Holiday Courses

Albion’s award-winning Holiday Football Courses have been running since 1990, catering for thousands of children across Sussex.

Girls and boys aged 6-12 of all abilities are welcome, while specialist sessions are also held on occasion (e.g. goalkeepers, multi-skills, multi-sports courses and tournaments, girls only and mini-kickers (4-5 yrs)).

The courses are organised by Albion in the Community’s Football Development team, sometimes in association with local councils, housing organisations and other sporting organisations across Sussex.

By attending the courses, youngsters can expect to have great time, make friends, and enjoy and improve their football and general sports ability in a safe, structured but fun environment. Children are taught new skills as well as developing existing ones. They are encouraged to appreciate the benefits of teamwork and group cooperation, and to develop their self-confidence.
