Each year Ambassadors Football partners with local churches, football clubs and other organisations across the UK, to deliver Holiday Clubs aimed at playing a part in transforming communities. Please check out this video example:
Holiday Clubs provide the opportunity to work with developing footballers (usually 7-14 year olds), by giving them the chance to play and compete in a fun, safe and positive environment. This is achieved by developing techniques and skills through, technical Sessions, small-sided games and competitions.
Central to this development is an emphasis on enjoyment and fun, whilst demonstrating core sports ethics of fair play and sportsmanship.
“This has been the best week of my life!!” Child aged 10 at a Holiday Club.
The other aspect of our Holiday Clubs is being able to demonstrate a healthy role model through our FA qualified coaches to those involved. This provides us with the opportunity to highlight and develop core life skills, through coaching and teaching sessions from the Bible. Covered topics include conflict, losing & winning, putting others first and being a role model.
“Before this week I didn’t believe there was a God…now I’m starting to think there is.” Child aged 12 at a Holiday Club.
Partnerships with local churches are integral to the success of Holiday Clubs. Children who have responded to the Gospel during a Holiday Club have been able to benefit from the love and support of the local church, enabling them to grow in their faith. We have seen that as transformation occurs in the individual, it has a ripple effect on those within their circle of influence and to the wider community. Churches have also seen long-lasting meaningful contact with new families as a result of running a Holiday Club in their community.
“Many thanks to all the coaches who came during the week, it was a great success, both from a football perspective and the fact that we had about 40 people attending the service on the Sunday who we would not normally see at church, for our awards ceremony.” Holiday Club Partner Church in London
