Sports Committee

Introduction & Remit 

Greetings from the Sports Committee, a body of eight volunteer parents that works alongside the PTA in running all of the extra-curricular sports at Taney Parish Primary School.  The committee comprises a Chairperson, Treasurer and Coordinators for each sport, namely hockey and soccer at both junior (1st to 3rd Class) and senior (4th to 6th Class) levels, as well as for the Summer programme.

The role involves organising coaches, training grounds, matches, and equipment; registering interested children in the various sports; and sending out communications to parents via the Class Reps and the website.  It is generally a two-year term and the nomination/appointment process takes place at the PTA AGM in June.

At the start of the season, we request our fellow parents to help with the storage and transporting of equipment such as soccer/hockey balls and goalie kits.

You will find news and information about each sport in the subsections of this website and please feel free to contact us with any queries.
