Youth Football

Youth Football

For players aged 13 to 19 (based on their year of birth)

For 2024 this will be children born from 2005 to 2011

The focus for this age group is to provide opportunities for players who would like more footballing activity with an environment that encompasses training and competition, while still promoting the enjoyment of the game. All Games are 11 aside.  Youth grades are mixed gender.  If your daughter prefers to play in an all-girl team during the winter season, please click here.

 

2024 Winter Season Programme

 

Please read all the information below before registering your child.

The Winter Season starts on 27th April and finishes on 14th 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 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.  Click here for further information.

 

Club Programme:

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.  Once players are allocated a team, a volunteer game day coach, referee, and manager will be required from amongst the players’ parents/caregivers. All Saturday games are coached, managed, and refereed by volunteers! The club will provide training and support for all team officials, including the offering of NZF Youth Level 1 Coaching and Community Referee Courses.

Coaching or Managing a Team

Parents, caregivers, or supporters are required as team coaches, managers & referees for our Junior club teams. All Junior Saturday games are coached, managed, and refereed by volunteers!

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 coaches or managers and once we have done that, ensuring that they are adequately prepared. Some of our coaches/managers are parents who may never have played football before. To support these dedicated volunteers, we do and will continue to run, both in-house and external coaching courses. Our Director of Football, Tsetso, is available to support and resource coaches.

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