If you have any questions or enquiries please don't hesitate and contact myself - tj.hansen@fcnelson.co.nz - anytime. I am happy to help!

Last but not least... a huge club like FC Nelson with over 650 members relies on it's volunteers to help run the show. Last year we've had heaps of volunteers, parents stepping up and helping out and I'd like to take the opportunity to THANK all of them, for their amazing efforts.

We are always looking for people who are keen to get involved, with coaching, managing a team or whatever comes to mind. So please don't hesitate and contact us anytime if you are interested.

Looking forward to seeing you @ FC Nelson.

Kind regards,

Tj Hansen

Further Information

All grades relate to the kids turning age (For example: My kid is currently 9 years old but turns 10 at some stage in 2019 > Please register for 10th grade)

There are exceptions to this rule, if kids are better off playing a grade above or below (Skill level, late/early birthday etc.). Dispensations can be organized by our youth coordinator Tj Hansen. So if you have any questions regarding this, please contact him after you've registered your kid in the appropriate grade. Or just add a "comment" in the comment box in your registration. Dispensations are only exceptions - FC Nelson will try to accommodate everyone to his or her preferences. However the final decision will be made by the FC Nelson and Nelson Bays Football.

(Age 7-8) Fun Football

(Age 9 - 13) 9th - 13th grade + Girls only (Junior & Intermediate)

right

It can be confusing to know which grade to register your child in. So to help the confusion, this bit of information should help you out.

    • First Kicks - children born 2012-2014
    • Fun Football - children born 2010-11
    • 9th Grade - children born 2009
    • 10th Grade - children born 2008
    • 11th Grade - children born 2007
    • 12th Grade - children born 2006
    • 13th Grade - children born 2005
    • 14th Grade - children born 2004

    Your child will be placed into a grade based on their year of birth (not their school year) i.e if your child will turn 11 this year they will play in the 11th grade.

    Those attending Grading Days will play grading games in the correct grade for their age. Any grade dispensations will be considered by the Director of Football after grading. (The final decision for dispensations lies with Nelson Bays Football).
