The foundation run a variety of weekly courses for all ages and abilities and offer half term fun days and 4 day courses for children and young people at their venues in Cramlington, Ponteland, Newcastle and Consett. They still have places available for February half term and at only £10 per day, are very good value. I know I would much prefer my kids to be working on their skills, learning fairness and how to play as a team as well as getting some much needed fresh air with their friends rather than sitting at home and watching tv/playing on their computer.
The Newcastle United Foundation provides lots of information for parents on their website which details everything from child to coach ratio, safeguarding and what you need to bring which certainly puts my mind at ease.
