The Football for all programme will cater for Boys/Girls 6 -14 years with disability.
Lucan United Fc in conjunction with the FAI are proud to announce that a Football for All programme will take place for one hour on Saturdays starting at 12pm. Start date to TBA. If interested in getting child involved contact John on 0879088085.
This programme has as its central aim the delivery of football opportunities to people who may not ordinarily get a chance to play the ‘beautiful game’. Lucan are delighted to be involved in such a worthwhile programme which promotes inclusion and provides all players with the opportunity to become part of a team. We hope that by lending support to this worthy initiative, more individuals will become involved, furthering the potential for the programme to reach out to those who may benefit, not only from physical exercise but regular social interaction.
This programme now has 25 clubs nationwide to ensure the inclusion of children of all abilities in the football community in Ireland, guaranteeing that all children regardless of ability will in the future have the same opportunity to play football for their local club. Existing clubs cater for children with a variety of disabilities such as dyspraxia, autism and physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities. As well as regular training, children in football for all clubs get a chance to play for their local club in regular blitzes against other teams both regionally and nationally.
