UPDATED 19 July 2018 (note new dates)

Upper Hutt City Football is pleased to introduce Kaizen Football Academies to our Upper Hutt community. 


Kaizen Football Academies takes this ethos and transitions it into a high quality football development programme, that focuses not just on technical and tactical aspects, but the physical, psychological and social/emotional needs of the player to achieve their goals.
