    Kingston Jr Gaels Soccer

    At the Kingston Jr Gaels (also known as Kingston Clippers), our vision is to provide the people of Kingston, Ontario with access to affordable, quality soccer and fundamental movement coaching in a FUN learning environment. The Kingston Jr Gaels are a non-profit organization with over 2,000 members. We are a community sport organization that prides itself on inclusiveness.

    The opportunity to participate at every level of the player pathway is offered at our club that provides recreational programs for children as young as two years old all the way to adulthood. Our members also have the opportunity to play competitively from the age of nine onwards.  Over 50 local sponsors play a major role within our organization providing financial support for necessities such as field time, referees, uniforms, equipment, travel, and without their continued support our club would cease to exist.

    Kingston Jr Gaels Event Cancellation Policy

    Soccer is a year round sport and there are many occasions where activities are affected by inclement weather. The Kingston Jr Gaels will not cancel a scheduled event as long the facility being rented for the activity remains open.  Please review our Inclement and Extreme Weather Policy for further details.
