Who, When, Where:

P5-P7’s wanting additional team training, Tuesdays 3:30-4:30 in the Outside Sports Area at the Main School.

Full sports kits are not required but the coaches ask that players attend in trainers with a drink and shin pads for their protection, though they aren’t stopped from playing if they don’t have them.

Children are asked to come out of school changed and ready to play with their bags and coats. Children will be signed in and out at the sports area and only those going to After School Care after football will be allowed back into school.

Club Convenor: Kirsten Pennie

Club email: football-coaching@sm-pc.org

Tutor Name:  Coaching is carried out by Play2Learn

Allocation of spaces: Priority is given to returning players, there are currently spaces available and once these are filled a waiting list will be maintained

Club Convenor’s children are always given a priority place in the club. Please contact the Club Convenor should you wish to take advantage of this privilege by offering to take on this position in future.

Cost: Sessions are £5 per player, paid for on a term by term basis.

Sessions will be cancelled if adverse weather makes playing conditions unsafe.

A child’s space is not guaranteed until payment is received. All payment is due PRIOR to clubs starting. Failure to do so could result in your child not being admitted in to the club.

Cheques are to be written to SMPC, envelopes marked ‘Football Coaching Club’ & posted in the Clubs Box by the Janitor’s Office (Main School) or by Reception (Deanbank).

Parent Volunteers required: YES, parents are occasionally asked to sign players in and out at the start and end of each session

All parent volunteers must be PVG registered with the SMPC. Please contact pvg@sm-pc.org for further details if you are not already registered with South Morningside Parent Council.

Refunds: Very occasionally classes need to be cancelled (e.g. instructor sickness). SMPC policy is that refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the individual club’s discretion as offering refunds when this happens involves a lot of work for relatively small amounts of money. If, after accepting & paying for a place, your child subsequently does not take the place / drops out / changes their mind, a refund will not be given

SMPC Code of Conduct

Parents are kindly reminded that SMPC Clubs only operate thanks to a school parent who volunteers to act as Club Convenor & run the administrative side of the club. Parents are requested to respect the efforts of each Club Convenor.
