Teams in the Junior club range from Kickits (fun football skills on Sunday mornings) through to Youth grade. Games are on Saturday mornings and all teams have a weekly practice. We will be having trials in March for some of the more competitive grades with the season starting on 6 April this year. There will also be opportunities to trial for Club based Tournament teams who travel to tournaments in the October school holidays. If you are super competitive or just want to have a kick around with friends we are here to support players.
The GIJFC Skills Centre is run by Kev Scoullar on Monday nights and is offered by invitation to players who are committed and ready to add additional training into their programme.
New to football and want to play in the Friday Night Girls' only league? (5-10 years, mid-year on the new turf in Logan Park) Then watch this space! It will be for existing and new players to the game. The Club is coordinating teams for the Greater Green Island.

The Green Island Association Football Club was first formed and accepted into the Otago Football Association in 1896 as the Green Island Football club situated at Harraways ground, Burnside. Disbanded during the war years and reformed in the late 1940s. The clubrooms were situated at Miller Park until the Abbotsford slip forced the club to move to its present site at Sunnyvale.
The clubrooms at Sunnyvale have undergone a huge renovation, moving the lounge into a brand new upstairs part of the building, overlooking the playing fields. This has been a massive undertaking and would not have been possible without the support of the greater Green Island community. It goes a long way to show the community spirit in the area and this is the foundation of the club.
2021 will see the club celebrate 125 years! Family and community together.
Welcome all members to another great season of Football.
