On the back of BUSC being successful in receiving funding (thanks to the support of our members for voting) our new ASD/Autism specific football programme will be launching on Thursday 31 August 2017 here at Albyn Park. The programme will run for a total of 16 weeks with every Thursday between 5pm-6.30pm.
Back in June Aidan and his colleague Ann Brown from Team United delivered a hugely successful open day at the Albyn on the back of a range of promotions for the new initiative. This proved to be hugely successful with 75% of the programme being filled on this day alone. Since then the programme has completely filled up and kids and coaches alike are all extremely excited for the new launch.
On top of this we are delighted to be able to bring in 6 of the clubs young members to take up volunteering roles as buddies to help support those who have signed up for the programme. We hope that this will allow the new intake to integrate more easily in to the club as they move forward in the new initiative. We will keep you updated with progress of the class as we go forward.
