The Junior season starts on Saturday 1th April !


The retreating line was introduced last year in Christchurch, and we expect 100% of junior coaches to be aware of it this year!

We want Kids, parents and coaches to fully understand the process and the purpose behind this new rule.

Mainland Football will host 2 evening sessions about the Retreating line rule in junior Football.(9 to 12 years old)

We will explain how to set up, but most importantly “How to coach within the retreating line in 7×7 or 9×9 match”.

Players from skill centre will play on site to demonstrate and help explain…

  • Friday 24 March at English Park from 5.30 to 6.30pm.
  • Friday 31 March at English Park from 5.30 to 6.30pm.
