SPONSORSHIP from Central Fife Crime Prevention Panel is assisting the football for primary school youngsters and pupils in S1 and S2, being run by Beath High School Community Use and partners.

The Panel have agreed to fund the £850 for the camp, which will see children get the chance to enjoy top level coaching during their summer break.

Beath High School, in partnership with Active Schools Fife, Community Use Schools, Cowdenbeath Football Club, Police Scotland and the Central Fife Crime Prevention Panel, will be holding a 'Respect' football camp at Beath High school between August 5 and 9 from 9am and 3pm.

PC Calum McDougall, School Engagement Officer at Beath High, said this week: "This exciting opportunity is for youngsters from the Cowdenbeath and surrounding area in Primary 6 to Secondary 2, to develop football skills led by UEFA and licensed coaches from Cowdenbeath FC's Community programme.

"Participants will also engage with daily workshops promoting personal and social development, resilience, self-esteem, inclusion and diversity". The workshops will be delivered by Beath High School's Positive Relationships Officer PC McDougall and will be directly related to the theme of football.

The #teamBeath ethos will be at the heart of the project throughout, encouraging teamwork and respect while promoting Cowdenbeath community values.

Added Calum: "Combining the inspiration and fun of football with learning about the world around us can only serve to help our youngsters be the best version of themselves".

The initiative has been kindly supported by the Central Fife Crime Prevention Panel and Fife Council and Panel chair Dave Roy said: "This is a really good project which gives youngsters the chance to sharpen their football talent and at the same time learn a lot of other important lifeskills.

"We are delighted to be able to help the project go ahead in August."
