Quinton Fortune Academy

The Quinton Fortune Holiday Academy is open to all children aged 6-13yrs to provide football activities for young boys and girls. We run sessions on a weekly basis from Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5pm at a cost of £65 per week per child.

The Holiday Academy is not based on just improving players abilities by running coaching sessions, but to also provide a fun and safe playing environment to practice their skills.

Children are divided into groups based on age and ability at the start of the week and allocated in to teams. The week comprises of a league competition, skills sessions, penalty shoot outs, crossbar challenges and player of the week events. In poor weather, the sports hall/club house is available to use for indoor activities.

All participants receive a certificate at the presentation on the final day, as well as medals for particular winners eg: player of the week, most improved player etc.

Safety is of paramount importance to us which is why all our coaches are FA qualified and have attended child safety training.

We have two Holiday Clubs running this summer. Monday 29th July – Friday 2nd August at Wright Robinson College, Gorton, M18 8RL and Monday 5th August - Friday 9th August at KD Sports Pendlebury, M27 4FG. The week’s cost is £65.00.
