Soccer Tournament

The Irene Primary Soccer tournament started in 2000. The tournament is hosted annually in the second week of May. On average, 20 schools participate in the tournament yearly. The tournament is split into two sections: Juniors and Seniors.

The Juniors are made up of the U7, U8 and U9 age groups, whilst the seniors are made up of the U10, U11 and Open age groups. The senior group plays on the Friday afternoon/evening and the junior group on Saturday morning.

The Open age group is the only competitive section. The U13 teams compete for the Irene Soccer Tournament Trophy. All other age groups are seen as friendlies and are used more to allow all schools to come together for a few hours of entertainment. Each participating player receives a participation ribbon, stating the year of participation on it.

Wild Hawk Spur has played an active role in the tournament for many years. Spur generously donate burgers to all the development teams that participate in the tournament. The development teams do not pay entry fees either, this cost is covered by Irene Primary School. The PTA of IPS also makes snack packs for those players as well. In the past, Spur has also assisted with the sponsoring of referees shirts and meals.
