Junior Soccer

Junior soccer is open to all children aged from 5 -12 years. Most teams are mixed boys and girls.


Training is held at  Maungatapere School and runs for approximately one hour:

  • Little Kicks teams ages 4-8 years
  • Grade 10 team ages 9-11 years
  • Grade 12 team ages 12-13 years


Fees are set at $80 per season, with discounts for 2 or more players from the same family.

This is a lot less than the town clubs, and there is less travelling required.  Training plans are set, and are in place for your child to learn by playing. Uniforms are provided by the club, players only need boots, shin pads and socks.

Little Kicks

Three year olds can start playing in the year they are turning 4. Little Kicks generally play at Kensington Park with kick off at 8.30am on Saturday mornings with three games played. There are also a few tournaments held at Tikipunga.

The children aged 4 to 8 will benefit from the Northland Football Federation Plan of Football now is place, which means the coaching is being standardised to make sure your child learns all the base skills now.  The emphasis is on learning ball skills and maximising ball kick time.  This is achieved by small sided games, and more games played.

Grade 9 and above

Grade 9 and above usually have a home game at the Mangakahia Sports Complex and an away game elsewhere.

Soccer is great for young kids to start a team game. They will learn great base skills, improve co-ordination, fitness, be part of a team, make friends and have a great time.
