It won’t be long until the summer holidays are here and we have a full programme of Goalgetter courses at venues throughout Perth and Kinross during July.

Goalgetter Courses are staffed by qualified Scottish FA coaches and follow a specific programme that is all about fun, playing and improving technique.

Goalgetter Courses are suitable for boys and girls of any ability aged 5 to 16.

The cost is £5 per day and there is no need to book. Everyone who attends will receive a family ticket for a Saints home game (1 ticket per 2 day courses).

Each participant will receive a family match ticket for a Saints home game as well as full training kit.

Soccer Weeks are suitable for boys and girls of any ability aged 5 to 16.

The cost is £75 and places must be booked in advance, either on our web site or by submitting one of our registration / booking forms.

This award-winning project is aimed at helping people of all ages who would benefit from social interaction (for example, those living in isolation or with a condition such as dementia or recovering from a stroke) by reviving memories of players, matches, goals and incidents from football matches from days gone by. The sessions are FREE!

A block is underway in Crieff and will meet every Tuesday up until June 13th from 10am until 11.30am in the Strathearn Campus.

The sessions in Perth take place in the Executive Suite at McDiarmid Park also from 10.00am until 11.30am and run until Thursday 6th July. As with any proper football occasion, refreshments are served at half time!
