Womens & Mens First Teams

Our Mens and Womens First teams and Reserves are the only teams in the Bay of Plenty Region competing in the NRFL (Northern Regional Football League). We also have Senior teams in the WaiBOP Federation, Bay Leagues, Mens Over 35's and Sunday Social leagues. It's our ambition to compete in the Womens and Mens National Leagues.

2022 is an exciting year for our Womens First Team. After winning the 2021 WaiBOP W-League undefeated, they earned promotion to the NRFL Womens Premiership. They were also a finalist for the SportBOP Team of the Year.

Our Director of Football Barry Gardiner, is supported by an amazing Head Coaching Team who work with our qualified and experienced coaches throughout the season. In 2022 our NRFL coaching team includes Barry Gardiner (NZF/OFC A Licence candidate), Nic Millichip (NZF/OFC A Licence candidate), Maia Ririnui (NZF/OFC A Licence candidate), Cameron Grieve (NZF/OFC B Licence), Jim Burtenshaw (NZF/OFC C Licence), Kieran Mischewski & Emily Parthemore.

Youth Opportunities

Our reserves teams feature a number of youth players who also have the opportunity to compete in one of our NRFL Youth or WaiBOP Federation leagues. These teams operate in our Talent Development Programmes (TDP), the only NZ Football accredited TDP in the WaiBOP region. This enables our youth players the best player pathway opportunities in the Bay of Plenty.

WaiBOP Leagues

We compete in the Mens Federation and Womens W-League. These leagues enable our players an opportunity to be selected for our First Teams. We also have teams competing in the Mens and Womens Bay Leagues and new in 2022 a Mens Over 35 league. For the more social players, our mens Sunday Social team are perfect, playing every 2nd Sunday over the Winter season.

New players are welcome to join the TCAFC whānau, whether that's socially or competitive.
