Senior Mens ‘social’ teams play in the local Auckland Football Federation leagues.
These leagues begin at Division 1 and drop down as far as Division 9.
We also have aged controlled teams such as the Under 19s and several ‘masters’ age teams including over 30s, over 35’s and over 40’s.
Men’s games are played on a Saturday afternoon, usually at 1 pm or 2.45 pm, and home games are generally played at Keith Hay Park.

Senior Registration Fees

The Senior registration fees for the season are:

  • U19 Grade = $245.00
  • Development and Reserve Team Grade = $245.00
  • Senior Grades = $320.00

This includes a $20 Building Levy which will contribute to the building of our new clubroom.
An Early Payment Discount of $40.00 applies to all Senior registration payments made by 15th March.

We require that at least 8 players are registered in your team with their fees to be paid by 28th February to guarantee your team entry to AFF.
The balance of team fees to be paid prior to the first game on 1st April.
There is a $40 Early Bird discount for any payments received up until the 15th March.

Our recommended number of players in a team is 16, and the fees are calculated based on that number.
However, if a team is entered and contains either more or less than 16 players, the individual fee may need to be adjusted accordingly.
Players accepted into a Grade are not considered to be members of the Club until full payment is received.
Un-financial Players, or those players with outstanding fines from previous seasons, will not be eligible for team selection.

The most efficient way to pay is using the on-line credit card facility or internet banking. To further encourage use of our online registration system, and to reflect the administrative time and effort associated with non-automated payments, any non-credit card / internet banking payments (i.e. cash or cheques) will be subject to a $15 manual processing fee per transaction.

Please note that if you have not registered and paid by the 7th March we may not be able to guarantee you a place in a team and those players accepted into a grade are not considered to be members of the club until full payment is received.

Other Charges

Player and Team Fines for cautions during a game are charged by Auckland Football Federation to the Club.
These charges are passed onto the player or manager (along with a small administration fee).
The charges are $31.90 for a yellow card and $81.90 for a red card and $118.40 for violent conduct or exceptional misconduct.
Payment is expected within two weeks of receiving these fines, and the club reserves the right to stand the player down until the fine is cleared.

Senior ‘Social’ Teams
Three Kings United (TKU) run a large number ‘social’ men’s teams
These teams are typically made of players who have formed a team and have been playing together for a number of years.
They are entered in grades from Men’s Division 2 down to Men’s Division 9.
We also cater for those young enough to be eligible for U19 teams.
The club caters for a wide range of playing abilities.
In many cases existing teams may need additional players and the club does it’s best to place new individual players where we can.
The league games are typically played on Saturday (but can vary).
It is entirely up to the team coach (in conjunction with the team) whether the team will have a training session outside of game day or not.
The teams are generally coached by a volunteer coach, and these teams need to source their own manager, but they supported by the club.

Team Managers

All social teams need to source their own manager.
This is not an arduous role, and often the manager will be a player/manager and the manager’s main job is to be the contact with the club.
The manager will be responsible for and help co-ordinate and distribute the team gear, fill in team cards, and send in team result.
Help is available from the club for managers with any issue related to their teams.

Team Gear

The Club provides the team with a captains arm band, 1 match ball, 1 new practice ball, whistle, cones, team bibs and gear bag.
Players will need to purchase their own club playing shirts, shorts and socks.

Referees

The Club will meet the cost of referees for home games, where they are available.
For the higher divisions, this should equate to a referee in most or all games.
Unfortunately referees are in short supply, and for the lower divisions, as the growth of the game and demand for referees has outpaced the supply, we are often short of a referee.
The club is trying to address this, and is encouraging Club Based Referees to referee these senior games.
CBR’s are paid $45 per game.
Please contact the General Manager, if you wish to be part of this initiative.
