More opportunities for children to get involved with SSFC activity programmes

Keen children are being given more opportunities than ever before to get involved in our exciting activity programmes led by SSFC Foundation.

As we move into the spring term, some of the Foundation’s weekly activities have been shuffled around and exciting new ones have also been introduced.

Each activity will be led by the Foundation’s qualified coaching wizards, who will deliver age appropriate games focusing on fun and enjoyment.

There has never been a better time for your child to get involved.

Here is our new activity timetable. Please get in touch by emailing for more information.


This is a new multi-sport activity session delivered by the Foundation’s Programme Delivery Lead, Nathan Kew, indoors at Westoe Crown Community Hub in South Shields.

For parents with toddlers aged between 18 months and three years, the sessions will take place on Tuesdays between 3.15pm and 4pm, with a £4 booking required.

For those in reception and nursery (aged three to five), the sessions are on Tuesdays from 5pm to 6pm, with a £4 booking.

Please book by emailing
