Youth Teams

To continue to provide a football pathway for our juniors a youth development programme was initiated by the club.

Claudelands Rovers youth teams will play in the WaiBOP federation youth league on Sundays. Football in this league is played at a very high level, it is for gifted players and has 11 players aside.  Play is followed by after match food and speeches so it requires good commitment from both parents and players.
