The long established Raith Rovers coaching classes for boys and girls of primary school age are on the move. After more than ten years of successfully operating at local High School’s pitches, the coaching sessions are being welcomed to Stark’s Park.
The classes are suitable for all young people – aged 5 to 12 years of age – and are open to anyone who wants to take part. Young players who want to be coached to improve their skills, just play football and have a good time are who the sessions are aimed at.
To take part you need to bring sports gear suitable for playing outdoors on a 3G surface (a sweatshirt or light rain jacket or windproof is advisable), a packed lunch and water bottle.
Although it will be exciting to play on the same pitch as the Raith Rovers first team players — this does mean a new rule must be followed. Players can only use the pitch if they are wearing football boots with moulded rubber studs. Aluminium studs, blades and flat soled trainers will not be permitted — this rule will be strongly enforced.
The sessions will start up again on Saturday 12 January and will run for 10 weeks until 23 March. Cost will be £3.50 per session and each session will operate from 10am to 11.30am. As always, a discount for anyone signing up for the 10 week block is applied, making it only £28 for all ten sessions. No need to book ahead – you can just turn up and play on the day.
