REGISTER HERE FOR THE 2024 SEASON

The aim of Mini Blues is to offer our young stars of the future a fun, engaging and safe learning environment where they can fall in love with our beautiful game.

Games are played at Ocean Downs, with the season starting in Term 2 going through until the end of Term 3. Start dates and draws are communicated with members closer to the time.

Our game day formats align with NZ Football's First Kicks junior coaching model... but of course with all the usual fun.

So come along, join the fun at Tauranga's best football club!

Any questions, please contact our team hello@tcafc.co.nz

Playing Kit

We provide our Mini Blues teams shirts to play in. Black shorts and black socks can be purchased through our club store here.


Our U7 players will need to purchase a club shirt, which you can find in our club store here.

You will also need shin-pads (mandatory) and boots (available in our club store) or players can wear shoes as well.

Most sports stores stock these, or you can try the Tauranga Football Marketplace Facebook page, where people are often selling used boots.
