The Ballincollig AFC Academy caters for both boys and girls aged between 5 and 10 years of age, and is proudly sponsored by the Reel Picture Cinema.

The Academy is run under the F.A.I Kickstart 1 + 2 programs, which help to teach the children the basics of soccer through fun drills and small sided games.All coaches are fully qualified through the FAI.  During April and May the Academy participates in the the Cork Schoolboys League’s Non Competitive Leagues for the Under 7s age group and upwards.

New members, both players and coaches, are welcome to join at any time. With the growing number of children joining the Academy every year, we would always benefit with the help of extra coaches at the training sessions also for anyone interested in coming on board as a coach we will set you up with a FAI Kick Start 1+2 Coaching Course if needed and will refund you in the price of the course.
