Welcome to the 2022 season!

UPDATE: 29 April 2022
First Kicks, Junior and Youth registrations are now CLOSED
Senior registrations are still OPEN

How to register using Friendly Manager 

For the past several seasons, Upper Hutt City Football has used MyComet for player registration. In each of those preseasons we have had to deal with numerous queries and issues with MyComet. As a result of that, and the desire to provide a better suite of administrative tools for the club, we have made the decision as a club to move to Friendly Manager as our new registration and administration platform from 2022.

That means that all player registration for 2022 will happen using the Friendly Manager platform.

As this is our first season using Friendly Manager, all players (both new and returning) will need to get set up on Friendly Manager.
To register for the 2022 season, click on the relevant link below to register yourself or a player under 18 years of age. Fill in the indicated fields and follow the prompts through the registration form to complete registration and submit payment (where applicable).

Juniors/Youth Registrations (Ages 17 and under)

Seniors Registrations (Ages 18+)

If you are already set up on Friendly Manager and want to change your details, you can log in to your UHCF Friendly Manager profile at https://upperhuttcityfc.friendlymanager.com/login

See below for 2022 fees. Payment can be made via credit card when registering via Friendly Manager, or by bank transfer or online once the invoice is received. Please direct any registration queries to katie@upperhuttcityfootball.org.nz

Junior and Youth – 2022 season

Key dates

Capital Football has confirmed some changes to the dates for the junior football season from 2022. The key change is that all junior and most youth competitions will now start in May (at the beginning of Term Two) and finish in mid-September. That means that the junior season will start on the weekend of 7th/8th May and finish on the weekend of 10th/11th September.

There also be no games in the middle weekend of the Term 2/3 school holidays (i.e. no games on 16/17 July).

Registering for Junior and Youth football

Registrations through Friendly Manager for the 2022 season will open for most grades in February 2022 and close at the end of April 2022. Late registrations may be accepted after this date but only if there are spaces available in the appropriate grade – however this cannot be guaranteed so we recommend you get in early to avoid disappointment.

Registrations for First Kicks will open 23 March 2022.

Players will be eligible for one of our many exciting football programmes based on their year of birth. You can use the table below to work out which grade your player is eligible for or follow the links to learn more about each of the programmes.

Girls only Sunday leagues

In 2021, Upper Hutt City Football entered teams into the Capital Football Girls Only Sunday Leagues at U10, U12 and U14. This allows our junior girls the option to play girls only, or to play both mixed (on Saturdays) and Girls Only (on Sundays). For 2022, if enough players are interested we will again be looking to enter teams in these Girls Only Sunday leagues.
