Join Lower Hutt City AFC

The Junior and Senior registrations for the 2021 season are now open.

As required by NZ Football, all players (First Kicks through to Masters) and coaches must register on-line so there is a more consistent (and correct) data base across all clubs in Aotearoa/New Zealand. This means no more paper forms to compete, return or post back. You can register using the links below.

Registering in 2021

As part of New Zealand Footballs digital framework, MyCOMET is the NEW online player profile and management system implemented for all New Zealand clubs.

    Players who registered last season (2020) should use their Username and Password./ If you played last season and can not remember your Username and Password please contact registrations@nzfootball.co.nz for assistance (allow 2 business hours for a reply)
  • New football players (who have never played for a NZ club before) will need to create a MyCOMET profile using the REGISTER link below
  • Please ensure your child is registered for the correct age group. (i.e if your child has or in turning 7 in 2014 they will play in U7)
  • Please ensure all details, including contacts and date of birth are correct. **Note you can have as many emails as you wish, but the first one listed will be the Primary Email address used for all correspondence
  • ALL players (junior and senior) must register through MyCOMET before being able to play for Lower Hutt City AFC.
  • A player can only be registered to one club at a time. If you wish to play for Lower Hutt City AFC but have previously played from another club, it is recommended that you ask that club to de-register you first before registering with Lower Hutt City AFC.

What gear do I need to play?

The Junior Regulations state that it is compulsory for ALL players to wear shin guards regardless of the grade of football they play. These can be purchased from any sporting goods store.

Football boots for players attending First Kicks (U3-U6) are optional. As they play on an indoor astro turf sports shoes are fine (especially if they are just giving it a go until you know for sure). 

Football boots are a must for U7's and above. Again these can be purchased from any sporting goods store.

Football boots that have metal sprigs or cleats are NOT PERMITTED on artificial football turfs.

Lower Hutt City AFC's club shorts and socks can now be purchased through our supplier Football Central either online or at the shop located: Unit 1/3 Raiha Street Elsdon, Porirua 5022. Club sweatshirt and jackets are also available, and for an additional cost can be personalised with your name.
