The Program:

It offers an engaging and enjoyable experience for kids aged 5 to 12 years old, led by our experienced BUAFC Coaches. This time around we are offering specific girls only sessions, however, if there are enough numbers on the day, we will provide the option of being in a girls-only group.

Expect a blend of games, challenges, and tournaments designed to foster skill development and, most importantly, enjoyment. The majority of our program is conducted outdoors, ensuring ample fresh air and exercise, while our Birko coaches ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all participants.

But that’s not all!  Get ready for an extra dose of excitement! Enroll your child in our School Holiday Program, and they'll automatically enter to win incredible prizes, thanks to Livewire Super Park Birkenhead!
