Come and join VICTA for a kick about as we team up with the Football Association and our friends at the Royal National College for the Blind in Hereford to have a go at Visually Impaired Football at the home of the England Blind Football team!

Beginning with learning the basics of B1 (Blind) and B2/3 (Partially Sighted) football, you’ll have a chance to learn how to play VI football, in a safe fun environment from the best coaches in the country.

There will be two sessions during the day. The first session will run from 10am to 1pm and is for 7 to 11 years. The second session will run from 2pm to 5pm and is for 12 to 16 years. 

Both sessions will join together for lunch from 1pm to 2pm and during this break some of the footballers from the England Partially Sighted and Blind Football teams will be around to meet you!

Please note, this activity has been postponed and we will update the information once a new date has been confirmed.
