Miniroos Mixed U8-U11

MiniRoos is designed for players of all abilities, aged 8-11 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 Subway Socceroos or CommBank Matildas!

The season competition runs from April to September with many teams starting training in March. Games are played on Sunday mornings. Home games are at Mayer Park, Thornbury. Teams play in Kanga, Wallaby or Joey divisions, with Kanga for the most able players. All players must wear shin guards and bring a water bottle to training and games. Our coaches are mainly parent volunteers, but many are qualified to the required Football Victoria level for the age group. If you would like to help with coaching, please contact our Mini Roos Co-ordinator duscjuniors@gmail.com
