We offer football training sessions and matches to boys and girls age 7-14 years with moderate learning difficulties.
We have 2 age groups, 7-10 years and 11-14 years and hope to be able to offer a 15+years team for next season.
We have 31 children registered and have a waiting list of 10 waiting for a space.
In August 2022, we ran a very successful 3 day Summer Camp in conjunction with the Irish FA and Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.
