MiniRoos is designed for kids of all abilities, aged 4 – 9 years. The nation-wide initiative uses short, game-based sessions to introduce the sport of football to newcomers in an inclusive way. It focuses on learning new skills, being active, making life-long friends and, potentially, unearthing the next generation of Socceroos or Westfield Matildas.
The Limestone Coast Football Association is offering the following age groupings for our Miniroos aged players.
Your childs age at the 1st of January will determine which age group they will be eligible to play in. For example, if your child is 7 on the 1st of January and they turn 8 on the 1st of February, they are still eligible to play Under 8 Miniroos.
Our 2020 Limestone Coast Football Association Senior Men's Best & Fairest winner, Christian Fleetwood.
Trainings will be held on Monday evenings while matches will be played at the Limestone Coast Football Association home grounds on Friday nights.
Training times will be 5:15pm to 6:15pm to allow Christian a chance to get there from work, while game times are scheduled to begin from 6:00pm to allow travel time to and from Millicent.
