Summer football and multi sports camp launched


Aire Wharfe Elite Football Centre in partnership with Ilkley Town AFC have launched new plans to begin a football and multi sports camp, now adhering to social distancing and FA Guidelines.


The camp will begin on Wednesday 22 July and run for the first 5 weeks of the summer holidays on every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and is available for children aged 6-11 on the 4G pitch at Ben Rhydding.


At £25 a day, children can experience full coaching from FA qualified coaches with a 1:5 coach to child ratio, adhering to FA guidelines and government social distancing rules.


Sam Dexter, Football Development Officer at Aire Wharfe said: “We are delighted to announce that our popular football camps will be returning through 5 weeks of the summer holidays.


“The camps will focus on football, but we will be delivering some other sports too when we can.


“Due to the current restrictions, we will be delivering the camps in line with the latest Government and FA guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone involved.


“We anticipate that demand will high and so with that in mind we may open up more days to accommodate more children, more places will become available should the guidelines relax further.”


Places within the programme are limited and are expected to be in high demand. Email awelitefootball@gmail.com to a request a booking form or further information.
