Youth - U16 Girls


All girls born in 2005 & 2006 are invited to attend the Girls Only U16 Player ID Sessions for selection into the Northern Rovers U16 NRFL Team. All players are to begin the trial process in their age grade, players may be asked to trial for other teams on a case by case basis by the Head of Women’s Football.  NRFL teams will play in the NRFL (Northern Region Football League) Youth with other teams playing in the local NRF (Northern Region Football) Championship competitions.

All of these teams will play their games on Saturdays and, while the majority of games will be within Auckland, may require travel up to Northland (Whangarei) or to Hamilton/Tauranga (NRFL Youth team).

  • Players in the NRFL Youth team squad will attend our Talent Development Programme (TDP). This team will have two independent qualified youth coaches for 3 x training (Monday/ Tuesday and Thursday – time and venue to be confirmed) and a game; this brings an extra cost for the coaches skills and time.The coaching fees for this time will be $950 for the 30 week season. Goalkeeper coaching for applicable players is included in this cost.
  • The NRF Championship team may have an independent qualified youth coach for 2x training and a game; this brings an extra cost for the coaches skills and time. Should the team be allocated/ want an independent qualified coach, the coaching fees for this will be $450 for the 24 week season.


Non trialled teams:
