Weekend Football for Youngsters

25th May 2021

The Academy Play the Game Centre is open to kids aged 3-12 years of age and is based indoors at the Hearts Football Academy at Oriam.

  • Fridays: 3:45pm – 4:45pm (5-12 years)
  • Saturdays: 9:00am – 10:00am (5-12 years)
  • Sundays: 9:00am – 10:00am (3-12 years, including 3-5 years Tynie Kickers) & 10:15am - 11:15am (5-12 years)

The Centre is suitable for kids just starting out in the game or those already playing regular football. Sessions are designed to be child and player-centered so they have opportunities to make their own decisions and have exposure to problem-solving on the pitch.

Using a combination of games, fun activities, challenges, races, and finishing activities, our environment aims to provide a platform where kids will love playing the game!
