U14 & U16

In 2024 we will complete our NZF Female Talent Development Programme (TDP) accreditation, enabling our teams to complete in the NRFL Youth Leagues. Until then, we are working with WaiBOP Football, NRFL and NZF on interim leagues for our teams to compete in. Achieving this accreditation is acknowledgement from NZ Football that we have met strict criteria both on and off the field. Our coaches have to achieve qualifications, and we're proud to have the largest pool of qualified coaches in the Bay of Plenty available for our members. 

Designed to cater to different phases of development for girls aged between 13-16 years, our players will be challenged appropriately by training with and playing against players of similar ability. This helps accelerate player development as players will be required to operate at a standard that involves a higher level of performance across all four corners of player development (technical, physical, psychological and social).

Teams train within our NZF accredited TDP and play in leagues focusing on development. Players within these programmes have significant game day options available and have the opportunity to move across teams.
