Four clubs make up the Rodney Otamatea Soccer Association (ROSA) – Kaipara, Wellsford, Mangawhai and Matakana.
The competition caters for seven grades from pee-wee to open, with Warkworth also having one side in the open grade.
Grades 6, 10 and 15 kick-off at 9am while grade 8 starts at 9.35am, grade 12 at 10.10am and open at 11.15am. All games are held on Saturdays at Port Albert Domain.
ROSA secretary Rachel Rewi says the feedback she gets from parents is that they enjoy not having to travel long distances with all games being held at the same venue.
Last year the competition catered for about 400 players. This season, with late registrations in, there has been an increase in numbers, according to Mangawhai Football Club president Dustin Brown.
Two open grade teams have also been added to the tournament this year.
The season starts on May 7.
