The Club holds a muster each year to encourage players to register their interest with the Club. After attending a muster, players are placed in a team of 14 players, with games being 11 a-side. These teams are coached and managed by volunteers, supported by the Club.
The 17-19 yr old players are provided the opportunity to train with the Senior squad as a supporting pathway through to the Senior age groups.
Players are provided with a Club uniform for the season i.e., a maroon shirt and maroon shorts but are required to supply their own boots and socks. These uniform items can be purchased at Stirling Sport in Pukekohe.
As part of the youth competitions (run by Northern Regional Football), teams can travel across Auckland on a Saturday morning for games. The team’s home base is spread across Bledisloe Park, Field 5, Rosa Birch or the Pukekohe Showgrounds.
Times for games vary week to week but are generally between 10am and 1pm with the younger teams having the earlier start times.
Club photos are held each year as a fundraiser for the Club. Photos are taken at the Clubrooms early in the season where Pukekohe players have their photo taken with their team, coach and manager. These photos can then be purchased and are distributed at Prizegiving at the end of the season.
In the case of wet weather, the coach or manager will advise of any game cancellations.
Youth fees for 2023 are $145
