2019 Season

2019 could be a watershed season for our Girls and Women's Programme as we finally make a full connection between our Junior/Youth pathway and our Women's First Team and Reserves.  This is exciting from many angles and we hope it's the catalyst for an exciting headline act for our Girls/Women's Pathway.

Keep up to date on things throughout the year by following us on our dedicated girls pages on Facebook and Instagram


Trials will be held in February 2019. See the calendar for trial dates for girls.

We encourage all girls to attend trials to help us get numbers and teams right. Trials will be overseen by a group of assessors
Go to the
trials page for more information.


  • Players Under 7-9's, girls can choose to play in either an all girls team or in a mixed team of girls and boys. Teams in the Under 10's competitions and above play in Auckland-wide competitions. For most grades, there will be grading games at the start of the season.  Based on their results, teams are put into their divisions for a championship competition. Teams in the Under 7-9's will play in the Ellerslie in-house competition.
  • The Coaching Director and coaches carefully consider which competition each team plays in to optimise their development.
  • Girls play on a Saturday morning during the season, except for a couple of older grades.  The younger girls play early and playing times get progressively later for the older players.
  • Games are usually played on the first and last weekend of the school holidays, but not the middle weekend.
  • Women's teams play on Sunday - normally at 11am, although our Pathway teams sometimes play at 1pm or 3pm.
  • There are tournaments throughout the season where Ellerslie teams can play against other club teams. For managers, these are usually listed on the Auckland Football Federation website. Click here to see the tournament page.


Each team needs a coach and manager. We are always looking for keen people to fill these roles. Please let Ryan ( ) know if you are interested. This will help with planning. We are working hard to make sure we have coaches in place for our 2019 season.


We encourage our older youth and our senior women to coach younger teams and this is something that the Club and teams are very supportive of.  If you are a youth player and would like to be involved in coaching a team this year, please e-mail Julie Vidovich on

As a coach of a girls’ team, you can attend coaching courses run by Ryan, specifically for coaches of girls’ teams.

You will also get mentoring and support from Ryan. Click here on our Coach Development page to get more information.
