The Awakeri Soccer Club originated from the enthusiasm of Awakeri School staff members John Elmers, Roger Williams and Jan Mahy. They fielded an Under-10 team in 1979, in the school's name. This team was coached by Roger Williams. Developing enthusiasm led to a meeting of parents, who formed the club in 1981 with president Bonnie Wetting. Teams were fielded in the U-8 "Sparrows", U-10 "Keas" and U-12 (2 teams) "Eagles" & "Hawks" age groups. The club colours are royal blue and white.

The club is still based on the Awakeri Primary School and usually has around 120 players. From 1993 the club has been fortunate to gain sponsorship from local companies. We have fielded at least one all girls team since the 2002 season, and usually field around 12 teams.
The acquisition of new grounds adjacent to the school enabled three fields to be set up from 1994, one of them full sized.
