Tynecastle Play the Game Centre!

1st November 2018

Hearts' Community Football Development Department is partnering up with Tynecastle High School and Edinburgh Active Schools to bring a brand-new Play the Game Centre to P6-S2 students on Friday afternoons.

The centre offers youngsters the opportunity to participate in games-based activity and matches from 1:00pm to 2:00pm on the Community Pitch at Tynecastle Park and Tynecastle High School (weather dependant).

A key feature of the session is to encourage young players 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 tournaments, and weekly challenges (with some great prizes on offer!).

The aim of the Play the Game Centre is 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.
