Congratulations to Ben Parrett who has been selected for the Taranaki Under 17 Football Representative team.


The National Youth Development Leagues are a new initiative with a prolonged development opportunity for our top male U17, and female U18 youth players. This programme aims to expose a larger pool of players to a higher level of competition than they would get regionally with both Federation and National components involved.


Male players will challenge themselves against teams from across the Central and Capital regions as part of the regional competition component. The top three teams from the Central/Capital component will then qualify for the National series, where they will take on teams from across New Zealand to see who will be crowned the National Youth League champions.
