How do I know if my team training or game is cancelled?
Arrangements for notifying cancellation of training will be confirmed within your team. As a first resort checking if the grounds are open is encouraged www.wcc.govt.nz or call 801 4134. If sportsgrounds are closed, then training is always cancelled (this includes school grounds as well).
Cancellation/transfer of games information is available through Capital Football www.capitalfootball.org.nz (this information is sometimes posted on their site on a Friday night prior to game day).
PDP game day transfers to the indoor venue will be notified either by email or through Newstalk ZB.
Why are grounds closed so much?
This is a Wellington City Council decision. Training day ground closures are usually made to preserve grounds for weekend matches. Game day is often due to the field being unplayable. More artificial turfs are being built in Wellington which will ease the cancellation burden.
Do I have to play for my college? If so, when?
Players can continue to play for any junior club until they turn 14 (males) or 15 (females). After this time they will play for a college. Alternatively you can shift from the NW junior club into the NW senior club as they have teams at both the U17 and U21 levels catering for youth players.
How can I help the club? I don't have much time, but want to help..
There are lots of ways, big and small that you can support the club. We rely on volunteers to ensure the club runs smoothly. There are many tasks that need undertaking. The committee is always keen to see new members come onboard, but we're also happy to have people just keen to help with odd jobs; fundraising (sausage sizzles, raffles, selling branding clothing, coming up with ideas), sorting gear at the beginning and end of the season, assisting at our open days, coaching, managing a team, the list is endless. The club is run on volunteers, so please talk to a Committee member. Contact details for the Senior club can be found here.
