Sessions are held every week for boys and girls and trophies for all players and indoor facilities.
These courses have been specially designed to introduce children to football training and coaching in an enjoyable, no pressure environment allowing them to build their confidence and start their football journey.
All of our courses are run by qualified coaches with FAI Safeguarding. Our coaches have
completed a COVID-19 compliance course and we will be following the latest government protocol to ensure everyone is safe and enjoys the sessions.
At the end of the course every child will receive an engraved merit trophy and course certificate, with chances to win extra trophies including Penalty Shoot out, American Shoot out and Champions League Competitions.
The cost of the course is €8* per week, which is payable every five weeks (€40*) with the first payment due on week one. Parents are welcome to stay and watch however the club is fully supervised so children may be left in our care.
* Blackrock is €9 per week, which is payable every five weeks (€45*).

It’s great to see something like this in Ireland. I know myself from playing schoolboy football here that it’s way too competitive at too young an age which takes the fun and enjoyment out of it for kids. Emerald provides a friendly safe way of coaching for young children to develop as players and children. I always help Ciaran out with a couple of trophy presentations at the end of term and it was fantastic to see kids getting something back after all their hard work. I know how much planning and effort Ciaran and coaches with it being their full time job they really do make sure every child leaves a happy and improved footballer and you can tell they are a dedicated bunch.

I always try and get down to see how Ciaran and the other coaches at Emerald are getting on when I’m over in Dublin. It’s great to see coaches with such enthusiasm and energy when dealing with children nowadays. As a father myself I know the most important thing you want to see is your child enjoying themselves which these well-structured coaching sessions guarantee in abundance.

My 2 boys have been playing football with Ciarán & the lads for about 3 years now. Their confidence & skills have grown so much & to see them mix & play well with other children is brilliant as a mother. They look forward to 'Tuesday football' every week. They have also attended several summer camps with Emerald which are always fantastic fun for the boys & so well organised. Thank you Ciarán & everyone involved for all your hard work and commitment to all the kids! Keep up the good work!
My son Ollie has been going to Emerald Soccer for almost a year now and he absolutely loves it - he wakes up every Wednesday morning and asks “is it soccer day today?” He also attended their summer camp last August and it was fantastic. Both the weekly sessions and the camp are great value for money in my opinion. Ollie has cerebral palsy but he doesn’t let that stop him enjoying his “favourite sport” as he calls it. Ciarán and his team of coaches have all been amazing with him - treating him like everyone else but helping him or giving him extra encouragement when he needs it. He loves practicing his skills every week and especially playing the matches. I would highly recommend Emerald Soccer to anyone looking for a fun, safe environment for their kids to play football.
It has been five years now since my son joined Emerald Soccer Club and I couldn't be happier to see his progress since then, he has got loads of compliments and very proud to show off his skills. The coaches are professionals and truly pass the skills and techniques onto the children.
Amazing academy for both boys and girls which develops there skill set in soccer from a young age with excellent support and encouragement from enthusiastic coaches. Can highly recommend this club to all.
