The Academy – Sunday Mornings
Every Sunday morning between 11am and 12pm we hold an hour of football for children between the ages of 4 and 9 years of age. The children enjoy themselves and learn the very basics of the game. Our aim is to foster teamwork and skill and to make every minute fun.
Tangerine Tots – Wednesdays
5.00pm to 6.00pm (Children between the ages of 4-5 –Eva’s Group)
6.00pm to 7.00pm (Children between the ages of 7-9 – Brian’s Group)
F.A.I. qualified coaches in attendance

We believe at this age children should not be concerned about winning or losing. This puts restraints on their use of skill as the fear of making a mistake and being the cause of losing is at the front of their minds. We try to get them to use the simple basic skills we show them no matter where they get the ball in our small sided games.
If you want to get your child started in football join a soccer club in Waterford or just want to get them some exercise in a good atmosphere and the fresh air, take them along to our grounds. You are more than welcome to stay and watch if you like. We do our practice on an Astro Turf surface so runners are required and during the winter plenty of warm clothing.
