The St. James’ Juvenile Academy is a very successful school of excellence for young boys. The Academy takes place every Saturday for eight months of the year. The times are from 10:30am to 11:45 noon at Mervue National Boys School. The ages that attend the Academy are under 6-8-10 and all new players are always welcome to join and participate in Gaelic games in fun, friendly and safe enviorment. The Academy has many qualified coaches including, David Henry, Jimmy Howley, Mike Murphy, Liam Finnerty, Shauna Kerr, Stephen Diviney, Greg Connelly, Johnny Regan, Eamonn Dillion, Gary Casey, Ronan Collins, Ryan O’ Toole, Keith Murphy, Eoghan Frain and many more. During the course of the year the different ages groups participate in Go-Games. These games help all the children to develop and enhance their fundamental skills of Gaelic Football. St James’ provides an excellent G.A.A. experience for all ages and offers a knowledge and understanding regarding our cultural sport. The pride and passion of wearing the green and maroon Jersey is another important aspect to note. Galway County Star and St. James’ ace Paul Conroy emphasized that the leadership he shows on the pitch was instilled in him at St James’. Paul went on to say that every child should get a chance to play Gaelic Games and experience our great sport. He added ‘ I am looking forward to seeing all the young Jimmies at the Academy this season and helping out with coaching the different age groups’. Fun and friendship are key factors to a successful sporting organisation and St James’ continues to promote and implement this policy throughout the club; on and off the field.
