Waitemata aim to address the increasing cost of youth sport

5 Mar

We are excited to announce that Waitemata Football Club has decided to reduce season fees for a number of junior and youth football age groups for the 2023 winter football season. 

This decision was made by the club committee in order to make the sport more accessible to all children in the community. 

Season Fees (Per Player) for 2023

Little Leagues (4th - 6th Grade) $85

First Kicks (6th to 8th Grade) $95

Junior Football (9th to 12th Grade) $175

Youth Football (13th to 17th Grade) $195

This brings the fee structure in line with a fair and reasonable cost for participation sports and maintains the club's position as one of the most affordable and value-for-money football clubs in the region.

Waitemata Football Club understands that times have been tough for many families, and we want to do our part in making sure that every child has the opportunity to participate in a sport they love, and understand that finance and cost is often a barrier to participation,

By reducing the fees, we hope to encourage more children to join our club and experience the many benefits of playing football. Not only does it promote physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle, but it also teaches valuable life skills such as teamwork, communication, and leadership. 

Additionally, being part of a football team can boost a child's self-esteem and confidence, and provide a sense of belonging and community with our club. We believe that every child should have the chance to enjoy these benefits, regardless of their financial situation. 

We look forward to welcoming more young players and their families to Waitemata Football Club this season and invite players of all ages to the clubs Open Day on Sunday 12th March between 10am - 12pm at McLeod Park in Te Atatu South.
