Technical Skills Academy – Update

September 18, 2013
Filed under News

We where both extremely pleased and encouraged by the response to the start of year two at the Technical Skills Academy. We had kids from Armagh, Portadown, Lurgan, Banbridge, Dungannon and Craigavon. We still have spaces available but would like to stress the importance of getting in early to avoid missing out. The three coaches on Sunday where all UEFA B level and one has started the UEFA A Licence.

Some parents have expressed an interest in staying on for a second hour for another session and this is something we will look at in due course.

Regarding our Annual Trips to pro clubs in England we plan to now run these every year at Halloween during the school holidays. Obviously it is too close timing wise to organise now for Halloween. However we will be looking at a trip around March or April 2014. Please keep an eye out on our website for more information. These trips are open to Technical Skills Academy players only and are on a first come first serve basis. Typically, due to limited spaces, we operate on a one child 1 parent ratio. Please note that the Technical Skills Academy is open to all players of all abilities and from all clubs etc.

We would like to thank everyone who attended week one and hope to see you all, plus more, back at week two.
