AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust run popular Soccer School sessions every School Holidays throughout the year, with the support of sponsors CMP Print.
The Soccer Schools take place across Bournemouth, Purbeck and Blandford and are aimed at both boys and girls aged 4-14 years old. All sessions are targeted at children of any ability and include a fun warm up, with some skill games, penalty competitions and small-sided matches.
Our most popular sessions include full day courses, which run from 10.00am until 3.00pm and are aimed at children aged 7-14 years old, whereas our shorter courses, which run from 10.00am-3.00pm are aimed at children aged 4,5 and 6 years old.
All sessions cost between £4.00 and £10.00 per day, and selected discounts can be applied where relevant. We offer all Junior Cherries a 10% discount on any full day course, whilst siblings booked onto the same full day course will also receive a £2.00 discount.
All AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust Soccer Schools are run and delivered by qualified and experienced football coaches, who have all completed up-to-date safeguarding and emergency aid qualifications. All staff are also DBS checked.
The Community Sports Trust will never cancel a Soccer School, and will always be at the scheduled venue regardless of the weather. We do ask that all children bring a packed lunch and snacks for throughout the day, and of course plenty to drink. Furthermore, please ensure that children wear suitable clothing, and bring along with them anything weather proof, along with suitable footwear.
When it comes to booking your place on any of these courses, it is not completely necessary. We do allow walk-ins on the day, and will never turn anyone away.
However if you do wish to pre-book, you can do so by emailing your child’s name, an emergency contact number and the course you would like to attend to [email protected], alternatively you can also call the Community Office on 01202 726342.
Finally, you can book and pay for you place on any session using the Official Soccer Schools Website. Booking on this website closes at 5.00pm the night before any course, but this does not always mean the course is full.
