All girls born in 2006-07 are invited to attend the Player ID Sessions for selection into the WSAFC U16 Academy Team.  The Western Springs Academy team will play in the NRFL (Northern Region Football League) Youth competition.

They will play their games on Saturdays 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 New Zealand Football accredited Talent Development Programme (TDP) and have an independent qualified youth coach for 3x trainings (Monday/Tuesday/Thursday) and a game (Saturday); this brings an extra cost for the coaches skills, time and regulatory costs (linked to the requirements of playing in the NRFL Youth competition) of $250 per term.

Players whose priority is to play with friends (or stay in the same teams as in 2021) do not need to attend (but may do so) these Player ID sessions but  instead will be placed in teams by their grade coordinator and play in an U16 competition on Saturdays in an NRF league.  Game will kick off between 11:00-1:00 either at one of our home fields or away at other clubs around Auckland.  Grade coordinators will finalise these teams once players are registered and any playing preferences have been received.
