Girls Only League
2016 saw the introduction of a Girls Only winter leagues in the Waikato Bay of Plenty region. The leagues are run as normal from May to September on Saturdays with draws available on the WaiBOP website.
Claudelands Rovers have enthusiastically taken on board the promotion of the girls only leagues with the desire to provide an encouraging environment to ensure girls have the opportunities to succeed.
Claudelands Rovers are very pleased to be involved with WaiBOP in promoting the new Girls Only leagues which are being launched this season. These leagues are for Girls Only U8’s (7th & 8th Grade) and Girls Only U11’s (9th to 11th Grade) and U13’s (12th and 13th Grade). Fielding teams in these divisions will be dependent on getting the required number of keen girls registered to play, so encourage your friend to come and join you in playing Football.
The wider ambition for female football at Claudelands Rovers is retaining females within the club and providing an enjoyable and sustainable pathway into both social and competitive football, which ever level they wish to achieve. Rovers currently have 4 senior womens teams – Womens development, WaiBOP Womens Premier, Northern League Reserves and Northern League Premier Women. In the past, approximately 22 NZ representative players have passed through the club on their way to greatness, with ex NZ Football ferns Helen Colins and Sarah Mclaughlin still supporting the club today. Rovers womens teams have all seen success with the most recent being the Northern League Premier Women Champions in 2015, Northern League Reserve Champions and Reserve Knockout Cup Champions in 2015. Currently, it is a time for rebuilding at Rovers with a better and brighter future for all female football players.
We need your assistance
This year we have set ourselves some goals to build a stronger junior club so we can deliver more for the kids. To enable us to do this we need your help and support as the club is only as good as the individual parents and volunteers who assist with the various tasks that need to be done leading into the season and during the season. Please contact us if you are keen to help in anyway.
