Welcome to my Franchise

Welcome to our Franchise

Welcome to our Playball Belfast family where children are motivated to want to play be active and learn essential fundamental skills for all ball sports. We are a multi-sport group that encourages all-round development through structured sports play sessions. Helping children find their feet onto the sport field is just one small part of what we do at Playball. Our primary concern is developing the whole child so that they feel confident to try new things become more independent leaving mum (2cando) or the caregiver and enjoying social time with new friends in a teacher-led environment. Our coaches are motivated, and are experts in their field working with young children and delivering excellent high quality Playball classes. We offer weekly term time classes and our very popular Playball BELFAST summer Easter and mid-term camps at Methody/Ardnavalley and Rosetta each year. We offer classes on Monday through to Saturday morning and afternoon, at various locations around Belfast and Holywood. Classes generally take place inside, and we try to move outside where possible during the summer months.

  Jay McPhee // Mobile: 07734384616
My name is Jay and I’m from Monkstown, Newtownabbey. I’m 21 years old (look closer to 14) and my background has always been football and other sports from a young age. I have been a Playball coach since September 2019 and I’ve loved every minute since I’ve started! My dream job has always been to coach for a living. I can’t think of anything more satisfying than having a positive impact on a child during the time they spend in my classes. I hope that follows through and helps them outside of Playball as well. My favourite skill to coach has to be a football run and kick. It’s crazy how accurate someone can be when I become the target to aim at! Every child and parent seems to know about my trademarked “backflip” by now! But I hope one day I can learn to do a real backflip and my classes won’t laugh at my version!

Hi Everyone, My name is Lexi and I am 23 years old and am from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States! I came to Belfast in August 2019 through a program called Sport Changes Life which allowed me to play basketball and work within the Belfast youth community. I also attended Ulster University and got my Masters in Sports, Coaching and Performance. I have an undergrad degree in Health Care Management, a Masters Certificate in Business Analytics and a certificate in Leadership all through Rider University. While studying at Rider University I played Division I basketball and earning all conference honors my senior year. I am very excited to be a Playball coach and have this opportunity to work with children in a sport setting! I have coached numerous basketball teams and I believe my background in sports will help reach your child’s athletic levels at a young age! I coach the Watch Me Play classes and have a blast! I am a very bubbly, friendly, and fun person who loves to teach and help others! Hopefully I will see you in the Playball classes!

Hi everybody, I am coach Abbie! I am 21 years old. I have only just recently become a playball coach and I absolutely love it!☺️ I have a huge passion when it comes to working with children. I come from a performing arts background and attended and studied at drama schools. This experience has provided me with more confidence and skills which I have carried with me and will stay with me for the rest of my life. My aim with playball is to give children the exact same experience with sport, learning and most importantly having fun!!! My most favourite thing in my classes is watching a child start their first class when their initial reaction is sometimes to be shy but each minute going forward they really come out of their shell and get stuck in with the fun!!! I really can’t wait for summer camp this year as it will be my first camp with playball and of course for classes to return to normal☺️
