About Us

New Plymouth Rangers AFC (NP Rangers) is the complete football club with both senior men's and women's teams competing in the local Taranaki leagues for honors and across the Central football region in the Chatham Cup. We have our first team play in the Central Federation League which enables players to push higher than just the local league. NP Rangers also has a junior division that caters for both boys and girls across the 4th to 15th grades. We also run a very successful Summer Soccer 5-aside program for youngsters, aged 5-13 years.

The NP Rangers Clubrooms and playing field is at Merrilands Domain, 259 Mangorei Rd, New Plymouth.

Typically the competition season starts from Easter and ends around September. However the Club gets active well before this organising player registration, coaches, pre-season training and "friendly" games.

New members (either as a player or supporter) are always welcome, please call either of the contacts listed on the left if you would like more information about joining our Club.

The Club promotes a strong sense of team spirit within its members and social events are organised during the season to enable members to get together in a more relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Coaching is an important part of the Club, especially for our juniors and senior members are encouraged to 'give' back to the game by supporting the Junior division - either by assisting with coaching or simply providing some skill sessions to our up and coming players. Coaches are also provided opportunity for development with the Club providing monetary support.

Participation in the administration of the Club is encouraged. A committee takes care of the day to day administrative duties that are required in running a Club. Other members are involved in roles such as Club Room Hire, organising Summer Soccer, looking after the website, managing the membership database, and sponsorship
