First Kicks (5th & 6th Grade)

Information for the First Kicks 2018 season.

First Kicks is the soccer programme for our youngest players (5th and 6th Grades) and is for both boys and girls.

Team Placement                                                  

All team placement requests that have been entered at registration will be considered and catered for the best we can as we assemble teams.

Once players are put into teams, changes are only made under exceptional circumstances. Please ensure in addition to any friend preferences, you advise on your registration form which school your child does/will attend.

Team Muster: Pukete Primary School

Saturday 7th April 2018 at 10:00 am

All individuals need to attend the muster as club shirts will be handed out to individual players at Team Muster this year. (Shirts are only issued to those who have paid, as our club policy is no payment no play). Team kit bags will also be handed out at this time as well. 

Please note you will need to provide your child with boots, shin pads, socks and shorts (in the club colours), which are available through “The Soccer Shop”, and some other retailers.

First games of the season                                     

Saturday 5th May at Discovery Park Flagstaff.

Almost all Saturday game days for the First Kicks season are at Discovery Park

  • 6th grade at 9:00 am for 1 hour.
  • 5th grade at 10:00 am for 1 hour.  

Training Night for the Teams                                   

  • Thursdays nights, 4:30 pm to 5:15 pm at Discovery Park.
  • Starting on Thursday 3rd May.

The majority of teams train at Discovery Park. Training this year will be on the same night for all teams which makes for a greater atmosphere and allows for volunteer coaches to seek advice or help each other out.

A training programme will be explained at the first training night where each team will be allocated a training ground, which they will call ‘home training ground’ for the rest of the season. 

Cancellations                                                                    

If training is cancelled due to weather this will be posted on Facebook on the day and coaches emailed.

If game day is cancelled WaiBOP will email the club and coaches direct and the club posts this on Facebook.
