Workload & player welfare

Player welfare is crucial to us. While we want to develop and improve all players footballing abilities, we also want to see them do it in a healthy way, in a safe and age-appropriate environment. 

We understand that football at this age is not the only sport most kids play, we have therefore put together some guidelines for parents to make it easier to understand how much sport kids should do at their respective age. 


 Within our School of Football, we follow guidelines provided by NZ Football and the Junior framework. 

We are happy to answer any questions you might have in regard to player welfare. 

All coaches will run warm-up & cool-down drills to help keep our players healthy.

Skill Centre
Our two Skill Centre groups are open to all players club or not club related. 

We offer one additional training session for all participants for $55 per term. 

The core of the program is to develop football skills under the guidance of qualified FCN football coaches in a safe and fun environment. 

The FCN Skill Centre is aligned with our Development groups and follows the same football curriculum.
