We are inviting players interested in playing U-13 Federation League football for the 2016 season to a registration / trial evening at 6:30pm on February 23, 2016, at the Matamata Domain.

Games for the Swifts U-13 team are played on Sundays during the football season so players can still play Saturday morning football for club or school. The U-13 league involves the best of the best from the Waikato/BOP region, and is the best way to further your footballing ability. The league starts on May 8 (after the April school holidays).

A few points as follows:

  • Play on a full size pitch – 11 a side.
  • 2 x 40 minute halves.

If anyone has any question or queries or can’t make the registration / trial please contact John Harris on harfam@gmail.com or 021 2775849.


More Information

We’re keen to hear from 2015 Swifts Open Grade players and new players looking to move to the club who are interested in this new challenge. We’d also love to hear from players in the greater Matamata-Piako/South Waikato region at clubs that don’t run an Under-13 team (note: if your current junior club does not field an Under-13 team you can play for them on Saturdays and the Swifts on Sundays).

The establishment of this team is an important next step in building the Matamata-Piako/South Waikato area’s youth football offering.
