The Pukerua Bay Soccer Club is a junior football club based in the small sea-side suburb of Pukerua Bay at the northern most end of Porirua City, Wellington. Our primary objective is to provide children from all backgrounds and ability with the opportunity to participate and fall in love with the game of football.
The club caters for all children aged 6 to 14 from Pukerua Bay and surrounding suburbs such as Plimmerton, Cambourne, Mana, Whitby, Aotea, and Papakowhai.
Pukerua Bay Soccer Club is a small community oriented club (approx. 85 registered members) with passionate children, and strong whanau and community support. This translates to an environment which encourages children who are new to the game or where their main priority is to have fun and enjoy the game of football to play football. Whilst this is the main priority of children playing at Pukerua Bay we also encourage those players and teams who are willing to be more competitive.
We have had a team competing in the last three years of the Wellington Graded Champs and in this season’s Douglas Villa tournament in Masterton, and have players attending Ole Football Academy, players obtaining scholarships to Ole Football Academy and finally this year one player travelling to Australia as part of the Ricki Herbert Football Academy for an international. However, on a whole all teams have been improving steadily over the past few years with many teams performing well in the local leagues. We also provide the opportunity for females to play with many girls participating in the mixed grades but also playing in the Girls-Only Summer Leagues. Summer training has also been run for those wanting further development.
Most of the Pukerua Bay teams play in the Wellington/Western zone our younger teams (7th and 8th grade) playing in the Kapiti Coast competition (Paekakariki, Paraparaumu, Waikane, Otaki).
Pukerua Bay club is also part of Waikanae AFC’s Kotahitanga Waikanae Talent Development Programme for 13th to 15th grade players, along with all the other clubs on the Kapiti coast.
