Football is a popular sport at Selwyn College with nine teams playing in College Sport Auckland compeititons in 2021.

The Boys 1st XI plays in the Premier 1A competition in Auckland which is very exciting for the school, and other teams play at various levels to ensure a great experience for Selwyn footballers – no matter their skill or experience level.

The girls football programme caters to all keen players – in 2021 we fielded a 1st XI, a 2nd XI Senior team and a Junior team.

Both 1st XI’s participate in tournament events as part of Winter Tournament Week – with the 1st XI Boys playing at the NZSS National Championships ad the girls team playing at a satellite tournament.



1st XI Boys play games on a Friday night or Saturday morning, depending on their opponent.  Homes games are held at Bill McKinlay Park on Fridays.
Other boys teams play on Saturday mornings on a home and away basis.
Girls teams play on Wednesday after school on a home and away basis.


The first XI teams train twice a week, while all other teams have a weekly training.  Times are confirmed with each team and subject to player and coach availability.


1st XI Boys – $150.00 per season

13A Boys – $120.00 per season
All other teams – $80.00
Fees cover coaching, entry fees, equipment and uniforms.


1st XI play in the school 1st XI uniform.

Senior teams play in black shorts and school issued tops.
Junior teams play in PE uniform.


We are always looking for coaches and managers – please contact the Sports Department if you can assist.
Parents will need to help transport teams to games.
