Youth - U17 Mixed

PLAYER ID – U17 MIXED

All girls and boys born in 2004 & 2005  (and girls born in 2004 & 2003) are invited to attend the Mixed U17 Player ID Sessions for selection into the Northern Rovers U17 NRFL Teams.  NRFL teams will play in the NRFL (Northern Region Football League) Youth and NRF (Northern Region Football) Championship competitions.

All of these teams will play their games on Sunday mornings and, while the majority of games will be within Auckland, may require travel up to Northland 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 trainings 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. 
  • The NRF Championship team will have an independent qualified youth coach for 2x trainings and a game; this brings an extra cost for the coaches skills and time. The coaching fees for this time will be $450 for the season 26 week season.

 

Non trialled teams:

Players whose priority is to play with friends should not attend these Player ID sessions.

Games will be played in an U17 competition on Saturdays in an NRF league.  Coaches will finalise these teams once players are registered and any playing preferences have been received.

  • If you are interested in being a volunteer coach we would love to hear from you.  We will have dedicated coach support for all volunteer coaches to call on at any time.  
  • Northern Rovers will also be offering all volunteer coaches the chance to participate in the YL2 coaching course which will take place over a half a day (most likely a Saturday) in February.
