PATH2PRO Soccer Academy was established by two former Professional Footballers in 2013 who identified the lack of quality coaching & resources available for talented young players at schoolboy level in Ireland. There are plenty of decent clubs & coaches in Ireland but we feel there is not enough being done to accommodate the countless players in the country that see football as a career.
Our aim at PATH2PRO Soccer Academy is to provide quality coaching sessions in a
professional environment in top class facilities.
All of our coaches are fully qualified coaches who are current or ex professional players.
Our Academy Director is ex Tottenham Hotspur player & current Cork City manager while
our Head Coach is the current Longford Town manager Daire Doyle (Pictured Right)
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
