For over 25 years soccer has been a popular and successful co-curricular sport at Blackfriars.
Blackfriars offers a specialised program for students in Years 5-10. The program is run by Mr Ernie Luongo, Adelaide City National Soccer League player, State League Championship winning coach and Blackfriars Priory School old scholar.
All students in Years 5 and 6 participate in the program comprising of 2 lessons per week during Semester 1.
In Years 7-10 the program is offered as an elective to students who have an interest and demonstrated ability in Soccer. Students are expected to place school soccer as a priority over club soccer and where more than 20 students choose the elective program, selection will be on merit. The elective program comprises of 3 lessons per week and offered during Semester 2.
