We hope everyone is keeping well during these strange times and looking forward to the day when we are all back training and playing games. In the meantime, the Football Association of Ireland launched a new FAI Grassroots channel with an FAI Homeskills programme as young footballers all across the country continue to remain in lockdown. The new #FAIHomeskills programme will offer coaching tips for young players. Produced in association with the Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland and FAI Schools, the tips are hosted by Ireland coaches and current & former Irish international players, including Keith Andrews, Andy Reid, Stephanie Roche, David Meyler.
The series runs daily from Monday to Friday at 11am, with FAI prizes awarded to the best online videos posted by participants.
Interim FAI Deputy CEO Niall Quinn has already produced his own social media videos to promote the new FAI Homeskills programme. “It’s very important that we offer our young players something to keep them involved with football during this lockdown and FAI Homeskills is the perfect vehicle. We are hosting the FAI Homeskills programme on our new FAI Grassroots channels and I encourage all players, parents, clubs and stakeholders to get involved. Irish football will be back on the pitch someday soon but in the meantime, this is a great opportunity for young players to work on their skills with FAI coaches.
