Formed in 1987, Waiheke United is a New Zealand registered charity and an incorporated society that was formed in 1987 when the local junior and senior teams combined to become Waiheke United AFC. Since its inception the dedication of the club’s committee members and volunteers, players and parents has seen the club thrive and grow to become the largest sports club on Waiheke Island and enjoy footballing success across many of the regions top leagues.
The Club was an early adopter of the Whole of Football plan set out by the New Zealand Football Federation and continues to offer the complete junior and youth framework and continues to invest in developing coaches.
First Kicks and Fun Football - Designed for all budding Messi's aged from 4 to 7 years of age. Game days run on Saturday mornings from 8:50am until 10:30am from March to September. This programme is a great way for youngsters to learn and play the wonderful game of football. Coaching caters to all levels of players in a safe, fun and encouraging environment.
Junior & Youth Football - We have just over 100 kids from age 9 (9th Grade) through to 16 (youth leagues). Competition is against other clubs around central Auckland, both home and away. The season typically begins around the first week of April and continues through to September each year.
In addition the club has recently enjoyed success at the mens and womens senior level with the Mens first team winning promotion to Northern Regional Football League 1.
Waiheke United is run by a passionate and hard-working group of volunteers. The club’s success is dependent on the philosophy of “many hands makes light work” along with delegation and empowerment. With this in mind each committee member has a clear role within the club.
We’re always looking for new committee members, and welcome your suggestions so if you’re interested in joining the committee or have an idea please contact the Club Secretary.
