York City Football Club Foundation is running free ‘Football Fun’ activity sessions in your area supported by Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The sessions are designed to be fun and engaging regardless of your footballing experience and are open to boys and girls aged 4-13 years of all abilities from beginner to developing player.
This is a fantastic offer for families in Tang Hall, Clifton and Acomb. The sessions are an action packed two hours that allows children to learn, play and develop in an inclusive and social environment. As part of the sessions they will also be providing water, healthy snacks and fruit to encourage positive & healthy nutrition.
In addition to the snacks available, the Foundation will also have dried goods available for families that will be able to collect at the end of each session, so please bring your bags (maximum 2 standard carrier bags per family). This will be to collect as part of a programme supporting redistribution of surplus foods from supermarket chains.
