Coláiste Íde Soccer students organise a tournament for the entire college as part of their Teamwork Module.
The Soccer course not only looks at physical and technical aspects of soccer but also the theory of teamwork and the practical elements involved in a collaborative context. The Teamwork Module is one of eight modules which students have to complete as part of their QQI qualification. It looks at team dynamics to further improve their team working skills. Recently, the entire college was involved in a soccer tournament coordinated by our Soccer students!
The soccer course gives students the academic, physical, technical, tactical & psychological knowledge necessary for the demands on a student athlete, with particular emphasis on soccer coaching. In addition it offers a broad introduction to Sport, Exercise and Recreation studies, providing students with the necessary skills to take up employment at entry level in the leisure industry. Students will improve their knowledge, competence and understanding of physical fitness and sport both practically and theoretically. Graduates often progress within the College to one of our QQI/FETAC Level 6 Sport and Leisure Management courses on offer. Many past students have gained lucrative soccer scholarships in the USA.
