2017 SPORTSDIRECT.COM FAI Summer Soccer Schools

Week long fun-filled soccer camps for 6-14 year olds!Description:

The SportsDirect.com FAI Summer Soccer School programme will enter its 21st year in 2017. Over the years, the camps have grown to become the largest programme in the Grassroots Department of the Football Association of Ireland.

The camps aim to provide children between the ages of 6 and 14 the opportunity to attend a week-long football summer camp over the holiday period. Every year boys and girls of all abilities turn out to enjoy five days of fun and football. It doesn't matter if you're just a beginner or if you have our sights set on Robbie Keane's number 10 shirt, you will have fun and learn a lot out of the Summer Soccer Schools.

Football is, ultimately, a game and at the SportsDirect.com FAI Summer Soccer Schools we believe games should be fun. While participants will learn new skills and tricks, the most important element of our camps is that they are fun and that all children enjoy them.

Our camps are fully inclusive, so if your child has a disability he/she is more than welcome. If your child requires additional assistance, no problem – we'll get a coach in to specifically ensure that your son or daughter has a fantastic experience. Every child should have access to play football, and we recognise that sometimes it's just a little extra assistance that will enable them to flourish. When you're making your booking, be sure to flag if your child's condition warrants one-to-one coaching and we'll take care of it.

We have had some famous graduates of the Summer Soccer Schools throughout the years. Shane Long, John O'Shea, Megan Campbell and Katie McCabe all attended their local Summer Soccer School as children and look at how much they've achieved in their football careers!

Our camps cater for players of all abilities and participants are grouped according to ability and age to ensure that everyone gets the most out of being on a SportsDirect.com FAI Summer Soccer School. Our camps run from 10.30am - 3pm from Monday to Friday!

Beginners will learn the fundamental football skills needed to be a player and receive a fun and dynamic introduction to playing the beautiful game. More seasoned players will focus on more technical and skill-specific training and everyone will come together in the afternoon to participate in mini-leagues and small-sided games.

Our coaching programme for the week is fully aligned to our Player Development Plan and offers young players the opportunity to maximise their learning and development in a fun and safe environment whilst doing what every young football loves to do - SCORE GOALS!
