 BOYS FOOTBALL 2020

Welcome to the start of another action packed Football season here at NX!

Northcross Boys Football has an amazing legacy at NX - with 7 NZ AIMS Games Champion titles and numerous Auckland and NH Champion wins.

This year will see another busy football schedule unfold with NX entering into several football tournaments with the culmination being the AIMS games in September. Below you will find a list of dates that outline our current schedule for 2020 so that you can begin to organise your Football calendar. Northcross expects all players and parents to represent themselves, your family, the school and the community in an exceptional manner. Please refer to our Sports Code of Conduct Form for more details on our expectations. 

How does Football work at NX? 

The NX Boys Football teams play in mostly one-off tournament days through Terms 2 and 3. These tournaments take place during school time. Therefore, you can continue to represent your Club team with no disruption to either team. The Boys compete as independent Y7 and Y8 teams at the North Harbour Zone Day (Term 2). Then after this tournament we select our best Y7 and Y8 Footballers to make our NX team that represents us in the rest of our fixtures through to the AIMS games in September (Term 3). 

Selections 

A reminder to all Players and Parents that the selection of players is very difficult given the quality and numbers of lads wishing to play here at Northcross. A player’s position in any team will be determined by the coach, manager and guest selectors and where they see the player best serving the TEAM. It is very important that players and parents are aware of this before making the decision to play. Please refer to and read our Sports Selection Policies on the School Website. All Boys Football teams will have a minimum of 2x trials before squads/teams are selected.  Trials may take place before school and lunchtimes.  

Teams Available to Trial for 

  • Year 7 Boys Football - North Harbour Zone Day Team (possibility of 2 teams if quality of players and tournament organisers allow) 
  • Year 8 Boys Football - North Harbour Zone Day Team (possibility of 2 teams if quality of players and tournament organisers allow)
