The Saturday morning coaching classes run by the Raith Rovers Community Foundation start up again on Saturday. As always, the classes are open to all young people – aged 5 to 12 years of age. The sessions are aimed at young players who want to be coached to improve their skills, just play football and have a good time.
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) and a water bottle.
Although it is great to play on the same pitch as the Raith Rovers first team players — this does that 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 27 April and will run for 12 weeks until 29 June. The 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 12 week block is applied, making it only £35 for all twelve sessions. Equally, there is no need to book ahead – you can just turn up and play on the day.
