MINIROOS

(born 2013-2017 in season 2024)

What is Miniroos? 

MiniRoos is the name for boys and girls soccer at the sub junior level (Under 7-11). Smaller fields, modified rules and fewer players mean a more enjoyable game with more opportunities to touch the ball and more opportunities to score goals, once again increasing the likelihood of an overall positive experience.

 

As your child progresses through the various age groups they will be introduced to playing environments that most suit their stage of development and prepare them for the transition to 11v11 football when the time comes.

Pre-Season Training and Player Allocation 

Pre-season training will commence Monday 29 January, 2024.

 

  • During pre season training sessions, players’ skills will be assessed, and players will be allocated to their training session time and teams based on their developmental stage.

  • This is done in a very gentle way – the players will not know that they are being assessed as they will be observed during normal training sessions. 

  • This is not about deciding if your child is good or bad, this is about making sure that we understand players skill levels and then placing them in a team where they will enjoy the sport and best develop.

  • We aim to notify players of team allocations by mid March.
