Football League clubs around the country are now taking bookings for Christmas children's activities via their Official Soccer Schools website created in conjunction with The League and Beko.

Launched in October, the innovative website makes it easy for mums and dads to find and book holiday and term-time sports activities run by League clubs by visiting each team's specific part of the OfficialSoccerSchools.co.uk website.

Courses will run throughout the Christmas holiday and are all safe, fun and run by FA qualified coaches.

Official Soccer Schools Ambassador and former Charlton Athletic and West Ham United manager Alan Curbishley said: "Soccer Schools at Football League clubs provide the perfect environment for children to get their first real taste of football, hone their skills and meet new friends.

"I would encourage mums and dads to visit OfficialSoccerSchools.co.uk for details of the activities on offer to see how their kids can get involved this Christmas."

The Official Soccer Schools website is supported by domestic appliances supplier, Beko who coordinate their own 'Mum's United' campaign to assist parents by providing grassroots football tips during the football season.

There are 17 clubs taking part in the pilot of the Official Soccer Schools website and you can find out further information about those team's courses by visiting OfficialSoccerSchools.co.uk.
