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 medal.

We require sponsorships annually for the development teams and staff in the form of soccer kits. soccer balls, refreshments, medals and shirts for referees.  The development teams do not pay entry fees either, this cost is covered by Irene Primary School.
