Tauranga Girls’ College Football Information 2018

Welcome to Tauranga Girls’ College Football Information Page.  Football provides students with an excellent opportunity to be involved in a team, gain skills and fitness and participate in the wider life of the school.


Trials will be held after school at Tauranga Girls College Fields 1 and 2.  Girls attending Summer Sports Tournaments should prioritise those tournaments and preparation for them and should advise the Director of Football, Scott Harrison [email protected] ASAP if they cannot attend Football trials.
