What is it?
The programme gives players with disabilities
between the age of 6 and 14 years the opportunity
to get regular football training and competition
through a local community club in their area.
The training they will receive will be professional and
delivered by qualified FAI coaches recruited through
a network FFA coaches from partnerships developed
by the FAI with our business community.
Everybody regardless of their ability should have the opportunity to access football in their local club
ensuring the FAI promotes an ethos of inclusion within the football community. Players receiving their
training at local clubs will provide regular football, a feeling of belonging to a club, competition,
and a safe environment in which to express themselves. Most of all, players will have a pathway into
mainstream teams if they improve to a level capable of competing in mainstream competition and,
if not, they will continue to enjoy the game they love with their club.
