The club is delighted to be partnering up with McDonald’s and the Scottish FA to provide affordable football for 100’s of youngsters in the local community. This programme is delivered in two ways:
|At the Match||At the Club|
At the Match sessions are delivered right here at Tynecastle Park, totally free of charge.
Sessions include tournaments, races, fun challenges, free play and a variety of engaging small-sided games. These sessions take place 2pm-3pm on Fridays.
At the Club sessions are delivered in partnership with Active Schools Edinburgh.
These games based sessions take part out with curricular time at Balgreen, Craiglockhart, Dalry and Stenhouse Primary Schools
Tynecastle at the Match Centre
Our Tynecastle at the Match Centre, supported by the Scottish FA and McDonald’s, is a session for 5-12 year olds on Friday afternoons – and it’s completely FREE!
The centre offers youngsters the opportunity to participate in games–based activity and matches from 2:00 - 3:00pm on the Community Pitch at Tynecastle Park and Tynecastle High School (weather dependant).
A key feature of the session is to encourage the players themselves to lead and inspire the type of games they want to play and help them achieve greater ownership of the activities – very much like street football of the past.
Participants will have the opportunity to take part in free-play as well as small-sided festivals, and weekly challenges (with some great free gifts on offer!).
All of this combined, we hope to create a culture of football in the local area that will see more kids out playing football, and contributing towards an active, healthy lifestyle.
At the Club Sessions in partnership with Active Schools Edinburgh
Our at the Club sessions are delivered at 4 local Primary Schools, Balgreen, Craiglockhart, Dalry and Stenhouse, in partnership with Active Schools Edinburgh. These clubs offer youngsters the chance to continue to develop their skills through a variety of small-sided games, races and fun challenges.
Sessions are only available to youngsters currently attending the school at which the session takes place at. Access these sessions by pre-booking only directly through Active Schools Edinburgh.
