We have teamed up with Scottish Water – our first ever corporate supporter – to deliver an innovative primary schools project that focuses on the Water and Physical Activity. Scottish Water is a familiar national company, responsible for providing water and waste water services to household customers and wholesale Licensed Providers.
Together with Scottish Water, the SPFL Trust will be working in partnership with 3 of our professional clubs who will deliver the programme to a total of 3000 young people, and it is absolutely free!
Sessions are split into two parts and involve a 40 minute interactive classroom based session focusing on ‘The Water Cycle’ and ‘Our Bodies and Water’; followed by a 40 minute physical activity session. We have allowed ten minutes in between each session as we know it takes a few minutes to get an excited group of school children ready to take part in a sports session.
Each pupil will be given a certificate, water bottle and a voucher for a free family match ticket to a game at the respective clubs. We are really excited about this pilot as we know that water plays a vital role in keeping you properly hydrated and that young people love a visit from their local football club.
Season 14.15 delivered by East Fife FC, Elgin FC and Queen of the South FC.
Season 15.16 delivered by Greenock Morton FC, Kilmarnock FC and Queens Park FC.
