Winter Season Registrations Opens 2nd week of January 2023

Registrations open in the second week of January each year, with ESAFC training programmes running across all school terms.

The New Zealand Football Winter Season runs from May through to mid-September, with games happening each weekend during this period.

All Eastern Suburbs AFC registrations are currently done through our online portal “ClubHub”. To take part in any club training sessions or games you must be registered in this way.

We currently run two registration options

  1. Player: Select this option if you/your child intends to take part in games during the winter season. This gives you full membership at the club with access to book training programmes and school holiday programmes, as well as being placed in a team to play games during the season
  2. Non-Player: Select this option if your child only wants to take part in a weekly training programme, or to make a one-off school holiday programme booking

Training Options

Term 1 2023 commences the week of 30th January and finishes 13th April.
