Game Day Information


Commencing Friday 3rd May 2024 and finishing Friday 6th September 2024.

No play for all in-house teams on 31 May / 1 June (King’s Birthday), 12/13 July (School Holidays), or 20/21 July (School Holidays)

Unfortunately due to low numbers we will not be offering in-house games for 13th Grade Girls this season. Players can either attend Development/Academy training and be selected for an NRF team, or also have the option of entering a social team through the club into an NRF social competition.

13th Grade Boys Teams will play one 40-minute game with two 20-minute halves on Friday evenings at Ngahue Reserve.

  • Game kicks off at approximately 6pm or 7pm depending on the number of teams in competition

Games are played on 1/3 of a field, with silver goals and a size 4 ball.

Each team has approximately 7 members and are allocated by the grade coordinators. Team requests can be made on your registration form, but please be aware that you may not always get your requested team.

Please refer to the 13th Grade Rules  for game day etiquette.


Each in-house team requires volunteers for coach and manager, with other parents rostered to set up and take down the goals. We encourage teams to organise their own training sessions throughout the week to prepare for game day.

All parents/spectators (excluding coach) are expected to stay outside of the lines of the full-size field during games to avoid damage to the grounds.


Players taking part in the ESAFC Academy or Development Programmes are selected into NRF teams each season. These teams compete against other clubs in a relevant NRF (Northern Region Football) Competition.

Players can be selected for these teams whilst also continuing with their in-house games, or may decide to only play in their NRF team.

Youth teams play at differing days and time depending on a number of factors; these are listed below
