Boys’ Senior Soccer

Logistics

Boys’ Senior Soccer is open to all boys from 4th to 6th Classes. It is held on Wednesdays from 2.45 p.m. to 3.45 p.m. at Wayside Celtic, running from September through to March (the Autumn and Spring terms). There is no soccer during the mid-term breaks or for the Summer (3rd) term, although occasionally there can be matches after Easter. 

It costs €80 for the two terms to cover the cost of the pitch hire, coaches and referees.

Senior Soccer may be cancelled if the weather is too bad to play, so please check the newsflash function of this website approximately one hour before the scheduled start time if this is the case. If you are car-pooling with other parents, please ensure that the children know the arrangements in the event of cancellations.

Requirements

If your son is participating in Senior 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 the designated adult is available in case your child becomes upset, hurt or injured.

Boys’ Senior 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 is collected promptly.

All children must wear appropriate footwear (no metal studs), shin pads and a named water bottle is advisable.
