Junior Soccer

Logistics

Junior Soccer is open to all girls and boys from 1st to 3rd Classes. It takes place on a Thursday afternoon from 2.50 p.m. to 3.50 p.m. For the Autumn and Summer terms, it is held at Marlay Park’s grass football pitches (accessible from the College Road entrance). From the Hallowe’en mid-term until the Christmas holidays, Junior Soccer is played in the Leicester 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, 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 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.
