Football - Year 8

year8Football practice for year 8 takes place on Monday afternoons for approximately one hour.  The session usually entails passing drills, dribbling skills and shooting practice. Then there is usually a practice match.

Year 8 football runs from the first term only, eg. September to December. During the Winter months the practice goes indoors.   They are entered into the Coleraine and Districts league and this usually means playing 4 to 5 matches to qualify for the Final. Cookstown High school have a fine tradition in this competition and are presently holders of the Coleraine and District Cup in Year 8.
