Junior Football

Junior Football

Junior Football is for children aged 9 to 12

For 2024 this will be children born from 2012 to 2015

With a focus on fun, enjoyment, and development, the Junior grades are an exciting time for FC Twenty 11 players. They start playing inter-club games; playing at our home grounds or away. All junior players will receive fair playing time during training and games, allowing all players fair opportunities during play.

Grades 9 & 10 play 7-a-side football. Games are 50 minutes in duration (2 x 25 minutes).

Grades 11 & 12 play 9-a-side football. Games are 60 minutes in duration (2 x 30 minutes).

All Junior grades are mixed-gender. If your daughter prefers to play in an all-girls team during the winter season, please click here.

 

1.   2024 Winter Season

Registrations for Winter Season Football have closed.   
Having said that, there MAY be some spots left on some teams.  So if you are interested in playing, please contact our Director of Football – Tsetso – on 021 202 1082

 

Please read all the information below before registering your child.

The Winter Season started on the 27th April and finishes mid September.

Players are placed into teams and play against other clubs in the Mainland Junior Football competition.

FC Twenty 11 provides two different pathways for our members:

Club Programme: This programme is aimed at children who wish to play for FUN with friends and/or wish to train once a week in addition to the Saturday game day.

Development Programme: This programme is aimed at children who are committed to training twice a week with qualified coaches in addition to the Saturday game day.  This costs more than Club Football. For more information on our FC Development Programme click here


Club Programme

The Club Programme is aimed at players who wish to play with their friends and enjoy the social aspects of the game. In this programme our players train once a week and have a game day on a Saturday morning.

Players may request to play in the same team with their friends if that can. Where we can accommodate this, we will.

 

Coaching or Managing a Team

The teams in the Club Programme will be led by volunteer coaches, managers, and referees – typically from amongst the players’ parents/caregivers.

FC Twenty 11 has been going through a sustained period of growth over the last few years. The biggest strain that this puts on us is in the area of finding enough volunteer coaches and/or managers.

Some of our previous coaches/managers were parents who had never have played football before!

To support these dedicated volunteers we run in-house training, and our Director of Football, Tsetso, is available to support coaches and provide resources as requested.

If you are interested, we would even support you through the NZF Youth Level 1 Coaching and Community Referee Courses.

If you are a parent or past player who has flirted with the idea of coaching or managing a team – please give it a try! It is a truly rewarding experience.

 

Subscriptions

The Winter Season is $250.

Uniform: FC apparel is compulsory for ALL players and can be purchased from our kiosk at Avonhead Park (with limited hours) or via our online shop

Football boots: Boots (no metal studs) and shin pads are mandatory for ALL players. These can be purchased through local sports stores.

Tournaments: If attending a tournament there will be additional costs associated with these.
