Summer Football Camp (9 - 13 August, Colby AFC)
Who's the camp for?
Our camps offer children between 5 and 12 years old (at the time the camp commences) the opportunity to spend five days with fully qualified coaches, focusing on having fun whilst developing their football skills in a safe and 'Growth Mindset' geared learning environment.
We coach boys and girls together based on their skill level and motivation, rather than dividing them into same sex groups. This builds confidence, creates a mutually beneficial atmosphere, breaks down age and cultural barriers and enhances performance and enjoyment levels.
Where and when is the camp?
This camp will take place at Colby AFC pitch between the 9th August and 13th August 2021.
We're working with highly regarded coaching specialists The iCue Academy to deliver a holistic training programme that is designed to help kids enjoy the game whilst addressing key technical/tactical, social, psychological and physical areas of football. The sessions will focus on a range of skills, drills and match play as well as the basics of building up player confidence and game experience.
Attendees will be introduced to the philosophy of helping every individual bring out their best through collaboration and respect and will typically receive around five hours of development coaching per day, alongside additional sessions with FC Isle of Man's community partners during the week.
The programme has been developed in conjunction with FC Isle of Man Sporting Director and UEFA A Licence Candidate Paul Jones and iCue Academy Director/Head Coach and FA Youth Award holder Ben Qualtrough.
What time do the camps start/finish?
Camps will begin at 9am and finish at 3:30pm.
In order to assist parents, "Extra Time" options are available as a ticket add-on and will enable the child to join the coaches at 8:30am and be picked up at 4:00pm.
Please note - 'On the Day' Extra Time bookings will not be possible. Children must be booked on these 'Extra Time' sessions in advance as we keep a strict 'coach to child' ratio.
What will my child need to bring?
Appropriate kit to play football in along with food and fluids to keep them fuelled throughout the day*** - remember your child is going to be active all day!
There will be two snack breaks in addition to their lunch break and they will need to bring food and fluids appropriate for this. Water will be available from the facilities on site throughout the day.
'Extra Time' attendees will need the same as above but may also wish to have their breakfast at camp too, in which case they will need to bring this with them.
What else is included?
Each participant will receive these exclusive goodies: (to be collected at the camp)
- FC Isle of Man Camp badge
- FC Isle of Man Camp t-shirt
- FC Isle of Man Camp ECO-Friendly Activ-R water bottle
- FC Isle of Man Official Junior Supporters Club badge
Also included within every package will be:
- An attendee Digital Certificate
- A complimentary 2021/22 Season membership to the FC Isle of Man Official Junior Supporters Club, which amongst exclusive offers, events and prize draws also gives each Official Junior Supporter the opportunity to access a limited number of complimentary tickets for each home league game only*.
Is there an Early Bird discount?
Yep! Book before 11:30pm on the 18th July 2021 for discounted tickets.
This rate is heavily discounted both for first and additional children, and is our way of saying thank you for your early support.
Are multiple kid's places cheaper?
We believe that money should never be a barrier to accessing sport and understand that costs for multiple children attending camps can soon add up. As such we have put together a significantly discounted Extra Child option for children from the same household**.
Participants must be between 5 years of age and 12 years of age at the time the camp commences.
* When accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.
** This will be available as an 'add on item' and will replicate the original ticket purchased. Up to TWO additional children can attend at the reduced rate from the SAME household.
***Additional instructions will be provided at the time of checkout.
