Mini Roos is a smaller version of football that provides boys and girls aged 5 - 11 years with a fun introduction to the world game. As a Club, we invite kids of all backgrounds and skill levels. Our philosophy is to create a positive and encouraging environment for all our players to develop, it is all about having fun, learning new skills and making life-long friends. 

These are the first competitive age groups that players become a part of.  This is the starting point at which players are now in a team environment, where they play friendly matches against other teams and begin to understand the very basics of teamwork within a football environment. 

WHAT WE FOCUS ON

At this age group, the focus is helping the players improve their technical ability, ensuring that they continue to develop their ability to master their individual control of the ball while developing other basic skills such as passing and receiving the ball.

With the introduction of a team environment and playing friendly matches, the focus for players is to build an understanding of basic positioning and the basic roles and responsibilities of Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders and Forwards. Players will experience playing in each position to develop the specific skills that are tested at each area on the pitch.
