Youngsters attending Friday's Football Camp are going to get a bonus away day!
For one day only, our football fun is tranferring from the Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre to the indoor sports hall and outdoor 3G pitch facilities at Our Lady and St John Catholic College in Shadsworth, due to a regular booking already taking place at the BRIC on the same day.
The one-off change of facilities offers us a chance to try some new concepts on the day, with a different array of pitch surfaces and facilities available compared to normal. Children should still arrive with the same kit and lunch requirements as normal, but with an awareness of the different pitch types, so a change of footwear for 3G use (no studs or blades) and suitable outdoor layers, if desired, would also be welcome additions.
Should they wish, parents don't need to do anything different regarding transport locations and timings, as minibus transfers between the BRIC and OLSJ will be provided free of charge as required, but if parents are able to drop off or collect their their children directly at the venue, that option is welcomed to reduce the need to run numerous minibus shuttles.
For those who are able to travel direct to the school, please head to the sports hall entrance on arrival, which is accessed via the main car park to the left of the school as you look at it from North Road.
Any children that are booked onto our After Camp in the Darwen End from 3pm to 5pm will be covered by our minibus transfer option, meaning that parents collecting children after this activity should still collect their child from the Darwen End as normal.
The daily Activity Camp is also unaffected by these changes, with the full day taking place in the Darwen End as per the rest of the summer schedule.
