Owls half-term Soccer Camps another success!

6 November 2014

The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme have once again had a busy week with their school holiday soccer camps with hundreds of children attending.

The Soccer Camps, which are based at Sheffield Wednesday’s training ground on Middlewood Road and also run at Retford Oaks High School, run throughout the school holidays and aim to develop play of the young footballers.

The camps, which are ran by fully qualified coaches, work to develop skills, technique and standard of play.

Owls stars Liam Palmer, Giles Coke and Glenn Loovens visited the camps to share their expertise, meet the children and conduct a question and answer session.

Gaffer Stuart Gray even took time to meet some of the kids!

Adding something different for the October half-term camps was a special ‘Freaky Friday’ Halloween themed day which saw the future Wednesday stars dress up in their best scary costumes!

Steve Taylor, Community Development Officer at Sheffield Wednesday, said: “Soccer Camps are a really good way for kids who are interested in football to get their first taste of the game.

“Unique to the camps is the chance for the young players to progress on to the development centre and we’re always on the lookout for young talent.

“The October half-term camp has been as successful as ever and we’re already looking forward to welcoming more young Wednesday stars of the future at the next camp!”
