Soccer

Trinity College offers a soccer program that caters for all levels of participants from Early Years to Year 12. The program aims to provide an enjoyable and competitive environment for students to develop their abilities. In recent years Trinity has sent three players to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and has had numerous players in SAPSASA, STIC and Skillaroos programs.

EARLY YEARS TO YEAR 6

Beginner soccer players aged 5 to 9 participate in Miniroos programs available at various schools throughout the year. For the primary school players in Years 4 to 6 looking for more advanced training, we have a Junior School Academy Program. Also in Year 6, students can play in our SAAS soccer program.

YEAR 6 TO YEAR 12

Trials are held in Term 1 to select College teams to play in the Sports Association for Adelaide Schools (SAAS) competition against other Adelaide schools in a home/away format throughout Terms 2 and 3 for boys’ teams.

Practice is once a week and games are held on Saturday mornings, with some mid-week games held under lights for the 1st XI and 2nd XI teams. We enter the Catholic Schools competition for our girls in Years 7 to 12.

There is an academy program in Terms 1 and 4 for our talented Middle School players that prepares students for high performance and covers areas such as diet, goal setting, habit formation, sports psychology, strength and conditioning and more.

Trinity also enter several teams each year in the SSSA state knockout competitions and we also participate in an annual intercol competition with St Michael’s College.
