Welcome to our Youth information page

Our Youth grades are specially designed for both boys and girls between the ages of 13 and 17 yrs old. Games are played on various fields across the North Shore and West Auckland as announced by the Northern Football Federation. 

Please see their website, www.nff.org.nz for detailed maps and ground locations.

13th grade to under 17's play on a full size field with full size goals. The game is approximately: 60minutes for 13th grade

  • 70minutes for 14th grade 
  • 80minutes for 15th grade 
  • 90minutes for 16th & 17th grade

Games usually play at:

  • 12pm for 13th grade
  • 12pm or 1pm for 14th grade
  • 1pm or 2.45pm for 15th/16th/17th grade

The team sizes are usually between 14 to 16. There are 11 players on the field at a time including a goalkeeper.

Each player should be wearing Albany shirt, shorts and socks for their game.  If you have not yet purchased this, or don’t have one from last year (or handed down from a sibling), please see here. Players must also be wearing shin pads and boots for their game – these can be purchased at any sporting outlet, however we recommend going to Ultra Football Albany, and shopping our recommended products by selecting "Club" on their website, "Albany United FC" then using access code AUFC20.

Youth Co-Ordinator

Mike Sanders - Youth Coordinator

My name is Mike Sanders and I am the Youth Co-ordinator for the 2020 season looking after the U13-U17 grades.  I’ve been on the Junior Youth committee and the Management board of the club for the last 3 years. Where I have enjoyed being a parents voice and making a difference for the kids on the field. You will probably see me riding around on the quadbike  on a Saturday or at Tournaments helping my son Josh, (who currently plays in the U17 dev team and has been part of the Albany United family for the past 10 years)  set up for the first kicks and junior games on a Saturday. You can contact me anytime at mikes@albanyunited.org or youth@albanyunited.org
