The Foundation wanted to encompass more sports than just golf. It felt natural for the Foundation to get involved in football. We currently assist two teams in different age groups playing and training under the Foundation banner.
The philosophy is to get the Kids enjoying sports and learning life skills on the way.
Russell Anderson Football Academy
The foundation has been working in conjunction with the Russell Anderson Football Academy & Player Development Academy since 2012, providing coaching sessions at Riverbank Primary School (which is based in one of the most disadvantaged areas of Aberdeen).
The project has grown rapidly in a relatively short space of time and now includes 8 schools within the St Machar ASG.
In addition to the sport & fitness elements, nutrition & hydration awareness is built in to every session. And a One Day Fun & Fitness Programme (involving all of the pupils in each school) has also been rolled-out as part of the RAFA programme.
