Bookings now open for Summer Football Camps

The five-day camps, which are part of the foundation’s grassroots development programme, will be running across Northern Ireland throughout July and August.

More than 60 camps are set to be staged in venues across the country’s 11 council areas between 4 July and 19 August.

M&S Food is now sponsoring the programme as part of its new partnership with the Irish FA and Northern Ireland’s international teams. The M&S/Irish FA ‘Eat Well, Play Well’ campaign is using the power of football to help families make healthier eating choices.

The sessions at the camps provide opportunities for boys and girls aged 5-13 to develop and improve their football skills in a fun, safe and inclusive environment with professionally trained and vetted staff.

Each year thousands of kids take part in foundation-run football camps staged during Easter, the summer holidays and Halloween.

Claire Rea from the foundation said: “Irish FA staff are looking forward to delivering more than 60 camps across the country throughout the summer holidays.

“It is important to provide children with the opportunity to get outdoors, to meet up with and make new friends, and to work on skills development. There will be plenty of fun games and activities to keep children active at the camps.”

Places at the camps - when booked online - are available at £42 for one child or £72 for two children, £92 for three children and £112 for four kids from the same family.
