Saints Soccer Club – Celebrating 40 years
Affectionately known as Saints, we are a not-for-profit, community based junior soccer club located at the home of junior soccer in Cairns – Endeavour Park. Saints is proud of its culture, built on being a “family friendly” club. We believe that junior sport should be safe, enjoyable, inclusive and maximise individual participation. We believe that positive experiences in junior competition will contribute to children delivering a lifelong love of sport.
Saints caters for boys and girls from under 6’s to under 17’s. Our Under 6 to under 11 age group participate under “Small Sided Football” rules, where we focus on enjoyment and freedom of expression. Teams are not graded on skill and coaching is delivered to ensure equal playing time for all, making new friends, and always providing a safe environment.
Saints also has a formal partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities which sees our club donate $5 per registered child to the charity as well as running an annual raffle with proceeds going to the Ronald McDonald Family Retreat in Palm Cove. Over the past three years Saints has raised close to $10,000 for this great cause.
