Juvenile Coaches: 

We are encouraging parents / budding coaches to please get in contact with us if you are able to help out with coaching our juvenile teams. One particular age group that currently needs more coaches is the U6 boys. We have many fantastic coaches, whom we wish to thank for their time and commitment to training.

However due to work commitments, family commitments and various other reasons, some coaches cannot make it every week. If you can help out in our already very structured and organised coaching sessions, be it either on a regular basis or part time basis, please make contact with our coaching officer Ian Twiss on +353 (87) 252 1053. You will most certainly get great pride and enjoyment in seeing our little footballer’s progress.
