updated 24/10/18

At Giffnock Soccer Centre we pride ourselves on coaching EVERY PLAYER who comes to us. For boys and girls who are not in one of our many teams we run our Academy every Saturday morning between 09:00 and 13:00 at Eastwood Park (beside St Ninian’s High School.)

The Academy is staffed by a team of dedicated coaches who provide boys and girls of all ability the opportunity to train and develop in a fun environment. All coaches are Disclosure checked and have completed their SFA coaching qualifications.

The Academy is managed by Nicola Hardie. Nicola is a holder of a UEFA ‘A’ Licence and also works at Rangers FC, where she is the goalkeeping coach for the Ladies Team, Nicola also works with the SFA National u15 squad.

Training times:

Age Group  Time (Saturdays)

 Super 7s  12:00 – 13:00

 The cost is £40 per instalment (four instalments per year) for P1 to P7 and S1 to S4 and includes the Giffnock SC Training Kit for all players.

All sessions take place at Eastwood Park (beside St Ninian’s High School). After the October school holidays, younger children move indoors until around Easter.

Super 7s (S1 – S4)

These are aimed at players who are not in a team and are largely focused on small sided games.

Mini Kickers (Age 3/4)

These sessions are aimed at pre-school children and are a great way to introduce children to football and also to help prepare them for school.

The cost is £25 per instalment (four instalments per year) and includes the Giffnock SC Training Kit for all players.
