Hear what people are saying about Burns Soccer School!


Waringstown Primary School

"Burns Soccer School have been working with children in our Primary School from P1 – P7. The children look forward to the experience very much chiefly because the activity is fun but of course behind that we know there is a great deal of hard work, preparation and diligence on behalf of the Burns coaches and mentors.  We have every confidence that when our children are in the care of the Burns Team that they will be well looked after and carefully coached. Parental response has always been excellent giving us increased confidence in the extensive coaching programme offered.  I unreservedly endorse the work of the Burns Soccer School."

"Burns Soccer School have been working with us, the Christian Brothers' Primary School, for these last three years offering outstanding after-school coaching. I cannot speak highly enough of the different programmes they have put in place at our school. The Burns Soccer Coaches have formed excellent working relationships with staff and children in the school, all their sessions are carefully planned, age appropriate, and expertly carried out. The pupils really respond to the coaching provided, enjoying every minute. Feedback from parents has also been extremely positive. Every aspect of Burns Soccer is professional and we are delighted to continue working with them on a weekly basis."

Seaview Primary

"I am delighted to recommend Burns Soccer to other schools. I have worked alongside Aaron and Andrew to develop soccer skills for over four years in my past and present school.  They have supported children from Year 1 to develop the fundamentals of football. The coaches are well qualified and great role models to the children. They all have safeguarding training and take their responsibilities seriously.  All pupils who have attended their sessions have grown in self esteem and confidence in playing soccer. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any school."

The children have really enjoyed taking part in the wide range of extra-curricular activities, that develops not just their football skills but also teamwork.

"We were invited to attend a football competition organised by the Burns Soccer Academy in June 2013 and I was struck by the professional approach and explicit focus on developing key soccer skills. We have been working with the Burns Soccer Academy since 2013 and now have a very successful after school programme that ranges from P2-P7. The pupils really enjoy the sessions and the professional approach of the coaches is a huge part of this. This is the feeding back into the school as pupils feel more confident in their approach to school life and they are transferring their skills into their PE lessons. Aaron and Andrew have a very positive approach to the pupils and every child's contribution is valued. The Burns Soccer Academy is a fantastic example of how a sports club should be run in schools."

 MR. C Farrell,

Cumran Primary School

"We are delighted that for the last 2 years Burns Soccer School has been able to coach the children at Cumran Primary School in football skills.  The coaches are all very enthusiastic and passionate about football and this is evident in the professional approach they have in delivering the football sessions.  They have an excellent rapport with the children from year 1 to year 7 and are always willing to help out at any other school sporting event.  Their dedication and commitment to the sport is to be highly commended.  The children thoroughly enjoy their sessions with Burns Soccer School and this is reflected in the popularity of the club.  I would recommend Burns Soccer School to other primary schools."
