It’s that time of year again as our youth academy for U6-U10s kicks off this Saturday afternoon. Running from 2:15pm - 3:15pm each week, it is a fun filled hour of football for beginners, improvers and all those dreaming of playing for Sligo Rovers.
It’s also the beginning for many families of their association with Strand Celtic - a club founded in 1972 and flourishing since then in our fantastic facilities in the heart of the community.
It’s the people in the community who make the club what it is and we’d encourage all families to get involved with the teams and the club in whatever way they can.
In particular, we need parents to get involved with their children’s team by volunteering to help with coaching. It may seem daunting for those who haven’t coached before but training is provided and support is there from our existing coaches, led by our Academy Director Jorge Correia who will be there on Saturday to answer any questions you may have.
