Ceara School have their own post-primary football team. Every week the school coaches, Mr Cunningham, Dominic and Stephen, withdraw the pupils from class for one hour’s football practice. Currently 11 pupils enjoy participating. The pupils take part in different football drills, games and shooting techniques, all building towards good soccer skills, confidence and self esteem. Twice a year the team takes part in two competitions. One is the Coca-Cola Schools FA Cup in Newtownabbey and the other the Regional Games in Craigavon. Both these are sponsored by IFA (Irish Football Association) who on occasion also send in coaches to take a football session with the pupils which they thoroughly enjoy. Currently our Sponsor’s are Smurfit who provide our navy and white football kit.
