Development Centres

Contact time is an issue in Irish football. Many players only have 1 to 2 hours of training per week. 2 to 3 hours of training per week only maintains your current skill level. More than 5 hours training per week is needed for proper development.

Our coaches deliver high quality football development sessions in a positive environment and support each individual player in reaching his or her potential. The sessions are structured and customised to serve the needs of each age group and individual.
