Kick off for Electric Ireland Shooting Stars sessions

The Irish FA’s Electric Ireland Shooting Stars programme kicked off again this week.

Delivered by Irish FA Foundation staff, Shooting Stars runs in 15 centres across Northern Ireland providing opportunities for girls aged 4-11 to have fun, make friends and learn the fundamentals of football. 

Shooting Stars is seen as a starting point for young girls who are then encouraged to take the next step and join a local football club, helping them move along the player pathway. 

The fun-filled sessions are run weekly by qualified coaches in a safe and friendly environment with sessions available across the country with prices starting at £25 per girl, £40 for two or £55 for three.

The programme is taking places in the following areas/venues: Antrim and Newtownabbey - Antrim Forum and Valley Leisure Centre; Armagh, Banbridge, Craigavon – South Lake Leisure Centre, Craigavon; Belfast (North) – Girdwood Community Hub; Belfast – Shankill Leisure Centre; Belfast (East) – Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre; Belfast (West) – Brooke Activity Centre.
