Summer Camps in the Bog Meadow

Football Stars Academy Camp

Summer Camp

Please see details below of 2 summer camps being run in the Bog Meadow. Please note that these camps are independent of Enniskerry FC, but are organised by one of the club’s leading luminaries, Aine O’Gorman and her team at Football Stars Academy, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to the club’s parents!

Camp # 1 = 10-14 July
Camp # 2 = 31 July – 4 August

Football Stars Academy is open to all children from 5-14 and includes introductory teaching regarding the basic skills and rules of the game, along with small sided games.

 

 

Each of the camps will cater for players of all skill levels and children will be placed in a group according to their age and ability to ensure that they get the maximum level of enjoyment, learning and coaching.

The younger groups and beginners will start with the basics – fundamental football skills, so they receive a fun, dynamic and educational introduction to playing football; while more experienced players will focus on the more technical aspects and skills of the game.

Ultimately, the most important part of Football Stars Academy is that each participant has fun, and it is with this in mind that in the afternoon sessions (after lunch), children will play small sided games and take part in mini-leagues, mini-world cups, and other fun games.

 

 

Professional footballers from the League of Ireland and the Irish Women’s national team will coach the children, lead by our very own Aine O’Gorman (above) who started her career with her hometown club Enniskerry FC.

Since then, she has played for Stella Maris, Doncaster Rovers, Peamount United and her current club UCD Waves, where she is captain and won the Continental Tyres Women’s National League Player of the Year for 2014-15. Aine has won FAI U-14, U-16, U-18 and Senior Cup medals and also the Women’s National League Cup. She has also made the National League Team of the Year for the past two seasons.

Possessing over 70 caps for the Ireland Woman’s national team, Aine has also captained her country.
