Girls Football 2020
Welcome to the start of another action packed Football season here at NX!
Kia ora and a special warm welcome to all our new NX Y7 female football players. This year will see another busy football schedule unfold with NX entering into several football tournaments with the culmination being the AIMS games in September. Below you will find a list of dates that outline our current schedule for 2020 so that you can begin to organise your Football calendar. Northcross expects all players and parents to represent themselves, your family, the school and the community in an exceptional manner. Please refer to our Sports Code of Conduct Form for more details on our expectations.
How does Football work at NX?
The NX Girls Football teams play in mostly one-off tournament days through Terms 2 and 3. These tournaments take place during school time. Therefore, you can continue to represent your Club team with no disruption to either team. The Girls compete as independent Y7 and Y8 teams at the North Harbour Zone Day (Term 2). Then after this tournament we select our best Y7 and Y8 Footballers to make our NX team that represents us in the rest of our fixtures through to the AIMS games in September (Term 3).
A reminder to all Players and Parents that the selection of players is very difficult given the quality and numbers of Girls wishing to play here at Northcross. A player’s position in any team will be determined by the coach of that team and where he/she feels the player best serves the TEAM. It is very important that players and parents are aware of this before making the decision to play. Please refer to and read our Sports Selection Policies on the School Website. All Girls Football teams will have a minimum of 2x trials before squads/teams are selected. At least one of these trials will be during school time and another maybe before or after school.
Teams Available to Trial for
○ Y7 Girls - Monday 25 May
○ Y8 Girls - Tuesday 26 May
Registration via Google Form can only be done by students using their NX Google account. Click here to register. Registration will close at the start of Term 2.
Important information will go up on the Daily Notices, which may include trials, training days/times and any changes. This is our main communication channel between students and staff/coaches. Please ensure you are reading these every day and entering any important info in your HW Diary.
We will also communicate via the app ‘Team Reach’. To receive notifications of postponed/cancelled training sessions and general Girls Football information you will need to download this free app. The group name is ‘NX Girls Football 2020’ and the group code is ‘GFooty2020’. Once teams are selected there will most likely be specific Team Reach groups generated for individual teams and the group codes will be shared with those players in the teams.
Here’s to another exciting season and I really look forward to catching up with you all on the sidelines at some stage throughout Terms 1-3 of 2020! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need any clarification of anything!
