huge success and we hope was beneficial to all who took part and they join us again during the next programme.”
