HCYFC Challenge Series


We’ve all been away from football for too long! But with the restart of the Bundesliga and a new pilot competition launched by the SSE Airtricity League, maybe it’s time to prepare for a return to football.

Inspired by the FAI homeskills channel (which we recommend you check out) Harold’s Cross YFC have started our own challenge series. Each week we will post our latest challenge for our members (and family members!) to try.

Make sure you follow us on social media or check out our website to stay up to date with the latest challenge.

Spot kick challenge


Our first challenge is pretty straightforward. Spot kick challenge: score as many goals from 5 spotkicks as you can. The only rule is your “spot” must be your age plus 5 steps from the goal. So if you’re 13 that’s 18 steps. Keep your goal small: 3 paces wide.


  1. Make Goal (3 paces wide)
  2. Make spot: distance from goal is your age plus 5 stepsĀ 
  3. Take 5 shots

Make it fun and challenge some one in your household maybe a parent or sibling.

Remember all mums are 21 years old.

Oldies special dispensation. We also have a special dispensation for players over the age of 50. If you are over 50 your steps are : half your age minus the number of years you have been retired. But you will need to show proof of age for this dispensation!!
