The Irish Football Association is hosting the first of its camps at Mossley from July 6-10. The camps give kids ages 5-13 the chance to develop their football skills while exercising and having fun.

But, if you can’t make it to Mossley, there’s plenty of opportunity to get involved.

Camps will be held at the University of Ulster (July 20-24), Ballyclare (August 3-7) and the Valley Leisure Centre (August 10-14).

The 2015 Summer Holiday Camps follow the success of the 2015 Easter Holiday Camps, which were hosted at various venues across Northern Ireland. 1,582 boys and girls took part in the 2015 Easter Camps, a 19% increase from 2014.

At all of the Nutty Krust Holiday Camps, the Irish FA’s football coaches give kids tips on dribbling, passing and shooting, as well as giving them encouragement and guidance to enable them to continue into a more competitive playing environment. All young players leave with a Nutty Krust goodie bag and an Adidas football.
