Temple Villa was founded in 1973 and is located in Mount Temple just outside Athlone. Our senior team have a proud history and are currently competing in Division 1 of the Combined Counties League. We also provide football for underage players from U9 – U17 and also look after our up and coming U8 stars. Our underage teams compete in the Athlone & District Schoolboy/girl League and Cups, with some teams entered in the SFAI Cup and Connaught Cup.
Most of the underage coaches have undergone FAI coaching courses and today all underage teams have a coach who has been certified to at least kick start 2. The U8s are coached and encouraged to play in a fun and enjoyable environment with weekly coaching sessions together with club fun days. They are also entered into the ADSL fun league where everyone’s a winner.

The club is very serious about the safety of its players and to this end we use the “code of ethics and good practices for children in sport” in all interactions with players.
We actively encourage parents to get involved in the club as there is lots to do and something for everyone, from coaching, grounds/clubhouse maintenance, fundraising, general administration, or helping out on match day and training sessions.
The club have many loyal sponsors who take advertisements on the billboards around the main pitch. During the year we run various fundraising activities. All this goes to keeping the club running smoothly and to provide excellent facilities and equipment for our players.
We would like to have a parent from each team to assist us in communicating the news and views of parents, players and the committee to one-another.
Please contact us if you would like to liaise for your child’s team.
