Southern Football Development League (SFDL)

We are pleased to inform you that registrations for Queenstown AFC u15 and u17 Southern Football Development (SFDL) League are now open.

For those of you who are not familiar, this is a competitive league designed to develop footballers by improving both the technical and tactical understanding of the game playing against the best players in the lower South Island.

These teams will be run like a professional academy and coached by Steve Henderson and Mark Ford, both of whom are respected and qualified coaches who have been with the club for many years.

We are looking for anyone who is at High School who wants to develop and reach their potential to come along to the pre – season shake down sessions on the following dates;

2nd February at 5.30-7pm @ Queenstown Events Centre Pitch 3b

7th February at 5.30-7pm @ Lower Shotover, Headley Drive

9th February at 5.30-7pm @ Queenstown Events Centre Pitch 3b

Whilst it isn’t mandatory to attend to guarantee selection, these sessions will benefit all involved to understand the commitments needed throughout the season.

After this, the squads will begin pre-season training from 14th Feb – 30th March 2023, which will likely consist of 2 x 90 minute sessions per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The season then begins in April and runs through to September. 

To Register please complete a registration here: Register 2023 ⋆ Queenstown Football

NOTE: If you are already registered and paid for this season for u15 or u17 teams then you do not need to register again. We will advise of the additional costs involved after confirmation of your selection into the SFDL by Steve and Mark.

We look forward to an exciting season ahead.
