Training and games

Training is held at Waitakere Turf on Monday evenings 6pm-7pm (Years 1-6 teams) and 7pm-8pm (Year 7/8 teams). Game locations for Years 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 depend on the draw but could be at any turf in Central / East / West Auckland. We usually expect to have around half our games at home at Waitakere Turf. The Year 1/2 grade play all their games at St Kents School in Remuera.

Uniforms & Equipment

The club provides children with a uniform that is to be worn for every game, and is returned at the end of the season. All children need a stick, shinguards, mouthguard and green socks. Socks can be purchased from the club for $15 and members can receive a 10% discount (use code WH1920) for any gear purchases through our partner Freedom2Play.
