Napier City Rovers Juniors section is for boys and girls from five years old upwards. The philosophy of the NCR's junior coaches is to develop the football skills and techniques of the young players in a fun and safe environment. Coaches at NCR will be fully focussed on the player and not the result of individual games. Player development is the most important part of their role.
