Goals Beyond Grass held their first ever Powerchair Football Holiday Camp in August 2017
The National Star College at Ullenwood provided the residential backdrop and GL1 Leisure Centre the training base.
Across the week 20 plus players took part in the training drills and competitions and the 8 residential participants formed a great bond across the week socialising, taking part in quizzes and generally having a good time.
Some of the comments from those who attended;
“We would like to say everything was fantastic from the young players to the coaches and the staff”
“It was nice to be dealing with some of the best coaches in the area”
“If you have a passion for Powerchair Football you will love the camp”
“It also gives players the chance to socialise with players which they wouldn’t normally get the chance to meet”
“Coaches were friendly, enthusiastic, helpful to fun to be around good mentors”
“It has been brilliant, the staff and coaches have been fantastic not only for organising and running the camp but also in their attitude and helpfulness.”
“I thought all the staff/coaches were very professional in their approach to players and carers”
“Hopefully this is the start of a regular event. It is important people have the opportunity to do this can not speak highly too highly of this.”
“The training was first class and they (the coaches) made it fun and enjoyable”
“It was a football camp but actually changed my daughter socially, she opened up to people, started to chat with everyone and wants to be more independent following this.”
