Holiday Sports Courses

Every Easter, Summer, Christmas and Half-Term holiday, we run a wide range of fun sports activities for boys and girls throughout Sunderland, Washington, South Tyneside and County Durham.

All of our football courses run within our Player Progression Pathway, put in place to support the identification, development and progression of players with the potential and aspiration to play for Sunderland AFC’s Academy and Sunderland & Gateshead Girls Regional Talent Club.

OUR COACHES

All Foundation of Light courses are led by professional FA and Dance NCDTA qualified coaches and your children will be supervised throughout.

For all our holiday courses and sessions, please remember to:

  • Bring suitable indoor and outdoor clothing and footwear
  • Bring a packed lunch and plenty of drinks
  • Smile and have FUN!!

 

SUMMER HOLIDAY INFO

The safety of our staff, participants and families is imperative to the Foundation of Light and our summer holiday courses may look a little different this year, but will still be fun-filled and focus on the things they love.

Changes and updates to courses have been implemented to ensure guidelines are adhered to by the Government and The FA due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You must book for the duration of the course (five days for football and three days for dance) and will remain with the same group of youngsters throughout.

Safety measures have been implemented at the Beacon of Light, to make sure government guidelines are adhered to and people feel comfortable in the facility.  Please view our safety pledge for further information.

We are also offering 1:1 coaching, focusing on football specific skills.  Each session lasts 40 minutes and priced at £20.  Block booking discount is available, please contact david.dowson@foundationoflight.co.uk for availability and to book.

My son just finished a four day course with the Foundation. He's only really just started to want to have a kick about with a ball and you've made it more exciting for him. He has loved every minute. Thank you so much!

John, parent
