Leagues and Teams 

We are a well-established youth football club offering a high standard of football coaching for approximately 250 local young people between the ages of 5 and 16.

Our players generally progress to NIFL Irish Premier League club Ballymena United and a number of Youth Academy graduates have progressed to represent the club at first-team level

Our Mini Soccer School focuses on skills development and emphasises the importance of players having fun while learning basic football skills at our training sessions on a Saturday morning at Ballymena Showgrounds. 

At these young age groups our teams also play 5, 7 and 9 a-side format against local teams in Ballymena as well as taking part in other Small Sided Games centres throughout Northern Ireland including weekly games in Ballymena, Lisburn and Coleraine every weekend.
