Important Dates for 2024

(Details to be confirmed, and all dates are subject to change.)


  • Most likely junior/youth games will start 4th May and we’ll aim to have teams worked out and coaches appointed by 6th April.

  • Note: We have renamed First Kicks to Mini-Kickers to avoid confusion with the NZF Junior Framework First Kicks definition which did not match ours.​​​​​​​
