PATH2PRO Soccer Academy was established in 2013 by two former Professional Footballers in order to offer additional quality coaching to players of all ages in Ireland.
Our coaches are either Current & Ex Professional players and UEFA PRO & A Licence coaches and our training sessions give players the right ingredients to reach their full potential.
Through our network of coaches, managers and scouts we can also guide players through the minefield that is professional football, if that is the route you choose to pursue.
Our aim at PATH2PRO Soccer Academy is to provide quality coaching sessions in a
professional environment in top class facilities and also offer advice & guidance to aspiring footballers.
All of our coaches are fully qualified coaches who are current or ex professional players.
Our Academy Director is ex Tottenham Hotspur player & ex Cork City Manager Neale Fenn
We cater for players aged 6 - 18 for our weekly sessions and we also provide camps during school holidays, 1 on 1 sessions and Elite Training Camps for players aged 13+
We have strong links to League Of Ireland clubs, both first team & Under age and we have also built up strong links with clubs in the UK and players from our Academy have travelled to these clubs for trials in the past
