What happens after registration:

Once registered you'll receive email updates about group training starting, info evenings and season draws once they are confirmed.

When Team Allocation takes place a Coach and Manager for each team will need to be found from within the parent / family group of the team. Some existing teams have returning parent coaches.

A parent's information evening or "dress rehearsal day" for U9s will be held before the season starts to go over how the Junior sector works, how to set up your field for home games etc. A "Good Sports" session may be included in this evening or scheduled for another time.

Communication:

General communication will be emailed and posted in the Junior Facebook group (Junior & Youth Facebook Group) and on the main club Facebook page

Draws can be found on the NRF website under South Auckland Junior Football. Team Coaches and Managers are responsible for checking where and when each team is playing and informing the team. Fixtures are confirmed Friday evenings so make sure there have been no changes.

Cancellations are generally communicated from NRF to club admin and posted on the NRF Facebook page as soon as a decision between NRF & the Auckland Council has been made (in the case of bad weather throughout the week). Coaches & Managers of affected teams will be emailed to share the information with their teams. This can sometimes happen as late as early Saturday morning.

If you don't hear anything, assume it's ON!

Please do not contact club admins to ask if sessions are on prior to these times as we won't know and our phones get tied up, stopping us from getting updates out.
