MiniRoos

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.

Registration

Please register online here. MiniRoos registration is $100 for 5-9 year olds and $130 for 10-11 year olds.

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

MiniRoos Co-ordinator

Coaches

The MiniRoos coaching team is led by Matt Burt and Adam Griffith (both Football Federation Australia C Licence-accredited coaches), and supported by community coaches Shannon Gilson and Nick Brown.

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

Training will be held on Thursday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:15pm, at Glen Park, Glenroy (Albury). It is a requirement that all children are supervised by a parent or guardian.

Game day

Game days are run by Albury Wodonga Football Association (AWFA) and held on Saturdays from 12:30pm to 2:30pm, at Jelbart Park, Lavington.

  • U5s, U6s, U8s, and U10s start at 12:30pm
  • U7s, U9s, and U11s start at 1:30pm
Once a season AWFA run a Gala Day to include teams from Wodonga. In 2020 this will be held on 30 May.

    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!
