  • The coaches, especially Karl, has worked closely with our teaching staff to ensure that pupils are developing their skills. Our teachers have been offered first class support and are more confident in their own practice of teaching PE.

FITC            

Walking Football - Tiptree (9) July - August

£40.00

Thurstable School, 03/07/2017 To 21/08/2017

Walking Football is a variant of Association Football aimed at keeping males and females aged over 50 actively involved in football, targeting the basic elements of a match by slowing the game down to a more leisurely pace.
Though based on Association Football, there are a few differences in the rules. As the name suggests, running is not permitted in this format of the game, and any instances will result in a free-kick. This restriction, together with a ban on slide tackles, significantly reduces the likelihood of injuries, therefore enhancing cardiovascular fitness whilst placing little stress on the body.

This session takes place on Mondays between 6pm and 7pm.

“I’m very excited to be working with Colchester United’s FITC programme. I was impressed to hear that they’re working in over 50 schools and I know the players are looking forward to meeting many of those children this season!”
