Book now for BCFC Summer Soccer Schools
By Mark Tanner
The Bath City FC Community Sports Foundation are running their summer soccer schools again this year and places are filling up fast.
The Summer Soccer Schools will be running on Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd July at Hayesfield Upper School on the all weather surface. Coaching comes from semi professional footballers from the local area with Conference experience, alongside female coaches from the Universities.
At the Easter Soccer Schools numbers were high and they already have 25 children booked on for the summer. The Foundation are expecting it to be over subscribed this time with the cost at just £15 for both days. Paper application forms are available from Twerton Park or you can reserve a place by emailing Peter Sellwood – firstname.lastname@example.org
At the recent Easter Soccer Club we had an equal balance of two male and two female coaches working with the groups. It was a joy to watch highly talented young women footballers demonstrating to big lads how to disposess a forward of the ball without giving away a free kick. Likewise they demonstrated how a forward might get round a defender and score a goal. After being ‘nutmegged’, not once, but on numerous occasions, by the women the boys took great interest in the skills they were being taught. Hopefully, all who attended the soccer clubs, left with a clear understanding that soccer is a game of skill played equally well by both boys and girls. – http://www.bathcityfcfoundation.co.uk/clubs
