What is MiniRoos?
MiniRoos is designed for kids of all abilities, aged 5-11 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 Socceroos or Matildas.
You can download the official MiniRoos Parent Information Pack here.
Being a family-focused club, MiniRoos is an important part of Boomers FC. We run the MiniRoos Club Football program which involves one training night per week (Thursdays), and one game day (Saturdays) following the playing format and rules outlined here.
Please register online here. The cost to register for the entire season (training and games) is $140.
For NSW residents, you can apply for an Active Kids Voucher on the Service NSW website.
Register your child with the age they turn this year. For example:
- A child turning 10 years this year register U/10
- A child turning 5 years this year register U/5
The 2024 Boomers FC MiniRoos Co-ordinator is Ryan Van Grinsven. You can contact Ryan at email@example.com.
The MiniRoos coaching team is led by Ryan Van Grinsven, Matt Burt, Stephen Hayes, and Adam Griffith (all Football Federation Australia C Licence-accredited coaches), and supported by community-qualified coaches.
Parent volunteers are very welcome to join in at training, to support the coaching team, and on game day to help lead the games.
Training will be held on Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:15pm, at Glen Park, Glenroy (Albury).
In 2024 we invite all girls to train on Wednesday evenings at 5:30pm, at Glen Park. This ensures all girls and women at Boomers train on the same night. Any girls that can’t make Wednesday are welcome to come Thursday instead.
It is a requirement that all children are supervised by a parent or guardian.
Game days are run by Albury Wodonga Football Association (AWFA) and held on Saturdays from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. Games will be run at Jelbart Park, Willow Park, and Alexandra Park.
Each week a different club hosts the BBQ and canteen, as well as managing the setup and pack up. Your support and assistance on these days will be greatly appreciated!
