Talent Centre and Junior coach of the year to lead girls development at Upper Hutt City Football

Upper Hutt City Football is pleased to welcome New Zealand Football finalist and Central Federation winner, junior coach of the year 2019, Belinda Warrington as junior and youth development officer (girls).

Belinda’s enthusiasm for football development is contagious, while her coaching prowess is fine-tuned through recreational, competitive and talent development programmes. Belinda combines a passion for developing the female game with a natural ability to engage with junior and youth players. From co-ordinating First Kicks, including the delivery of a successful mini-football movers programme, to youth talent development, Belinda is a great addition to our growing football development team.

In addition to expertise gained through federation and club roles, Belinda brings valuable insight as a national tournament referee, club administrator and tournament coach leading teams through domestic and overseas competitions. Belinda holds junior, youth and senior talent perform coaching licences and is an active New Zealand Level 2 Referee.

Belinda’s move to Upper Hutt from the Manawatu is a fantastic gain for our football community and our women’s teams are already taking advantage of opportunities to travel further afield for pre-season preparation with games lined up in Palmerston North.

Please extend a warm welcome to Belinda and her family to our Upper Hutt Football Community. And we also take this opportunity to thank our outgoing girls’ football development manager Kirsty Windleburn for her massive contribution to girl’s football in recent years.

You can meet Belinda and our female football development coaches at our FREE Girls ‘Give It A Go’ session on Sunday 8th March at Maidstone Park Turf, 9am-12noon. Existing and new players are strongly encouraged to come along.  More info
