Achieve More Scotland, a Glasgow based organisation which aims to engage young people to take part in positive activities in the community, is partnering up with Xcite West Lothian Leisure to offer a free football camp to children of West Lothian.

At Xcite Craigswood during the Easter Holiday’s, 8 -12 April, experienced sports coaches and football professionals will lead activities for those aged 5-16 years old. The young people will take part in games and training so they can learn the science behind the sport of football as well as how the body works! The coaches also aim to develop the confidence of the participants and explain the importance of playing as part of a team.

Robin Strang, Chief Executive of West Lothian Leisure said “Achieve More Scotland and Xcite West Lothian Leisure’s aim is to improve young people’s physical and mental well-being. At the football camp, the safe, structured and positive activities will help shape the young people’s focus, determination and self-esteem”.

Paul Fletcher, Depute CEO, Achieve More, said "We've been running our holiday camps around Glasgow for 10 years now and we're delighted to expand into West Lothian and into other areas around Scotland. We see first-hand the difference we make by offering free access to exercise, as well as providing food for our young people during the school holidays. We see hundreds of smiling faces every day, and we're very much looking forward to bringing this to West Lothian."

Fresh fruit will be provided throughout the day but we recommend all participants to bring a packed lunch. Booking forms are available at Xcite Craigswood, in Livingston T: 01506 237940.
