The Foxrock Cabinteely GAA Club Academy

Foxrock Cabinteely GAA Girl's Academy Group

Our Junior Academy (born between 2009 and 2012) and club Senior Development Academy (born 2008) recommenced at Kilbogget Park in February. We start at 9.50 a.m. and finishing around 11.15 a.m. guaranteeing a fun-filled safe environment with our fully qualified and Garda-vetted coaches. 

Our Junior Academy is an excellent introduction for beginners and we encourage parents to bring down their 4 year old's (born 2012) as we shall be pleased to get them involved too!

The Senior Academy prepares the girls over a 12 month period for semi-competitive football which now begins at the under 8 age level. Girls in this group will play mini-blitzes and friendlies, and when there are no games scheduled on the Saturday they will instead train down at the park. 

Please remember to register inside the clubhouse at 9.40 a.m. before coming out to your groups; each age group is designated a different colour bib. We aim to start the session at 10 a.m. sharp. 

Don't forget your bottle of water / soft drink, and €2 fee, and make sure you dress up warm with hat and gloves as it is still quite cold. Each week you'll find information and updates about the Academy in our relatively new Facebook Page (, as throughout the year we shall be running different types of events and training sessions. May I also remind you that you are most welcome to get involved and help each Saturday, as we are always looking for new parents to join our Academy team. 

You will be interested to know that in both 2013 and 2014 the club won the All-Ireland Féile Division 1 title, and most of these girls were graduates of our Academy!

We have refreshed our Academy booklet and this is available for download from here
