WELCOME TO THE 

JUNIOR FOOTBALL SECTION

Junior Football at Parklands United is well catered for with teams from 7th to 19th grade.

We also run a very popular ans successful 'First Kicks' program for 4-6 year olds each Saturday 10.00 to 11.00am

7th & 8th grade teams play in our "Fun Football" in house sessions, run at Parklands Reserve each Saturday during the season from 11.30am to 12.30pm. Teams move through stations to learn and develop skills in General Movement, Football Co-ordination and Football Technique before engaging in a small sided game.

9th to 19th grade games are played in the Mainland Football competitions. We have mixed grade teams in most age groups playing in both "social" & "competitive" divisions. We also have a strong emphasis on girls football with a full range of girls teams (10th, 11th, 12th, 14th, 18th) 

All of the Parklands United coaches and administrators are volunteers, which means we are a genuine club not a part time business. The theme for Parklands junior football is "To Be the Best You Can Be". This applies to players, coaches, officials and supporters. We regularly provide players to Canterbury age group teams, and had a number of players selected in Federation and  National Talent Centre programmes. Coaches are encouraged to undertake NZF coaching courses with similar support given to anyone wishing to become a referee.
