The Day

The Sheffield United Community Foundation holiday camps give boys and girls aged 5 to 13 the opportunity to receive qualified coaching during the school holidays.

Our camps take place at various facilities across the city and blend fun activities with structured coaching and games. Children are able to improve their techniques through a variety of activities, learn new moves and skills and most importantly, have loads of fun. It is also a chance for children to make new friends in a safe and friendly environment.

In addition we pride ourselves on promoting respect, politeness, encouragement, fairplay and teamwork.

Briefly our camps offer:

  • Coaching from FA qualified and DBSchecked staff;
  • Fun and educated practices;
  • Daily tournaments;
  • A safe and friendly environment; and
  • Structured pathways for talented players


“The Community Foundation do some fabulous work around Sheffield, engaging with so many different people week by week. I am a massive fan of the work they do, the impact they have in the city is second to none.”

Billy Sharp (Club Captain)
