U13 - U17 Grade Youth Summer Academy 

The West Coast Rangers U13 - U17 Academy is for our youth players (U13-U17) that wish to train 2x a week with dedicated and qualified coaches, following the West Coast Rangers curriculum.

All our Head Coaches either hold or are in the process of finalizing their New Zealand Football C License Coaching accreditation. 

For term 4 we will offer our Summer Academy, running 2x sessions per week.

These sessions are designed to allow players that are interested in joining the WCR Youth Academy in 2024 to get a taste of our methods through the 'off season', continue their football development, and get to know the coaches, staff and other players who are part of the program.

Sessions commence on Tuesday October 17th, finishing on Thursday December 12th.

We are now in the final stages of finalising becoming an accredited club within the New Zealand Football Talent Development Program for the 2024 season, and expect this to be announced, along with extra details of what we will offer as a result of this change, in due course.

Details for the U13-U17 term 4 Summer Academy program are; 

  • Tuesday 5.00pm - 6.15pm @ Fred Taylor

  • Thursdays - 5.00pm - 6.15pm @ Fred taylor


  • $80 / term for one session (you pick Tuesday or Thursday)
  • $140 / term for both sessions (attending on Tuesday and Thursday each week)
