Overview

10/11th grade has two leagues: Click here for In-House Rules

  • Club Auckland Football Federation (AFF) representative teams:

The AFF representative league is competitive, representative soccer playing all over Auckland against other AFF clubs. Trials are held at the beginning of each season to identify which players will represent the club.

Any players selected to a an AFF team must commit to two training sessions a week to play at this level.

The 10th grade AFF teams are trained by Billy Harris.

The 11th grade AFF teams are trained by Sander Waterland and Jeremie Bouvet.

In-house teams

This year the Inhouse competition will be played at a time that doesn't conflict with AFF 10/11th grade leagues. This will take place on Saturday afternoon at 1:45pm for 10th grade and 2:45pm for 11th grade either at Glover Park or Madills Farm. This will enable AFF players to continue to play with friends in the inhouse league as well as AFF competitions. Our first game will be Saturday 6th May with the last game scheduled for 2nd September 2017. This will give us a lengthy season of up to 18 games. There will be no games on the 15th / 22nd July.

2017 GRADE IDENTIFICATION/TRIALS 

Our 2017 Grade Identification/Trial process for 10th - 19th grade is in the form of the Pre Season Program.  

From these trainings, players will be put into the appropriate Academy/Rep, AFF or Metro/Conference teams.

Those players who were selected and allocated into a AFF last year need to attend the Pre Season Program as top teams will only be selected from the Pre Season Program.

Boys and Girls trials are held together by Grade.

  • Players must register online as a member if they intend to trial.
  • The purpose of the trial is to identify which players would be considered for our top teams.
  • The number of Top teams is different depending on the grade.

Please also note.

  • Each of the top teams will have team training sessions with their professional          coach WHICH IS AN ADDITIONAL COST

Attending these sessions is a commitment that is required in order to play in one of our top teams.  If you can’t commit to this then you need to urgently advise you’re Coach and we will find you an alternative team.
