Football Opportunity for Girls aged 5-11

Get your boots on and join us for our Girls Only Easter Play the Game Courses, supported by DPS Group and the Scottish FA, at Hallhill 3G, Dunbar.

This course is ideal for girls 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 girls 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.

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

We aim to make the courses as accessible as possible for families and young people.

Please ensure you read and understand all Covid-19 related procedures outlined in the booking confirmation email.
