 St Peter Chanel enters soccer teams into competition in terms 2 and 3.



No play days are 4 June (Queen's Birthday) , and 16 and 23 July. Note that a game is scheduled for 9 July, the first Sat of the school holidays.



All soccer teams are based on year of birth, not school year and games are played on Saturday mornings.


  • 5th and 6th grade  (born 2010 or 2011) play in mixed teams under a Junior Framework. SPC junior soccer is based in the cluster at Vardon Park. An hour long round of skills, drills, and games is played on Saturdays at 9am. Parents are expected to be actively involved with their children in this junior framework.



  • For grades 7th and up (born 2009 or earlier), teams play either at home (Vickery Park) or away. Away games can vary in location from Hamilton to Raglan, Morrinsville and sometimes even Te Aroha for older teams.
  • This year sees girls U8 and U10 grades. We aim to enter girls teams in these grades. Girls born in 2005 or earlier must play in mixed comp as there is no girls league for this age group.


 All players wear a supplied uniform shirt, but must provide black shorts, socks, and boots. The wearing of shinpads is compulsory for all players, regardless of age.


 The subs cost for soccer in 2016 is expected to be approximately $50.

Practice times and days will vary, and rely on coaching volunteer availability.


 Soccer does requires substantial parental support - every game requires an umpire, and every team a coach and manager. Please seriously consider attending a coaching or refereeing course - your kids will thank you for it!
