Football courses prove big hit with kids

26th March 2014

Swansea City Community Trust's February half-term football courses proved to be a major hit with kids.

A total of eight soccer camps were held over the five counties of Powys, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea, where budding footballers (ages 6-13) turned up in their numbers to take part in the coaching courses.

Reflecting on the successful period, regional co-ordinator Nigel Mathias hopes the Swans Community Trust will be able to offer their football courses to an even greater number of young players in the future.

"The holiday soccer camps are a huge aspect of the Community Trust's work," said Mathias. 

"We pride ourselves in providing a fun, safe, structured and learning environment, where the children can fully express themselves under the guidance of our B Licence qualified coaches.  

"It's massively important we aim to add to our venues so even more communities have the chance to experience our service, helping a greater amount of children benefit from both the physical and social aspects of football.  

"The Camps also give the coaches a great chance to see more children playing, which can only be of benefit to Swansea City FC. 

"These same children may be running out at the Liberty Stadium in future years as Swansea City 1st team stars."

Meanwhile, plans are already in place for the Easter holiday football camps. For further information on these courses, click HERE.
