St Francis FC has entered an educational partnership with TU Dublin Tallaght Campus Clubs & Societies (formerly IT Tallaght) to offer a pathway to third level education for their players, should they wish to continue their studies.
This programme, which is the first step for the club as they look to create strong educational pathways for their members, will allow for the institute to deliver presentations to players across various age groups numerous times per year.
The presentations will offer one-to-one guidance to male and female players on interested areas of study, whilst also granting access for members to the campus and use of facilities on offer.
In a club statement on the link, St Francis add: “This latest agreement once again ensures our members can develop to their full potential, whether that be within football, education or everyday society.
“We will continue to carry out our development plan to deliver the best facilities and supports for our members in the country.
“As part of that plan, we are nearing the opening of our state of the art 180sqm fitness gym to cater for motor skills programmes, strength and conditioning programmes and nutrition programmes for our members, which will no doubt contribute to the physical and mental wellbeing of all players.
“The club is very much looking forward to developing this relationship with TU Dublin, Tallaght Campus, even further whilst continuing to deliver benefits to the sporting community.”
