Irish FA Easter camps go virtual!

The Irish FA’s annual Easter camps are moving online this year! 

Covid-19 restrictions mean the camps, usually held at various locations across Northern Ireland, cannot be staged as they normally would.

So the camps, in collaboration with TopTekkers, are going virtual! This Thursday and Friday (8 & 9 April) at 10:30am, the Irish FA’s YouTube and Facebook platforms will host special coaching sessions to help kids hone their skills at home! And, it’s all completely free! 

Over the course of two days, Irish FA Foundation coaches Amanda Morton, Ben Crossley and Brendan Lynch will offer top tips on how you can improve your game. 

There will also be lots of drills to watch and take part in, courtesy of TopTekkers. The videos will help teach young footballers the technique they need to become a better players while the challenges will encourage kids to be the best that they can be.

Keith Gibson, the Irish FA’s acting Director of Football Development, said: “Our virtual camps will offer you the chance to continue to learn more about the game from home. We want to give boys and girls the opportunity to take part, have lots of fun and improve their skills.

"Thanks to TopTekkers, we're bringing our Easter camps to your house and we look forward to seeing you all on pitches throughout Northern Ireland as soon as it is safe to do so."

Parents, make sure to subscribe to the Irish FA’s YouTube channel and like Irish FA’s Facebook page so that you don’t miss out!
