01. Who can attend the Football Development Camp?

Boys and girls aged 6-15 years old.

As this is a football development course, we recommend that players have experience playing in grassroots football.

We also run our 'Soccer School' holiday clubs at selected venues which are a great introduction to football and small sided games.

02. How do I book SCL services? 

Our Holiday Club services are booked online using our simple, secure booking system.

03. Can I pay the club leader on the day?

We do not accept payment on the day at our clubs. All bookings are to be made online through our simple, secure booking system. This is to ensure that your child is included on our registers and that we have all the information we require.

04. Can I pay using childcare vouchers?

No, this is not a registered Ofsted site.

05. What will be the ratio of children to coaches?

For children above the age of six there will be one coach for every 12 children.

06. What training or qualifications do your staff have?

All of our staff hold DBS certificates and are first aid trained.

The leaders at every site will hold a minimum of a Level 2 Football Coaching Certificate

07. Can I get a refund if my child does/will not attend?

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds for bookings that are not fulfilled. The reason for this is that we staff our clubs based on the bookings we have received and therefore costs cannot be recouped for unfulfilled bookings.

We do however offer a flexible booking system where bookings can be made up to the day before the club.

Exceptions may be made in circumstances of illness or injury, when a doctors letter may be requested.

08. Can my child attend selected days?

Yes, we are a flexible provider and bookings can be made for one day at a time, or entire weeks at once. The choice is yours.

09. What does my child need to bring on the day?

Your child will need to bring a refillable bottle of water, a packed lunch and a couple of snacks for the mid-morning and afternoon breaks. Our camps are nut-free zones so please check that the food your child brings does not contain nuts.

10. What should they wear?

Your child should come to our clubs dressed in comfortable and sensible clothing and footwear. Trainers, football boots and shin pads are required.

Dependent on the weather, we ask that you send additional clothing such as a rain coat, jumper or sun hat to protect them from the elements!

11. What activity will my child be doing?

The programme will follow a similar format for older and younger children but sessions are adapted to be age appropriate.

12. Will food/drinks be provided?

Unfortunately we are unable to provide food at our holiday clubs, as we do not have access to kitchen facilities at our clubs. We therefore ask that your child brings a refillable bottle of water, a packed lunch and a mid-morning snack. Our camps are nut-free zones so please check that the food your child brings does not contain nuts.

13. Can we collect at any time during the day?

The club runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

You are welcome to drop off your children late and collect them early. We ask that if you are dropping off late you notify our customer service team and if you plan to collect early you notify the site leader upon drop-off. 

If you are running late to collect your child, please call our customer service team and they will notify the site leader. Please note that we reserve the right to charge a £5 fine for every 15 minutes after the designated collection time. 

Our customer service team can be contacted on 0345 644 5747 or enquiries@wearescl.co.uk.

14. How much time will the children spend outside?

We try to spend as much time outside as we can when the weather is suitable. Our clubs attempt to provide kids with some time away from screens during the holidays! In extreme hot or cold weather we are equipped to run our full programme indoors where required.

15. My children are in different age groups, can they stay together?

Due to the differing programmes for the age groups we cannot guarantee children are in the same groups.


Secure your child's place early. Our Football Development Camp has limited spaces available.
