K-Park Training Academy
The facility hosts a full size 11 a-side 3G pitch and a 7 a-side cage. K-Park Training Academy is aimed at promoting health, fitness and participation in sport and we wish it to be actively and predominantly used by local youth football clubs for development of their players.
Third Generation pitches - or 3G pitches as they are known - represent a new development in synthetic turf. Thanks to the mix of quartz sand and rubber granules layered into the pitch (which provide effective protection and added shock absorption), the risk of injury is reduced greatly and players will benefit from better ball control. The floodlights and all-weather capabilities of the pitch will make it ideal for rugby training but it can also be used for competitive football matches, and meets with FA and UEFA standards.
K-Park Training Academy has been established for the benefit of the community of East Kilbride by the East Kilbride Community Trust. We feel it is vitally important for there to be a mutual sense of respect between everyone using the facility and any inappropriate behavior including physical or verbal abuse of youths, coaches, match officials or others will be dealt with by the management who are authorised to expel anyone failing to comply with these requirements.
