Nerang juniors are bred and built to always play like champions until the final whistle – no matter what the scoreboard reads!

Our club has a level of football for every junior – from early non-competition teams through to our extensive training academy, and right up to our premiership-winning JPL teams.

With over 40 years of history producing top quality players within an inclusive and supportive environment, Nerang is one of the Gold Coast’s most sought-after junior footballer destinations.

Our juniors learn a vast array of skills and behaviours, not just on the field but off as well. These include life skills, friendship building, confidence, social skills, teamwork, respect, work ethics, self-belief, inclusiveness and tolerance. Being an Eagle is much more than simply playings Soccer.

Contact the club to learn how your child can become an Eagle!
