Junior Soccer is open to all girls and boys from 1st to 3rd Classes. It takes place on a Thursday afternoon from 2.45 p.m. to 4.00 p.m. For the Autumn and Summer terms Junior Soccer is played in the Wayside Celtic grounds, on the all-weather pitches. There is no soccer during the mid-term breaks or for the Spring (2nd) term.
Participation in Junior Soccer costs €35 per term to cover the cost of the pitch hire and coaches.
Junior Soccer may be cancelled if the weather is too bad to play - if so the Sports Committee will notify participants via class WhatsApp group. If you are car-pooling with other parents, please ensure that the children know the arrangements in the event of cancellations.
If your child is participating in Junior Soccer, you (or another designated adult) should be present for the entire session while it is taking place. Coaches cannot take children to the toilet for child protection reasons. It is also important that you or a designated adult is available in case your child becomes upset, hurt or injured.
Junior Soccer lasts for one hour – please ensure your child is supervised before and after the session as school insurance does not cover the children during these times, and that he / she is collected promptly.
All children must wear appropriate footwear (no metal studs), shin pads and a named water bottle is advisable.
