Cambridge FC are seeking young players keen to participate in regional youth leagues for teams aged 12-14 in 2020.
The club invites expressions of interest from parents and caregivers with boys and girls eligible for the following teams:
- Boys’ 12th-grade J-League (for players born in 2008)
- Boys’ 13th-grade Y-League (for players born in 2007)
- Boys’ 14th-grade Y-League (for players born in 2006)
- Girls’ 14th-grade Y-League (for players born in 2006)
All teams will have qualified coaches provided by our partner, the Ricki Herbert Football Academy, ensuring players receive a high standard of support to help them develop as footballers.
Cambridge FC is seeking to enter these four competitions which bring together the best players in their age groups throughout the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.
The leagues are run by WaiBOP Football.
The 12th-grade boys’ J-League will be played on Saturdays or Sundays (WaiBOP will decide in late January), while the three other competitions are scheduled for Sundays.
The process and timetable for participation is:
Step one: register your interest (see below)
Step two: our club will hold coach assessment sessions to assist in team selection. Dates are Monday February 17, Monday February 24, Monday March 2 and Monday March 9. Cost of attendance: $30 covers all four sessions.
Step three: confirmation of team entries/formation of leagues
Step four: registration of players (March)
The season is expected to start in April.
In addition to subscriptions for club membership, participants will be asked to pay a term fee to cover the cost of qualified coaches from the RHFA.
Last season, this fee worked out at $10 per session.
The 2020 costs (subs and fees) will be advised early in 2020.
Cambridge FC’s participation in the J-League and Y-League competitions is subject to acceptance by WaiBOP Football.
Registration of an expression of interest does not guarantee selection to a team.
