JUNIOR FOOTBALL U9-U12

Junior football is for players from Grade 9 (those born in 2014) through to Grade 12 (those born in 2011).  Teams play against other clubs within the Northern Region (includes up to Warkworth &  Hibiscus Coast in the North and Kemeu & Oratia in the West and all of the North Shore) on a Saturday morning.

Kick Off times for 9-10th grade are typically 9am or 10am on Saturday morning’s. Kick Off times for 11-12th grades are typically 10am or 11am.

Teams are typically coached by parent volunteers for a mid-week training and Saturday game day. A very limited number of paid professional coaches are available as maybe required on a case by case basis.

Teams are formed by ensuring players of a similar level are grouped together to ensure the most enjoyable experience, this is done through Player ID sessions before the season starts typically these start in February. Priority is also given to keeping “friends” together at this age group.

To ensure players have access to high quality coaching to aid their development many players also attend the Phoenix Academy sessions. Phoenix trainings must be booked in addition to your player registration and are held on Mondays evenings at Becroft Park.
