Football for All

Carrigaline United Football for All is an inclusive FAI soccer programme for girls and boys from 6-18 years. Its mission is to plan, co-ordinate, develop and deliver opportunities to participate in team sports to children and teens that may not ordinarily have the chance to do so.


The programme provides ability centric training to players with varying needs, including ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Hearing Impairment, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. By providing access to regular, professional football training and the opportunity to participate in competitions, we aim to:

- Increase activity levels, make exercise fun and establish the routine of taking regular exercise.

- Promote better co-ordination, balance, flexibility and body awareness.

- Facilitate teamwork, learn new skills and follow rules in a relaxed, safe and fun environment.

- Advocate social interaction, social skills, team spirit and developing friendships.

- Foster a sense of confidence, achievement and wellbeing among players.

- Create greater awareness and promote a culture of inclusion.


The dedication and commitment of the players, parents and coaches at Carrigaline United Football for All has been well recognised through recent award wins including the Cork School Boys League Inclusion Award 2016 and The National Inclusion Awards Best Sports Club 2016.
