COVID-19 Information


For the 2022 season, all Players, Coaches, Officials, and Volunteers over the age of 12 years and 3 months will require a Vaccine Pass to be able to participate. This is a New Zealand Football directive, based on guidelines from Sport New Zealand and the Government.

Players over the age of 12 years 3 months without a My Vaccine Pass will not be able to participate in any training or games.

12 years and 3 months is the age dictated by the Ministry of Health. The criteria is based on participants turning 12 years of age, and becoming eligible for a My Vaccine Pass, plus a three month grace period.

For more information refer to the New Zealand Football Covid Protection Framework.
