Young people in S1 who are part of our School of Football initiative had a great day at the national stadium Hampden in Glasgow yesterday. Our young people were accompanied by Arthur Jack, our Community & Youth Coach who is based at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Participants in the programme follow an enhanced timetable during S1, S2 and S3 at Charleston Academy to allow one unit of football to be delivered every day. Pupils are extracted from some subjects to facilitate this and get one unit less of PE during the week.
Throughout the programme, players have the opportunity to be identified by senior clubs involved in the Scottish FA Youth Initiative programme.
