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. 

Registration will be open from now until Friday 9th September. 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 sessions (Friday 16th, Sunday 18th and Monday 19th September).

Please note, 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. There will be a waiting list opened. If you have any queries you can contact junior@clontarfhc.com.

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
  • Ensuring all players and coaches sanitise at the registration/sanitising 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 sanitise 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.
