Sport

Students have much to gain form involvement in sport and extra-curricular activities. Sport plays an important role in the daily life of Ardscoil na Mara. Apart from the all-important health benefits, sport provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn new skills, nurture self-confidence, and maximise their physical potential. Our girls and boys compete for, and have enjoyed, successes in a range of sporting activities, in both team-based and in individual disciplines. Sports the girls and boys are involved in include:

  • Soccer

Our Soccer teams have three different age groups for both boys and girls. Under-14s, made up of first and second years, Under-16s and Senior. The teams have been very successful over the years.

  • Basketball

Ardscoil na Mara provides basketball teams for both girls and boys. Basketball is a sport that is gaining great traction among staff and students alike, the school teams have reached All Ireland finals in recent years which shows the effort the players and coaches put in.
