Online Registration & Payment

Registration is now open for the youth section via the club’s website registration page. Participants must be registered in order to attend a Sunday session. Due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to allow participants in any session without prior registration.

Registration will be open from now until Sunday, October the 11th. This is to allow for the pre-planning of group pods and to give sufficient time to notify parents/guardians of specific arrangements for each group before the first Session on October the 18th.

Please note, due to COVID restrictions, we may need to close registration before this date should we reach the maximum numbers permitted within an age group/groups. Should this occur we will notify club members and parents/guardians of youth members, via our mailing lists and social media platforms.

Please familiarise yourself with our club policies – Club COVID Policy, Code of Conduct for Parents and Code of Conduct for Players

Fees

1st Child – €125

2nd and subsequent children – €100 each

Calling Parents For Help

COVID 19 – Sport Ireland Course 

We would ask that all parents/guardians take the time to complete the two Sports Ireland COVID 19 courses https://www.sportireland.ie/covid19/course. After successfully completing the two courses, which should take no more than 30 minutes in total, we would ask that you forward your certificate to junior@clontarfhc.com. It is hugely important that we have parental volunteers to take on the roles of COVID supervisors for each group’s session. This role cannot be undertaken by anyone who is on the pitch coaching.

The role is not onerous but is vital to ensure the safe running of each session. The duties will include;

  • Arriving 15 minutes prior to the session.
  • Checking that each participant that arrives has filled in the health declaration form prior to arriving at the session.
  • Marking an attendance roll.
  • Ensure all players and coaches sanitize at the registration/sanitizing station before entering the pitch.
  • Reminding players/coaches to social distance during rest periods of sessions.
  • Reminding parents/guardians not to stand around or enter the pitch area.
  • Ensure all players/coaches sanitize at the end of the session.
  • Oversee the collection of each participant at the end of the session.

If you are willing to help out with this role can you please email junior@clontarfhc.com with your name, your child’s name and age group.

All our volunteer’s have been Garda Vetted
