Not all pupils will opt for sports such as rugby so at Ballyclare High we provide the opportunity for students to develop other disciplines such as football. Football coaching begins at Year 9 and in the past pupils have competed in the East Antrim Cup, Belfast Cup and the Northern Ireland Cup at junior and senior level. Pupils of all ages have had the opportunity to represent their school at district and national level.
Ballyclare High have regularly experienced success in a number of tournaments not least in becoming the Senior NI finalists. A number of our current players are also in the Irish League Premier Division and play NI schools boy football.
