If a child misses or cannot attend a session for any other reason than stated above, no refunds will be given. This includes, but is not restricted to; family holidays, single absences, school exams or clashes with other activities.

Randolph Academy will automatically pause payments for payees under the following circumstances:

  • Cancellation of a session by the academy for any reasons including weather, lights, pitch issues, bank holidays or any other reason that may result in the session not being able to go ahead. 

As this is a manual process, if in the event that a payment is taken in error when it should have been paused for any of the reasons above, please email where a member of the team will refund and reverse this for you.  We thank you for your understanding in these cases. 

Except in the event of serious illness or injury, and not including cancelled sessions by the academy, the maximum amount of weekly payment pauses that can be made in a 12 month period is 6 by a single player. 

Payments may be missed from time to time which we understand can happen. In this event our automated payment system will automatically retry to collect payment.  This will continue for up to 30 days and failed collection of payment after 30 days will result in the automatic cancellation of the payment set-up by Stripe (payment provider). In this case the place of the player will be temporarily suspended until outstanding payments have been made.  If payment is not made and there has been no contact by the payee to the academy to address this within four weeks of the sessions, Randolph Academy reserves the right to cancel the players place at the academy.

Randolph Academy Seasonal Camps:

The academy runs camps in various venues all year round during school breaks & holidays.  Prices for camps will vary based on how many days a camp will be in a specific location. All payments & bookings for camps must be done online and places are subject to a first come first serve basis. Bookings can be made at 

Please note there is NO registration fee applicable to take part in the Randolph Academy camps. 

Cancellations will be accepted for camps up to 14 days before the start date and time and a full refund will be given. 

If a player decides not to continue with the camp once the camp has started, no refunds will be issued. 

In the unlikely event that the weather forces the cancellation of the full week’s activities a full refund will be issued. If  the weather causes only partial cancellation of the week, no refund will be issued.


There is no option for part payment for camps where a player can only attend a preferred number of days or times. 

Where there is a free gift or merchandise included with the camps, they will be distributed to the players at any stage throughout the week.  If in the event, that the gift is not available or there is a shortage, the player will receive this at the earliest possible time following the camp. The parents will be advised and communicated with in this event. 

Randolph Academy cannot take responsibility for the weather affecting a camp going ahead or the playing conditions.  In the event that the weather deems a pitch or facility unplayable, the coaches will supervise the players appropriately until either coaching can commence again or a decision is made to cancel the camp for the rest of the day.  In this case all parents will be called and players supervised until each child can be collected. 

We understand that sometimes parents can be delayed in picking up a child from camp. If this happens we ask that parents make immediate contact with the academy when they know they will be late, so that we can make arrangements with the coach to supervise the child until an adult is available to collect the child.  After 20 mins, a fee of €10 per 15 mins of waiting becomes applicable to cover the cost of the hourly rate of the coach whom will wait with the child.  Please note that our insurance does not cover children on site after the finish time of the camp. 


The Role of Darren Randolph in the Randolph Academy:

Darren Randolph is the owner of Randolph Academy.  As a current Goalkeeper in the Premier League and also an Irish International Goalkeeper, his schedule is controlled 100% by his club and is subject to change at the last minute at the discretion of the manager.  On signing with his professional club, he undertakes a commitment to obey and honor all club & management rules and instructions and during the season this is his contractual obligation. When on international duty, given the short amount of training time the team has together, there is no option for Darren while at home for matches to leave the confines of the team environment at any stage, 24/7 without prior permission from the manager. As much as Darren would love to be able to make decisions to attend the sessions while back in Dublin for , this is not an option

Darren has involvements in every level of both the academy & camps as follows: 


The ethos & methodology coached through The Darren Randolph Goalkeeper Academy is Darren's vision for developing goalkeepers for the demands of the modern game and with this he oversees and decides on the programs designed & executed across our Fundamentals, Development & Elite Groups in Ireland. 

Darren has helped us create a coach avatar that we adhere to when recruiting and contracting coaches on behalf of the academy to ensure standards are met. 

Although Darren’s schedule can often be non flexible, he will attend the academy at every possible opportunity. Showing up to the sessions, coaching at the venues and mentoring goalkeepers attending his academy whilst there. 


The Randolph Academy Camps run at various times throughout the year and Darren makes efforts to make an appearance where possible. Through both the playing season & pre-season this can often be difficult and we make no guarantees of Darrens attendance at camps due to changes in schedule last minute. 

Medical Consent:

All players for both the Goalkeeper Academy and the Randolph Camps must fill out an online registration form which can be accessed at  On this form there is a section for Medical Notes, and we ask that all valid information on a child's medical history or conditions be included here. By submitting this you are agreeing to your child being given medical treatment by first aid by a qualified person on site or a doctor / medical professional.  You also consent to your child being taken to hospital or a local medical centre in the event of an emergency.
