We’re proud to see that the Shelbourne FC Youth Academy has produced many top class footballers. Not only do we love sharing our passion with younger generations, but it’s also a great feeder system for our SSE Airtricity and FAI Women’s National League teams.

The Youth Academy is a crucial element in our One Club ethos. Because of this, we have opportunities for all players ranging from our Little Reds Academy to our U19M and U17W national league teams.

Do you know somebody who would be a good fit? Or do you see yourself playing with our squad?

Little Reds Academy

Our Little Reds Academy offers a fun introduction to football and Shelbourne FC. We welcome all young talents and hope to see them develop into future Shels players! All our sessions encourage Little Reds to practice their skills (e.g. dribbling, passing, turning, receiving, shooting etc.). Above all, our coaching style focuses on valuable interactions with others and enjoying the game.

National League Teams

Our U17W FAI National League have produced numerous Republic of Ireland International’s and a terrific 2019 season. In addition, the U19 Division gives young players the chance to break into the first League of Ireland teams – Shelbourne included!
