Football courses to take place across Midlothian

Love Football? Then now’s your chance to sign up for Scottish FA Easter holiday courses taking place at venues across Midlothian.

The popular courses are an opportunity for children to take part in a healthy activity in a safe environment during their school break. Courses of varying lengths will run between April 3 and 13.

Midlothian Council is hosting a number of football courses for boys and girls aged from three to 16 years, which will work on improving goal scoring and technical skills, as well as providing a specialist goalkeeping camp.

Keith Wright, Midlothian Council’s football development officer, said: “These holiday courses are a great opportunity for young people to meet new friends and get active. The Scottish FA coaches will lead fun sessions which provide an opportunity for children to improve their football skills and participate regardless of experience.”

Participants receive a certificate and gift at the end of each course. The second child from the same family will receive 50 per cent discount off their course fee.
