Cork City Council And The Football Association Of Ireland Develop Soccer On The Green
The scheme was launched as due to COVID-19 many summer camps, programmes, and activities have been cancelled
This activity is aimed at young people and will be held on greens in housing estates in Cork where FAI coaches will help the boys and girls develop their soccer skills, while having fun.
The pilot session was held in Greenwood Estate in Togher yesterday, with great help from the Resident's Association.
FAI coaches Ray Claffey and Barbara O'Connell put 12 youths, all from the estate, through their paces, practicing keepy-uppies, dribbling and ball control, while all the time maintaining social distance.
Cork City Council's Sports & Sustainability Section is now working on identifying further safe and suitable locations across the city for the programme to be rolled out to.
