MiniRoos football caters for our youngest players to give them an introduction to the game. Ranging in age groups from Under 8 through to Under 11, the purpose is to give children the basic skills of playing this low-contact team sport in a friendly, fun environment.
The U8 and U9 age groups introduce goalkeepers and play 7-a-side on approximately 1/4 size pitch with 20 minutes in each half. Teams will train for 45 minutes on a Thursday afternoon and games are typically on Saturday morning on a home and away basis. The emphasis is on building skills in preparation for competitive football. The U9 age group is softly graded in leagues such as Komodos, Goannas and Geckos.
The U10 to U11 age groups play 9-a-side on 1/2 size pitches with 25 minutes in each half. Teams will train for 60 minutes on a Thursday evening and games are typically on Saturday on a home and away basis. These age groups are softly graded into the Komodos, Goanna and Gecko leagues, although no league tables will be published.

The U12 age group is now considered Juniors and whilst the play 9-a-side on 1/2 size pitches with 25 minutes in each half, they are also graded into divisions and they maintain a points table, premiership and promotion/relegation.
