Donnybrook Soccer Academy caters for Boys and Girls, aged 3yrs old to 8yrs old.
At present the Academy has five Classes. Mini-Kickers-3yrs old. Big-Kickers-4yrs old. Junior-5yrs old. Senior-6yrs old and U8s-7/8yrs old.
Our Kickers & Junior sections(Toddler Soccer)has proved to be a great success with the emphasis on teaching Soccer and Fundamental Movement Skills through using fun games. Each child has his/her own ball for the duration of the class. The more touches of the ball they can have the more their skills will improve.
At the Academy we understand that the coaching of 3,4,5 year old's needs to be done in a completely different way to coaching older children.
In the Mini-Kickers Class, Parental involvement is key to its success! Parents work alongside their child to help keep them engaged during the teaching element of our sessions! It is great fun!
Our Big-Kickers and Junior Classes use the same teaching technique but without the parental involvement. We do not play Matches in the Kickers or Junior classes.
In the Senior & U7/8s classes we use a more structured but still a fun, approach to teaching soccer. Children are taught the values of soccer being a team game but are also encouraged to express their individual skills as often as possible. Children are encouraged to participate as much as possible and to the best of their ability. We play 10/15mins small sided matches in these classes and children must wear Astro runners.

The Academy is open on Sunday mornings from September to December and February to May. The Academy is closed for all School and Bank holidays.
