Mini-Football Club (Year 1 & 2) (Year 1 & Year 2)

A great introduction to the nation's No1 team sport

Shine runs a popular after school football club for children from St. John's School Primary School during term time. The sessions are based outdoors and provide an ideal opportunity for boys and girls with an interest in football to attend well structured, healthy and enjoyable sessions with an experienced team of qualified coaches.

We are aware of your children's staggered finish times, and your children will be collected from their class and brought to their Shine club at the end of their school day. The children will stay in their year group bubbles on site at school.

Whilst we are in COVID times, the children won't be getting changed into football kits and should take part in the club in the clothes they have come to school, so if this is school uniform please do send a pair of shin pads, long socks and trainers so they can change into them at the end of the day.

At the end of the club please collect your child from your usual school pick up point where the Shine staff will meet you to sign out. All Shine clubs finish at the same time of 4.45pm.  If you would like your child to stay at school with the After School Club after 4.45pm, please do arrange with ASC to come and collect your child from Shine.

Shine are working with your school to ensure we adhere to strict ratios and COVID-19 guidelines and procedures.
