Get down and support them over the weekend.
They are a young side, and most could compete again next year so they will need the Club behind them.
Junior Trials are for all players aiming to play in club A & B teams in the Christchurch Leagues (11-18th grade).
We also have Development teams in 9th (x1) & 10th grades (x2), and girls only options, playing in the Christchurch Leagues.
Players who do not wish to attend trials and are interested in more social football will be placed into teams in the lower sections of the Christchurch Leagues.
Players should aim to attend ALL THREE trials where possible, to ensure they give themselves the best opportunity to be assessed by the coaches and selectors.
Reminder: your grade = the age you are turning THIS year.
All players should report to the registration desk and get a trial number 15 MINUTES PRIOR to the trial start time.
You will then be directed to the appropriate field for your trial.
All trials are mixed gender, however we now have girls only options playing in the mixed leagues, as well as girls only teams in girls only leagues.

2015 REGISTRATIONS FOR ALL PLAYERS (Junior & Senior)
Some changes for 2015:
In 2015 NZFootball requires ALL registrations to be completed online. (see below options for those without internet access)
We have set up our registration process slightly differently to accommodate a direct link to both our database and the NZFootball database. Registering online will avoid queues on registration days. We have maintained the option to pay your registration fee online by credit card, or online bank directly to the club account 03 0674 0240799 00 with surname as reference, or drop/post cash/cheque to: WUFC Mega Sports Centre, 138 East Belt, Rangiora.
Under the new NZFootball system we cannot allocate you to a team if you have not registered and non-registered players are ineligible. Team sheets and at ground audits will be randomly performed. We support this initiative as it protects our registered and financial members.
Non-refundable registration fee
We have also introduced a $25 NON REFUNDABLE registration fee as a component to the registration process due to increasing fees and administration costs for players who register and subsequently withdraw. This is not an additional fee, but a portion of the subscription but it is NON REFUNDABLE.
Therefore for 2015 ALL members will register and pay the registration fee in order to trial or be allocated to a team.
Note: there are some agegroups that can choose which grade best suits them - Click HERE for assistance
Once players have been allocated to a team, they will be charged their subscription fee.
To view the subscriptions levels voted for by the membership at the Dec 2014 AGM - click HERE
Initially you will be asked for your email address and password. If you cannot remember your password you can ask for it to be sent to your email. The email address needs to match the one in our system so if you have changed your email address you will need to register as a new player. If you are prompted for a State please enter CA. Once you have registered in our system follow the link to register directly in the NZFootball Goalnet system. (This link will also be emailed to you too if you want to pay online first.) Click the Register to our club for the first time option. There is some basic information that needs to be entered again to confirm your details. Once you have completed the registration in Goalnet, NZFootball will be send the club confirmation so we can add you to the trial listings, or place you on the team allocation roster.
Begin your registration by clicking HERE NOW, or click on the REGISTER ONLINE tab on the main left hand menu.
If you do not have access to a computer or internet you are welcome to attend our registration days on Sunday 15th February 11-1pm Kendall Park, or Monday 16th February 6-8pm Maria Andrews Park. We will have laptops available for your to complete your registration. We will also have eftpos available for payment.

We are really keen to improve our refereeing stocks in 2015.
As such the club will pay for members to attend any of the following courses and actively referee for one of our teams or tournaments.
As well as Division One teams requiring referees, and a recommendation for all competition grade teams, we also have a number of club tournaments that members can become a part of by training as referees. This is a great and enjoyable way to be involved in some awesome events. We are keen to have a team of referees to share in this experience.
We encourage youth players to also attain refereeing qualifications as they can referee in the younger tournaments eg 9th grade festival, and Monday Twilight School competitions, as well as gaining a better understanding of the rules.
The Club Based referees qualification (Level 0) is the minimum requirement to referee junior Division One Saturday football.
We would also encourage members to gain their Level One qualification. Under the new Mainland rules all Level One referees will be "carded" and can therefore referee any club game where they are the most qualified referee (home or away). Level One referees will also be able to referee at our National Invitation tournaments at Easter, and July.
The following courses are available:
Club Based referees course - A&P Showgrounds cafe - Wednesday 18th March 6-10pm - click HERE to register
Level One referees course - ASB Football Park Thursdays March 19th & 26th, April 2nd & 9th (6.30pm 9.30pm) or
ASB Football Park Thursday June 29th, Tuesday 1st, Thursday 7th & Tuesday 9th July (6.30pm– 9.30pm)
Or there is a Level One Referees course available online - where you undertake the course online and complete by attending one evening at ASB Football Park, Tuesday April 28th (6.30pm 10.00pm)

Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury
are looking for more mentors!
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Canterbury matches children ages of 6 through to 18 with mentors in a professionally supported one-to-one relationship.
Our programme matches a volunteer Big Brother or Big Sister with a child who could benefit from a one-to-one relationship with a caring adult. Mentors and the young person they are matched with meet a few times per month, for a couple of hours each time, at places and times convenient to both. The two share similar interests, and they spend their time together engaged in activities such as kicking a ball around, watching movies, visiting the museum, cheering on a local sports team or simply hanging out.
Children who spend time with a mentor gain confidence, acquire new skills and competencies, and develop an enhanced capacity to care for others. Mentors experience a sense of discovery and enjoyment as they see a world of possibilities open up through the child’s eye.
