Summer Holiday Camps Now Taking Bookings!

BUSC are happy to reveal that we are now accepting places on our Multi Sports Summer Camps at the Albyn!

These Multi Sport camps are designed to give children with a range of abilities the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques in a safe and engaging environment. The camps will be lead by qualified BUSC staff and volunteers.

The camps focus on a range of fun games and a wide range of different sports both team based and individual. We also encourage kids to embrace the free time aspect of the camp where kids can choose what activity/game to partake in the final hour of the session.

Dates and prices for the holiday camps are as follows:

We are also hosting football camps in conjunction with Planet Soccer that we will expand upon in the near future.

For further information or to book your place, please contact Aidan at a.forbes@busc.org.uk.

Holiday Camp Details Request

Due to the recent break-in, BUSC has unfortunately lost details regarding who had signed up for our holiday camps throughout the year.

Most applicants have sent us their details and we are very grateful for that. However we are still missing a few people on our list.

If you haven't sent your details in to be added, please contact Aidan at a.forbes@busc.org.uk

Thank you for your patience.

BATTLE OF BING POSTS.jpg

BUSC is pleased to announce that we are hosting the inaugural Battle of the Bing Cross Race on Sunday 29th July!

The Albyn has spoiled us rotten over the years and we have been granted full access of its footballing ground facilities. We will have full amenities, a huge shower and changing block as well as a fully stocked café throughout the day!

The race is open to both men and women from the age of 16 onwards, so long as you are part of the age boundaries on the day of the race (29th July). The price is £22.50 per rider and there are 200 entries available.

Please note that the deadline for entries in the BOTB is Sunday 22nd July and we will NOT be accepting any entries on the day of the race itself. Due to the grass roots nature of the event, cash flow is not huge and therefore we will be UNABLE to give refunds.

As a special treat, the race format will be in two parts which mean you will receive two races for the price of one!

Children won't be ignored either, as two kids races will be held on the day and will be free to enter! Just turn up with your bike and helmet and you're good to go! Each race will be for 6-10 year olds AND 10-16 year olds.

All upcoming news will be posted on the BOTB Facebook page at www.facebook.com/events/166531807366512/

The times for the event are as follows:

Cycling.jpg

BUSC would like to remind you all of our cycling day out happening this Monday (21st May)!

Starting from the Albyn at 12pm, we plan to travel all the way to South Queensferry and if you're up for taking advantage of the great weather happening in Scotland just now, this is the perfect way to spend some time out in the sun!

The journey to South Queensferry is 7.5 miles long and should take no longer than 1 hour to get there and 1 hour to get back. We aim to be back in Broxburn for 3pm. The road is flat so please no 360 degree flips!

Once we've arrived in Queensferry we will take a break and have some snacks and ice cream.
