Sports

We have a strong sporting tradition in Holy Trinity. 
Read up about the range of sports taking place in our school.

Gaelic Football

Holy Trinity has a great tradition of Gaelic football in our school. We have a girls team and a boys team who both compete in the local schools leagues.

Both teams have made it to the big finals day in Croke Park in recent years with the girls competing in 2016 and the boys competing in 2016 & 2019. We are so proud of our two football teams. 

Check out our school blog for match reviews. Thanks our wide variety of teachers/coaches for the early morning and after school training sessions.

Hurling & Camogie
Holy Trinity SNS has a great camogie team in place being helped Ms Free, Ms. O’Neill and Ms. Keating. The aim is to get as many girls playing and enjoying our native sport. We have lots of promising camogie players and we are so proud of them.

Our boys hurling team continues to put a huge effort in to the sport. We have some very talented hurlers coming through our school and even made it to the finals in Croke Park in 2016. We love to see hurling being played in Holy Trinity and can’t wait for many more days out in GAA HQ.

               

       

 

Swimming
While in Holy Trinity children get an opportunity to participate in several weeks of swimming lessons in Trinity Sports and Leisure Club. All abilities are catered for by the expert swimming teachers.
The children thoroughly enjoy this part of the PE curriculum!

I liked going swimming because it was great fun learning how to swim. I loved it! (Jack, 4th class)

         

Athletics
Every year Holy Trinity participates in the Morton Stadium athletic competitions. Schools from all over Dublin take part. Pupils have won many medals here over the years. Events include sprints, relays, 500m, long jump, shot putt and hurdles.

          

Tennis
Every year the 3rd class students get tennis coaching. This is great chance for them to learn the correct grip for holding a tennis racket and the right technique for serving and hitting the ball. It greatly improves the children’s hand eye coordination and their confidence grows as they get better and better.

                           

Boxing

Our 6th class pupils get to engage in boxing lessons as part of the Dublin City Council boxing programme. The pupils engage in a number of weeks training with IABA qualified coaches (including Olympic gold medal winner Michael Carruth) before going on to compete in the world renowned National Stadium.

             

Football/Soccer

Our pupils get to engage in football in many ways during the year. We hold our own mini football tournaments in the local astro park in which our pupils get to compete against each other. We have recently invested in a large number of goals and softballs which our pupils can play football with at yard time. We also have our annual teachers vs pupils match in which our 6th class get to take on our teachers every year with the rest of the school supporting their team.

   

Basketball

Holy Trinity is developing a great tradition in both boys and girls basketball in our school. In 2019 our basketball team had a brilliant 31-10 win in the boys basketball league finals in the National Basketball Arena.

         

Dodgeball

Holy Trinity holds an annual dodgeball tournament which all our classes get involved in. It is a day full of fun for our pupils in which they learn the rules and technique of dodgeball from our very own Ms. Keating (a former Irish international dodgeballer!).

            

Other Sports
We are always trying out new things. Over the last few years our pupils have had the opportunity to try bowling, cricket and ultimate frisbee.
