Our Club welcomed 120 teams from all over Ontario and Quebec to the Gaels Cup Girls Tournament and Festival on the weekend of July 6-7. The 29th edition of this popular competition took place at five locations around the city under some hot unsettled weather on Saturday and a beautiful Sunday. The event has been re-branded as an acknowledgement of the partnership our Club has entered into with Queen's University through the Junior Gaels Soccer Program.
Thank you to all of the teams for some great soccer and displaying fine sportsmanship. We also wish to thank our hard working volunteers without whom we could not run a successful event. See the official program. Next up is the Boys Gaels Cup Tournament and Festival on the weekend of July 20/21.

The Kingston Clippers Soccer Club and Queen's Athletics & Recreation are pleased to announce the launch of Junior Gaels brand and apparel partnership.
The partnership will see all Kingston Clippers house-league and competitive league uniforms and apparel rebranded with Junior Gaels starting in 2019. Queen's Athletics will utilize its apparel and equipment partnership with T. Litzen and Nike to support the Junior Gaels brand. In addition to the new look, the largest soccer tournament in Eastern Ontario – will be renamed from the "Ambassador Cup" to the "Gaels Cup".
"Based on our shared values, we are pleased to announce an expansion of our partnership with Queen's University. Previously, Queen's University has partnered with our club to support our men's and women's Premier/League One soccer teams. This includes sharing facilities, staff and administration resources through a clear, long-term partnership agreement. We are pleased to expand this partnership to provide greater support to our grassroots and recreational programs and promote active family living opportunities in our community with the Junior Gaels program," said Sean O'Brien, President, Kingston Clippers Soccer Club.
"This is the first announcement of a number of exciting Junior Gaels partners for us. We have developed the Junior Gaels concept, with a simple goal in mind – inspiring youth Kingston athletes to attend Queen's, and one day play for Queen's. Connecting our current student-athletes in a new way with the local community allows them to act as mentors to all the young athletes in Kingston. I hope this gives our young athletes in Kingston a sense of being part of something bigger. If a young girl through this Junior Gaels partnership realizes she can continue her athletic pursuits at the University or College level – then we will have succeeded!" said Jeff Downie, Director, Business Development and Operations.
All participants in the Junior Gaels program will receive benefits like:
The new Junior Gaels brand and uniforms will launch in 2019.

The Kingston Clippers 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.
