Rep Teams


Alongside In-House Leagues, played solely against other ESAFC members, we also select a number of Rep Teams which are chosen prior to the Term 2 Season.


Please be aware that there is an extra fee for Rep Team Training sessions as you will be trained by a paid ESAFC Coach.


Rep Players in 7th, 8th, & 9th Grades typically play up a grade in our in-house leagues. From 9th Grade, ESAFC also enters teams in to Auckland Football Federation leagues so that our more elite level players can compete at the highest available level


Alongside pre-season trials, player progress will be monitored throughout the season via a number of ESAFC Club Members and Coaching Programmes
