Fencibles Junior Framework:

The junior section at Fencibles United are following the McDonald’s Junior Football frame work that is aiming to provide all children aged 4-9/10 years with high quality Football experiences that increase passion for the game, fundamental movement and playing skills. All whilst having fun!

Through McDonald’s Junior Football, players will experience age appropriate games and coaching in a programme that is specifically tailored to meet their wants and needs.

Providing standardised playing formats, clear outcomes and training recommendations for each stage of a player’s development, the importance of the McDonald’s Junior Football cannot be underestimated.  It will ensure the experience provided at the grassroots leaves Kiwi kids enthused, technically competent and in love with sport.

Three programmes are offered:

  • McDonald’s First Kicks (4-6 Years)
  • McDonald’s Fun Football (7-8 Years)
  • McDonald’s Mini Football (9-10 Years)

Parking at Meadowlands

Please note:

1. Be considerate about parking. Ensure you park well clear of resident's driveways.

2. Ensure rubbish from snacks/drinks when you return to the car are not left on the premises, please take it with you.

3. Most importantly to drive and park safely and supervise children very carefully when leaving and returning to cars.

4. Alicia Road is a narrow road when cars are parked on both sides. Please watch young children exiting cars on the road side. Likewise when returning to cars after the games.

5. We want people to be safe and we need to work together to keep safe and tidy.
