CSA are recruiting for the coming season and with squads for age groups from U-9 to U-16 there are opportunities for everyone boys and girls. The links we have forged with Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur and Scottish First Division side Falkirk FC has seen the academies profile grow vastly over the past couple of seasons.

Over 110 players avail of regular academy standard coaching and the recently hosted Tottenham Hotspur Soccer School in Ballinamore has resulted in a lot of interest being shown by the Spurs coaches in a number of players who attended the five day event. These players along with a select group will travel to London at the end of the season to participate in the Hotspur Cup where the Tottenham scouts will be in attendance.

The Academy conduct regular coaching sessions in Mohill and Ballinamore and will soon be holding coaching sessions in areas near you. We have development squads playing in the Longford and District School Boys/Girls Soccer League and with our structure of Development we cater for all abilities.

The Academy is not a club so players who join are not restricted to just playing for the Academy. Players can train with the Academy and continue to play for their own club if they so wish.

We will soon be looking to recruit new coaches, if you are interested email us with your details or call the Academy to discuss this most rewarding position. Potential coaches must be over 16 years old.

CSA run a number of programme including Mini-Kickers a soccer based activity programme for 2 to 5 year olds, Soccer School for six to nine year olds where the emphasis is on fun. The Junior Academy is for 10 to 13 years olds, the Youth Academy for 14 year olds plus while CSA also has its own Goalkeeper Academy with coaching sessions for all age groups being held regularly every week with Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Levels.

We are also available for club sessions, so if you would like us to run regular sessions at your club please contact us. Note: the goalkeeper coaching is available for soccer and GAA clubs.
