Our Football in the Community (FITC) team have received high praise from local primary schools for their coaching methods and delivery.
In recent weeks, FITC have visited Oak Tree School, Samuel Barlow School and Walesby School to teach football skills to primary school age children.
Every class at the three schools participated in free coaching sessions and our ever-popular penalty shoot-out competition.
Along with help from FITC, each school raised a fantastic amount of money for their respective school fund, which were as follows:
Oak Tree: £755.70
Samuel Barlow: £1,682.15
Following FITC’s visit, the club received letters of appreciation from two of the schools, which can be seen below:
I am writing to tell you what a great time the children at Walesby C of E Primary School had taking part in the 50/50 Penalty Shoot-Out competition. We would like to extend our thanks to the Football in the Community team for such a worthwhile experience.
When asked, the children used words such as 'awesome' and 'brilliant' to describe their enjoyment at your visit. We had several parents watching and we heard many positive comments.
We hope that the Football in the Community scheme will continue in the future and we wish to make it known what excellent ambassadors your team are.
Walesby C of E Primary School
I’m contacting you on behalf of Samuel Barlow Primary School, who would like to thank Football in the Community for their efforts and professionalism whilst working with our children.
Everyone at the school praised their skills and adaptability and the children enjoyed the experience immensely.
We look forward to working with you in the future.
