At Oxford FC, our children have always been at the heart of our club, so we understand how important it is that they have access to fun, friendly, no-pressure sport, where they can learn and have fun with their friends in a safe and encouraging environment.

Over the last couple of years, the World has changed and we've recognised that, for many families within our community, the cost of membership for children's sport is getting harder to afford with each season. This is especially true at this time, when inflation and the general cost of living is increasing almost daily, and fuel prices make travel to games even more costly. 

The Oxford Football Club Committee have decided that we want to do things a little differently from every other sports club in the region, and so, we have decided that, in 2023, we will offer every child aged 9 and under, who registers in our First Kicks, Fun Football and Mini Football programs, the opportunity to play football for FREE.

This means that Oxford FC will not charge any membership fees and will fund the Mainland Football and New Zealand Football fees for each child's membership within these programs. We eventually hope to roll this approach out across all children under the age of 16 who wish to play football for Oxford, but this depends on funding.

As far as we know, we are the only football club in Canterbury to offer FREE football, and awe may also be the only football club in New Zealand to do so as well.
