Stop Out is an association football club in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. They are based at Hutt Park, but due to renovations home matches have been played at Hutt Raceway in Seaview.

The Stop Out organisation was founded in 1919 with the aim of providing recreation to Hutt Valley children, so as to prevent them becoming "stop outs", period slang for troubled youth. The organisation has been involved with several sports over the course of its history, notably athletics, softball and boxing, but is now focused on football. Despite the change of sporting code focus, the club highly values the founding principles and abides by them today. The football branch was established in 1922 as the club Moera Stop Out, changing its name to Stop Out in 1932. The club won the Chatham Cup in 1956, and was runner-up for the National League title in 1977. In 1983 and 1983 Stop Out won the Central Region title.

Stop Out’s senior club has grown to eight men’s teams. The club's first team played in Central League in the 2006 season, the first time in over a decade. The club fields three teams in the Masters Divisions and a further four teams in the Capital Leagues (Capital 4, Capital 9, Capital 10 and Capital 13).

In 2006 the junior grades fielded 41 teams, of which 7 played in JPL or JPL-promo leagues.
