Academy Trials



Christchurch United Football Club are holding official open trials to help strengthen our existing high level youth teams.


The club’s U13/U14/U15 teams were all crowned Mainland Champions this season and are looking to further build on this but more importantly continue the development of each & every individual player.


Alongside hoping to add players into our U12/U13/U14/U15/U17 Academy Squads, the club also have spaces within our Development Squads for these same age groups. The idea to have two platforms for youth footballers per age group, who ALL receive the following;

  • Train & play matches on the stunning all-weather CFC surfaces
  • Sessions delivered by a fully licensed coach
  • Handed an all-new full uniform package worth $600
  • Have access to the newly installed +$30,000 video analysis system ‘SPIIDEO’ – as used by European professional clubs


The dates of our open trials are as follows;

U11 & U12: Nov 13th/15th/20th/22nd/23rd

U13: Nov 15th/20th/22nd

U14: Nov 15th/20nd/22nd/23rd/24th

U15: 13th/15th/20th/23rd

NOTE: above age groups are current (2018) age groups. Players trialing for next years U17’s team are joining the U15’s trials.
