Upper Hutt City Football is one of the largest junior clubs in the Wellington region, with almost 600 children aged from 4 to 17 representing the club every weekend.

From First Kicks for the littlies just starting out through to our Premier League (formerly known as the Travel Leagues) squads and U17s youth football, there are countless opportunities for young boys and girls at Upper Hutt City Football. Whether you want to play socially with your friends or push yourself to our top club teams, talent development programmes, rep football and maybe even international honours, you will find a positive and nurturing environment with a coaching team that loves football as much as you do.

Youth Development

In addition to the regular team coaching, Upper Hutt City Football offers an All Star Football Academy, run by Director of Junior Coaching Pedro Garcias.  This intensive programme operates throughout the year and is highly recommended for those players, male and female, who want to push themselves to become even better footballers. It’s perfect for those with ambitions to progress through the Capital Football / New Zealand Football Talent Pathway. 

You can read more about the All Star Football Academy here or contact Pedro on 027 457 0770, or
