Based in the South-Eastern Hamilton suburb of Hillcrest, the Hillcrest United Football Club (HUFC) accommodates players between the ages of four years (Grade 5) and 14 years (14th Grade). HUFC fosters a supportive and inclusive environment within which children can enjoy physical activity in a team situation while developing their football abilities. Our players come from a wide range of schools, including Silverdale Normal, Matangi, Hillcrest Normal and Berkley Intermediate, and local kindergartens.
The home ground for the HUFC is Jansen Park on Morris Road in Hillcrest. These grounds will provide fields for all the training and for some games on Saturday mornings.
In 2022 HUFC fielded approximately 230 players across 17 junior teams who competed in the Waikato Juniors Competition organised by WaiBOP Football, and 5 teams of 4-6 year olds involved in the First Kicks programme. The season begins in late April and continues until mid-September, with breaks for school holidays. Children will play up to 15 games in a season. The season ends with the annual 5-a-side tournament for 8th grade and above.
