|Otumoetai Football Club|
Welcome to the ‘Female Football’ page at Otumoetai Football Club. On this page, we will celebrate all that is female football at Otumoetai Football Club.
2016 saw the introduction of the u8 Girls Only winter leagues in the Bay of Plenty region. In 2017 this was expanded to include u11 and u13 leagues throughout the WAIBOP region.
Currently Otumoetai have the u8 White Tigers, u11 Hawks, Osprey and Eagles and the u13 Falcons. These teams play in the Saturday league that runs during the normal football season from May to September.
2017 also saw the introduction of the u16 WAIBOP Girls Federation league which is played on a Sunday. The Harriers, which is made up of a mixture of Otumoetai College, Tauranga Girls College and Bethlehem College players, are all working together and having a fantastic first season representing Otumoetai Football Club in this league.
As well as these new girl’s leagues, we also have our college teams, the 1st and 2nd Xl and College Black and Green teams. This year (2017) the 1st Xl will be representing Otumoetai College at the New Zealand Secondary School Premier Tournament in Taupo in September.
For our women, we have our 1st Women's team and our Social Women's team. This year our 1st Women’s team finished 2nd equal (on points) in the Bay One league. This has earned them a place in the WAIBOP Federation league and the opportunity to play for a place Northern Regional Federation League.
2018 sees another change to the Junior and Girls Federation leagues, as the interest in female only football grows, with the introduction of the u14 Girls Federation League and a change in the banding of the Junior Girls League to u8, u10 and u12.
