Stuck for something for the kids to do over half-term? Well, the Chester FC Community Trust have the answer.
The Trust have a fun-packed programme of holiday activities planned for boys and girls during the February half-term.
The popular Chester FC Soccer School will be running over two days at The Cheshire County Sports Club in Upton on Monday, February 20 and Tuesday, February 21.
And there’s a new addition to the Trust’s programme with the first Chester FC Futsal Camp being held at Blacon High School on Wednesday, February 22 and Thursday, February 23.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced, small-sided game originating from South America. The emphasis is on technical ability and creativity under pressure. Many of the world’s top players including Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo played Futsal growing up and credit it with helping develop skills and to improve as footballers.
All participants will receive a certificate and gift - and there will be opportunities to meet Blues manager Jon McCarthy and his players.
Each day runs from 10am until 4pm and costs £10 with an optional early drop-off available at 9am for an extra £2.50.
Children will need a packed lunch, snacks, plenty of drinks as well as appropriate footwear, shinpads and suitable clothing.
Jim Green, formerly of this parish and now chief executive of Trust, said: "We’re really looking forward to the February half-term and have put together a fun and varied programme that will help youngsters have fun honing their skills and keep them entertained during the holidays.
"We’re particularly thrilled to be holding a Chester FC Futsal Camp for the first time and really excited for the potential of Futsal, both in terms of giving youngsters the opportunity to experience this fast and thrilling game and also for the future development."
