Football Holiday Courses


Children can develop their football skills and techniques and participate in tournaments, matches, drills and games. The aim is to have fun with children developing at their own pace. Skills that will be taught include dribbling, passing, heading, shooting, co-ordination amongst many others. A World Cup tournament is held on the last day of each week.

If you’re looking for a great way to keep your children safe, active and in an environment that supports learning and new friendships, then our football camps are an ideal option.

Designed for children

Run by LSC, the Football holiday camps in Merseyside, Crewe, Cheshire, Leeds, and throughout Greater Manchester are held in local leisure centre facilities and schools. Led and delivered by highly experienced coaches with particular expertise in coaching children of all ages and abilities.

Fun and learning for all children

The emphasis on our holiday camps is very much on having fun. But skills development, participation and broader life skills are a close second, and no existing level of football ability is required.

Children are put into groups based upon age and ability so that they are learning with appropriate peer groups and can feel confident and supported at their level. Above all, there is a real focus on fun and enjoyment, and on making new friendships, in addition to learning new sporting skills.

A structured environment

Our football coaching courses are delivered in a structured format that mimics the school day and is broken down into smaller sessions.

Here’s what our parents think:

“My son has enjoyed training with you over the summer. He is very much enjoying his soccer training this week. He has a fantastic instructor: full of energy, full of fun and great with kids, makes them welcome, proud of themselves and encourages them all the time.”

“We will make sure we enrol my son with him again next time.”

There is a supervised lunch and regular breaks for refreshments. Children will learn football techniques and skills and will take part in practices, tournaments, games and matches, where the aim is for everyone to have fun and develop at their own pace.

Prizes and trophies can be won throughout the week, for achievements that include participation, teamwork and attitude as well as football excellence.

Suitable for all

LSC runs a number of children’s school holiday football camps in West Yorkshire, Cheshire, Manchester and Merseyside, in the summer holidays and throughout the year. The courses are suitable for children of ages 4 (already attending reception at school) to 11 years.
