Tiger Cubs Travel to Switzerland for the SCORT football camp01/08/2014
On Sunday the 3rd of August 2014, eight lucky QPR Tiger Cubs will be treated to a foreign adventure; taking part in an exciting football camp in Basel, Switzerland!
The trip will be hosted SCORT Foundation in cooperation with the Football Club Social Alliance. This is the 8th Special Youth Camp taking place in Basel and the surrounding region and will run from 3rd till 8th of August 2014. Children and young people with a learning and/or a physical disability from the cities of the participating football clubs will take part in a football training camp specifically adapted to their needs. Professional instructors of the participating football clubs will lead the trainings. Big thanks to the DSA (Down’s Syndrome Association), Global Relief Initiative and Jeremy Willson Charitable Trust for providing funding for the QPR Tiger Cubs flights.
SCORT will integrate the Young Coaches actively in the planning and implementation of the trainings and therefore further educate them. By offering joint activities for youngsters with and without a disability (e.g. integrated training sessions, integration of volunteers etc.), the integration of youth with a disability into society will be fostered. The event proved a huge success last year and a new group of players are looking forward to this year’s football camp in Basel. The participating clubs will be Football Club Social Alliance members FC Basel 1893, SV Werder Bremen, Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Queens Park Rangers FC. Additionally, Sunderland AFC will be participating as a guest. The trip will involve a number of fun events for the eight Tiger Cubs, including a number of coaching sessions led by various professional clubs, coaches and players, as well as other fun activities and a trip to visit FC Basel, St Jackob Stadium.
