These courses are ideal for kids between 5-12 years of age who like to play outfield whether as a defender, midfielder, striker, or all three! Games, goals, defending, and attacking - it's all here!

Sessions are suitable for young players of all abilities including those just starting out in the game and those who already play regular football.

We acknowledge that kids are also on holiday while attending these sessions so we endeavour to create a balance between coaching and allowing players to experience exciting and fun games-based activities and challenges that add to their time off school. We aim to make the courses as accessible as possible for families and young people.

All players will receive a limited-time offer of 15% off all non-sale items in-store and online at Heart Direct, as well as a gift and certificate. This is exclusive to those who attend our Play the Game Courses and Centres.

Comments from previous holiday courses:

"My boys 11 and 7 love the courses. They love how everyone knows them each time they return and how they feel part of the Hearts Football Club. The coaches are so professional and most importantly friendly and fun and get the kids really engaged with the experience. The club offers great value for money and sometimes some great free hearts merchandise and even tickets for a match. My boys feel safe and cared for and I feel confident leaving them in the coaches care. The most important thing for me is how much my boys enjoy it and that is the biggest testament as they can be funny about going to certain things"

“I just wanted to email you to thank you and all the coaches for the sessions my son attended last week. All the coaches were fantastic and brilliant with the kids. He had a great time although was extremely disappointed we had to go home early and made him miss the last two days. He already is at me to book him in for next summer. “

"The course was brilliant and the fact there was back up for when the weather was playing up was great. I have no problems with booking and they are very flexible and helped us when we couldn’t attend the whole week. The coaches enthusiasm is fantastic and my son feels very welcome and comfortable enough so that I don’t need to stay during the sessions. Can’t rate the course highly enough"

“I just wanted to say a huge "Thank You!" to you and all the other coaches for giving Callum and Elliot such a fantastic week! They have absolutely loved it and are already asking when the Summer one will be as they are desperate to go to that too! I know that there was a huge amount of work that went into making the week so successful and I just wanted to let you know that it is much appreciated. “

"My boys were both at the course and absolutely loved it, I was really impressed with the coaches and I received daily updates regarding venue changes due to the challenging weather and lots of great pictures. Overall I feel that this is easily the best value for money course I have booked for the kids and I am happy to book future courses for the boys! Excellent work from all involved"
