The Football Association of Ireland has launched two Grassroots Home Programmes, aimed for young players of all abilities

Created by FAI Development Officer Dean Broaders, the programme is split into two sections aimed at players aged 7 to 13, and those aged 14+.These innovative programmes are designed to assist our youngsters as they prepare to return to non-contact training in pods of 15, Government guidelines and the FAI Safer Return to Training Protocol.

The programme will serve as an ongoing asset for players and coaches, as we move towards a return to play and training for players of all levels of the game.

FAI Head of Grassroots Ger McDermott said the Grassroots Home Programmes will allow players to work closely with a football before returning to full sessions.

"As we prepare for a return to non-contact training for our U18 teams, the excellent resources Dean has developed supplement club training sessions, allowing our young players to maximise their touches on the ball in advance of a return to playing matches."
