The Day

Our holiday courses offer fun, interactive sessions aimed at 5 - 14 year olds. All courses are run by fully qualified MFC Foundation staff who all have enhanced CRB checks.

Sessions run from 9.00 - 3.30 and children are able to arrive from 8.30am.

Courses cost £12 per day, though a discount is given if the young person attends the full course (usually 4 days in total).

Winter courses are held indoors, but in the summer, outdoor clothing and footwear may be needed. It is recommended that children bring plenty to drink for the day.

Sessions are delivered at MFC Foundation’s Herlingshaw Centre, with one day at The Riverside Stadium where young people can have a look behind the scenes and take part in activities in MFC’s Award winning Generation Red Family Zone.

Boys and girls are welcome at all holiday courses and each participant will receive a certificate at the end of the course. There will be the chance to win medals and prizes and the opportunity to meet Boro players when you visit the stadium.

“The holiday courses provided by MFC Foundation are fun and engaging. The children taking part seem to really enjoy the activities and are developing their football skills too"

George Friend (Defender)
