My daughter is really nervous and has never played football before, can she attend Fantails?
Definitely! This programme is perfect for her. We believe that football is for everyone and want to ensure that every girl has an opportunity to take part and has a great experience. Get in touch with your hub and let them know how they can best support.
Is there an equivalent boys programme?
Fantails was developed to target female participants as currently only 1 in 5 players playing football in NZ are female. We have over 400 clubs in NZ who offer NZF's Junior Framework and all of these clubs offer boys or mixed football, however only a small percentage offer a girls programme. If you have a young boy who would like to play, please contact your local federation or club to see what's on offer.
How long does a Fantails session last?
Sessions last approx 45mins.
What do you wear to a Fantails session?
Comfortable clothes she can run around in. Non-marking sneakers for the futsal court
Can she bring a friend to a Fantail's session?
Absolutely! All hubs welcome new girls to participate and will offer free sessions for new players.
Who runs the Fantails sessions?
All sessions are delivered by our super-friendly, NZF-qualified coaches. The welfare of your daughter is key, so we ensure that all Fantails coaches are fully trained in health and safety, safeguarding and more.
