  • Inhouse teams 12 and 13th grade

This year the 13th Grade Inhouse competition will be played on a Friday night at either 6:00pm or 7:00pm so that it that doesn't conflict with AFF 12th / 13th grade leagues. The 12th grade games will be held on Saturday afternoon at Glover Park at 3:30pm

This inhouse league structure will enable AFF players to continue to play with friends in the inhouse league as well as AFF competitions. 


The first game is Saturday 6th May. The last game is Saturday Sept 2nd. We play the first Saturday of the school holidays, but not the middle or last Saturday (i.e. no game on Saturday 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. 

How

For Auckland-wide Auckland Football Federation (AFF) competition, one week you will play at home against a visiting club team and the next week you will play away at different club somewhere else in Auckland.

The season is split into two sections.  A Grading round and a Championship round.

This purpose of the grading round is to ensure teams of equal ability are playing against each other.  It starts with each club recommending a division for their teams for the grading round. The grading round will last for 7 or so games. 

If a team wins their Grading Round games by plenty (or loses by plenty), they will probably get moved to the next higher or lower grade for the subsequent Championship Round. That way, teams face good competition week in week out.

Points scored in the Grading Round don’t count in the Championship Round. The points table gets re-set to zero after the Grading Round.

Cancelations are notified on the Auckland Football Federation website.

Offside rule is played.

Teams play 9 aside on a half a pitch and up to 3 playing reserves playing 12th grade

Teams play 11 aside on a full pitch and up to 3 playing reserves playing 13th grade

For Inhouse teams 

The teams play on up to 1/2 of a normal pitch with small goals.

Games are 25 minutes each way.

Offside rule is NOT played (discretion is required should blatant offside become habitual).

The club does not tolerate dirty play or poor sports - this includes parents and supporters.

Teams play 7 a side with squads of 8 and depending on numbers possibly 9. Each team has eight to ten players and plays 7 v 7 games with rolling subs allowed throughout the game
