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.
Despite the recent disruptions due to Covid 19 we are hoping to participate in any School Football Tournaments that are on offer. We have now selected a Y7 and a Y8 Boys team (trials completed 17 June). Training and Games will begin as of the 19 June.

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 which take place during school time. Therefore, you can continue to represent your Club team with no disruption to either team. We may select 2 teams of mixed year level based on skill, ability and experience - A team 1 and 2.
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.
Important information will go up on the Daily Notices, which may include trials, training days/times and any changes. This is our main communication channel between students and staff/coaches. Please ensure you are reading these every day and entering any important info in your HW Diary.
Here’s to another exciting season and I really look forward to catching up with you all on the sidelines at some stage throughout Term 3 of 2020! Please do not hesitate to contact me should you need any clarification of anything!
